Blessed are those who can sleep on a plane unbothered by the presence of hundreds of other people – many of whom are, intentionally or accidentally, annoying. If you have a hard time naturally falling asleep during a flight, here are some essentials that can help make sleeping on an airplane mission possible.
It all starts with cleaning up. Often, people have difficulty relaxing because they feel their surroundings are dirty. Well, grab a pack of disinfecting wipes and go wild. No one will make a problem out of your making the plane cleaner and fresher.
After you’ve cleaned your seat, it’s time to get comfortable. Put on an eye mask to help block light and distractions.
Since the dawn of travel, people have turned to pillows for extra comfort. There is a myriad of shapes and materials for you to choose from, but make sure you give it a try before you make the purchase. One pillow does not fit every neck!

Now that you’ve settled in nicely, it’s time to completely cut off the world and sink into your seat while listening to your favorite tunes. Mozart or Cardi B, it doesn’t matter – as long as it helps you relax and get in the zone.
In an era of limited legroom, you can wonder where to put your legs so that they are comfortable. Well, welcome to the portable footrest and its smart design. Just attach it to the seat back tray table, and you’re good to go.
If you love cuddling or you need a little extra fluff to help you fall asleep, grab yourself a blanky. There are special travel blankets you can buy, or you can bring your favorite quilt from home (as long as it’s size-friendly!). Who said couch blankets aren’t fit to use on airplanes anyway?
