Whether it’s a quick regional trip or an international long-haul, stepping off a plane always feels like an incredible relief. Once you’ve collected your bags and made your way back up the jetway, it can be easy to get caught up in the excitement of your new destination or the routine of settling back in at home. But according to flight attendants, there’s one thing that should always be on your post-arrival to-do list.
Note: I was thinking like saying a prayer or shaking the pilot’s hand, but read on and you will find out what this flight attendant suggests.
Get some sunlight and spend time in a green space outdoors after you land.
Once you arrive at your destination and settle in, your first instinct may be to grab your camera see the sights. On the other hand, you could also feel exhausted, groggy, and desperate for a cup of coffee. Instead of lying down for a nap, try spending time outdoors to refresh your senses and shake off the effects of hours spent inside a confined space, flight attendants tell lifestyle website The Travel.
If you’re staying in a city, your hotel’s rooftop, balcony, or outdoor patio can provide the fresh air you need to clear your head. But if you’re feeling up for it, a brisk walk to a nearby beach or park can reinvigorate your body—and allow you to soak up some much-needed vitamin D from the sunshine.
Exposure to natural sunlight can help you overcome any jet lag and feel more alert.
If you’ve spent enough time traveling to need some outdoor refreshment, there’s also a good chance your trip has caused you to change time zones. Adjusting your internal clock when you land—or even just making yourself feel more alert—can be a lot easier if you spend some time outdoors in the sun at your destination to help shift your body’s circadian rhythm (the scientific term for natural sleep cycles).
