Before traveling with a large travel backpack, there is no doubt that you can be very excited. Contrary to this excitement, the only difference is the long-distance flight. If you are going to take an airplane, especially an airplane that spans several hemispheres and multiple time zones, it is actually a journey to hell. Your body may feel uncomfortable, so before setting off, you must first understand the health guidelines for flying on an airplane. If you are carrying a backpack, make sure you have what you need in the messenger bag or backpack and are easily accessible.

1. One of the risk in air travel is thrombosis in the legs or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is also called "Economy Class Syndrome". This situation is usually caused during long-distance flights. Due to the narrow sitting posture and leg space, sitting still for a period of time increases the risk of DVT. We recommend that you implement the following 5 suggestions:

-Wear loose clothes and comfortable shoes.

Air Travel Health Tips


-Avoid crossing your legs when sitting down.
-Get up from your seat and walk the aisle at least once an hour. If you are pregnant, please apply for an aisle seat so that you can get up easily.
-Please keep the space under the seat in front of you empty so that you can exercise your feet and ankles occasionally.
-Drink at least 8 ounces of water every hour or every two hours. Avoid alcohol, caffeinated beverages and savoury foods.

2. Earache. During takeoff and landing, the cabin air pressure changes rapidly, disturbing the pressure balance between the outer ear and the middle ear. When higher pressure stretches the tympanic membrane (the diaphragm that separates the outer ear from the middle ear), many people experience pain.

If you experience this symptom, you can help this process by swallowing, chewing gum, yawning, or opening your mouth wide. You can also use a technique called "Valsalva" movement: close your nose with your thumb and index finger, and then gently exhale from the mouth.

3. Time difference. Traveling through time zones often causes jet lag, which can cause headaches, stomach upset and nausea, inattention, and difficulty sleeping. To alleviate this situation, get enough sleep and improve your immune system before you start traveling.

Keep enough moisture before, during and after the flight. Remember to put bottled water or kettle on travel laptop backpack. After arriving at your destination, adjust your sleep and meal time to the new time zone.

If you span multiple time zones, it can be difficult. If you cannot stay awake before the night of arrival, please take a nap for no more than one or two hours. Participating in some local social activities after arriving at your destination can also help you adjust your body clock. At the same time, you can quickly get to know the city through social activities.
