While constant jet lag and waiting can be a challenging aspect of air travel, those precious hours spent in the sky are far from a hardship for me.
I value the time in the air when no one can get in touch with me. It’s a very rare thing. I listen to music, read a magazine, a book, watch a movie, but I am careful not to be busy the entire flight.
These quiet, reflective moments help me thrive despite the feeling I often have at home of being overloaded. For me, it’s all about relaxation when traveling.
Cocooned in my seat, I close my eyes, breathe deeply, relax, recharge and refuel. I think about my life. For me, time in the air is creative and meditative.
My top tip? Turn off the music, TV or laptop and give yourself the gift of quiet, unstructured time.
