TO DO YOGA

The “legs against the wall” pose facilitates circulation, helping swollen and tired legs after the flight.

Place a cushion near a wall, lie down on it, getting as close to the wall as possible, before swinging your legs against the wall. Hold the position for at least five minutes.

WATER NOT WINE

DO NOT give in to temptation. Leave the mini wine bottles alone, even if you’re going on vacation.

“Flying is dehydrating, the air can also dry out your throat, nose and skin, so be sure to drink plenty of water – and avoid alcohol,” says Dr Philippa Kaye.

EAT EGGS

Eggs are a cheap and easy source of B12

B12 is a real energy booster. It deactivates the sleep hormone melatonin and wakes the body up – eggs are an easy and cheap source.

Research shows they play a role in regulating your circadian rhythm, which flying can disrupt.

DRINK ORANGE JUICE

ORANGE juice is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants that support the immune system and digestive health.

It also detoxifies the body, improves circulation and helps manage blood pressure. Enjoy a drink before or during the flight to feel more energized.

MAGIC MAGNESIUM
