Planning a vacation soon? Fantastic! But we all know how terrible it can feel to land and be completely tired and worn out from travelling. As unfortunate as it can be, we all need to find ways to deal with our jetlag. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of tips to help you get comfortable when you land for your vacation.
Try Your Hardest to Get Some Rest
Before you travel, make sure you get plenty of sleep on your flight. If the flight is short, then ensure you get some rest either way because travelling can really take its toll on you. You’ll want to try and align your sleeping pattern as best as possible with the country you’re visiting. For instance, if your flight to Indonesia will take 18 hours in total, then you’ll want to try and catch a flight that will help you line up your sleep and transfer time so that you either land fully-rested from sleeping on your flight or land at night so you can head straight to bed.
Finding Your Accommodation
There are many different forms of accommodation around the world and you might find it easier to book it ahead of time so that you don’t end up sitting around the check-in desk, or potentially be turned away because there are no spaces for you. You could also book rentals like Rent Mission Beach in advance so you don’t need to bother with a lengthy check-in process. Rentals are usually preferred if you want comfort too because you’ll have an entire home to yourself.
Unpacking and Making Yourself at Home
If you are in a rental or a rather large hotel room and plan to stay for a few days, make yourself comfortable. Unpack your bags and hang your clothes up so you don’t need to rummage through your luggage and give yourself some extra homely touches by getting yourself a few amenities. Whether it’s a collection of drinks or tea that you can make in your own time or some tissue boxes that you bought at a local convenience store, adding some small touches can make you feel at home.
Get Some Food
Airplane food isn’t particularly filling or tasty unless you’re lucky enough to be in an upper or first class cabin. But even then, the food isn’t exactly very filling and you’re better off having a full meal when you land. Whether it’s at a local cafe, fast food place or in the hotel you’re staying at, make sure you get a good meal to help you settle in and fix your internal clock. If it’s already close to bedtime, then you may want to skip any meals.
Now that you’re all settled in, it’s time to start exploring! However, if you’ve just landed and you’re still full of energy, walking around and exploring should help you expend some energy and get you ready for sleep so you can wake up feeling refreshed for tomorrow.
