I just wrote a post for Club Carlson’s new blog on how to sleep better on a plane. Since I’ve been flying over 150,000 miles a year for the past 15 years I’ve seen all kinds of methods and contraptions that passengers use to try to sleep better on airplanes. Everyone is different, but flying as much as I do, I know what works. Here are my nine ways to help you sleep better on a plane.
1. An eye mask
Eye masks help you create an ideal sleeping environment by blocking out all the light. Instead of using the cheap, scratchy eye masks that the airlines sometimes pass out on long flights, I bring my own fluffy one. I might look silly in it, but it feels so good and does the trick. You can get good ones for under $10.
Bringing earplugs is self-explanatory and is essential for a good night’s sleep.
3. Noise-cancelling headphones and soft music
If there’s a screaming baby near you, earplugs aren’t going to the trick. In that case, pop on your noise-cancelation headphones or ear buds and play soft music, an audio book or meditation music to drown out the noise and put you to sleep.
