Air travelers come in two flavors: those that jump straight into their seats, close their eyes and begin snoring before the beverage cart arrives; and those that suffer from Restless Legs (RLS). These are the folks that dread the trip, squirm, repeatedly look at their watch and cannot sleep even a wink. In these cases, a quick trip between New York and Boston might feel more like a journey to Sydney.
While Restless Legs (RLS) (RLS) typically shows up at bedtime, the stressors of air travel are also known to trigger that uncontrollable urge to kick! Like other incidences of RLS, there is no cure. Nonetheless, there are things that you can do to make for a more comfortable flight experience. Some medications, especially anti-histamines and anti-nausea pills should be avoided, as they are known to worsen the condition. Copious stretching and movement, once on the aircraft may also be beneficial.
Calm Legs and Air Travel for Restless Leg Sufferers
The cornerstone to more comfortable travel may well be the proper use of CalmLegs®. Calm Legs® is made in the USA with all-natural ingredients. Numerous human clinical studies have shown that the active ingredients in the Calm Legs™ formula can dramatically reduce symptoms of Restless Legs (RLS).
Travel Tips for Restless Legs (RLS)
Further to that, there are many strategies that can be employed to work alongside CalmLegs® to improve your travel experience.
As most air travelers know, not all seats are created equal. With this in mind, it may be useful to consider both the airline as well as the seat location when booking travel. In many cases, aisle seats work out better for patients with Restless Legs (RLS). This will reduce your feelings of entrapment and make it easier for you to get up and stretch. Airlines with robust entertainment centers can also provide you with diversions to help take your focus off of the Restless Legs (RLS).
So in summary, in order to have a more enjoyable flight experience, take CalmLegs®, and do all that you can, to supplement the effects of the product. You will arrive at your destination in a calmer, more rested state. Additionally, your seat mates will appreciate your efforts.
