    Once again you have given brilliant advice and found products and ideas that have me laughing out loud! The pillow wig has been added to my list but until I find one I will just tie my head to the seatback with a scarf! LOL

      Ha! Ha! I want to travel with you! We would be laughing too much to sleep!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! 🙂

  2. Great tips Natalie! I hadn’t thought of a lot of these. I am pretty good at sleeping when I need to usually, but these tips will for sure help that out

    I always sleep on the plane! Even if the flight is in the middle of the day, as soon as I get in the plane I feel tired. Don’t know why ahah! Sometimes I can’t even watch a whole movie! But eventually I prefer this than the opposite 😉

  4. I cannot sleep well on a plane. I envy people who can sleep on a plane really well. There are probably a lot of factors to consider. Also, I have not found the perfect neck pillow that is suitable for me. You have provided a good list of travel pillows. Have you read about the Trtl Travel Pillow? I have not bought it yet because I am still not sure.

    Thanks for sharing these tips, I always bring a huge cashmere scarf with me on flights, it can double as a (comfortable) blanket. I definitely need to check out the Ostrich pillow, I can fall asleep anywhere, but awaking without a painful neck is the dream!

    I don’t sleep too well on a plane and I always end up quite exhausted by the end of it. It is nice to see some very great products. I would love a compressor socks too and I never travel anywhere without a travel pillow these days.

    I haven’t had much issues sleeping on planes in the past. As I get older it seems to get a little harder getting comfortable on a plane. I like these suggestions of using the seat next to you as a head rest. Thankfully I don’t have to worry about my feet or legs swelling.

  9. Thanks for the tips! I am one of those strange people that can fall asleep as soon as I sit down on a plane – it must be something about the hum of the engine! I always seem to wake up with neck pain though from the uncomfortable seats so I think i’ll check out that ostrich pillow – I may look crazy wearing it but at least i’ll be comfortable!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      What a lucky guy! Some people have the exact opposite problem and can never sleep on a plane! Hope the pillow helps you comfort – you’ll sleep even better!

  10. I always end up quite exhausted because I don’t sleep too well on a plane.Thanks for the tips.

    Very informative article with great suggestions, Natalie. Sleeping on a plane is something that’s rarely discussed and you’ve articulated brilliantly. Outfit is the most important thing along with some nice cancellation headphones and proper posture. A neck band too does wonders as you said. But the most important part is the outfit and layering it. You never know the temperature you will be flying in.

    Sleeping in the plane is topic never expected to be spoken. But the tips you gave for the relaxed plane journey are really very nice. starting from top to bottom and even the headphones for music to have a relaxed sleep.

  13. I always spend my time with coloring & reading books on the plane. But after some point of time, I’ll get boredom & go for a deep sleep. But sleeping while travel is quite difficult & head will roll & drool which gives severe pain. Then I found a airplane pillow that gives relief of pain & allows restful sleep. This article could really help for a person who is traveling all the time like me.

  14. Sleeping on plane is really tough for me. If I take a neck pillow, then I can sleep only. Your article will be really helpful to them who travel by air frequently.
