    Bit of a random one...

    So sleeping on a a flight! Never managed it and it's a mystery to me how anyone can manage it. I'm alwyas thats one person wide awake on the overnight flights while your body is supposed to be getting back into your time zone.

    I'm away again today so it's more for coming home. Anyone got any tips for sleeping? interested to hear from anyone who couldn't sleep either, and tried something that worked really well.

    I will driving home from the Airport straight away so the get hammered idea is not an option!

    Edit: I suffer from restless leg so sleeping tablets not really an option as they make it a million times worse

    If upgrading your seat isn’t an option, then buy yourself a pillow, ear plugs, an eye mask, and a blanket.

    Honestly I just find listening to the engine and the drone of it is enough to put me to sleep. There’s something strangely soothing about it

    I have suffered from insomnia at various points of my life, but put me on a bus or a plane and I am usually out cold in a few minutes and drooling all over the poor * next to me.At least I usually know her!
