reflecting on a plane

I took advantage of down time, casually reflecting on a flight to LAX.

Traveling is hard and stressful, no doubt about it. Security can take way too long but…. here I am!

It’s amazing how relaxing flights can be; once you’re in the air you don’t have much room to stress about what is going on down on land. It’s like I’m in my own corner of the world, just watching TV.

…but I’m flying through the stratosphere. Weirdly, it makes the emotions and anxiety worth it, to have time like this.

Every flight is different: some are relieving but some are hell; the emotions range from time of day, to who you’re sitting around. Right now the key is hydration (no mater how in the mood I am for a coffee). I’ve had the most water I ever have on a flight (wooo!!!) and I have a carry on hand cream and all that jazz. If i can knock out some of the dehydration to come that’d be great, because to have anything on top of jet lag is not ideal.


Finally it’s starting to hit me where I’m going (see here). Look at me being so optimistic!!!!!! (when next, I have a 7 hour layover and three more flights)! Emotions are weird let me tell you!!!

question for you: How do you stay sane on a plane?

okie,

over & out

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with flying. My carry on is always fully loaded with water, a sleep kit, snacks, a book, pen, headphones and my iPod. Sometimes I’m able to sleep through, whereas other times I’m wide awake and left grumpy upon landing. My last international flight was not fun and terribly long, which made me feel unnecessarily stressed. I hope the rest of your flights are as comfy and relaxed! Don’t sleep too much, it could make the jet lag more difficult to overcome when you land. Safe travels —Ally
