In-flight exercises

Exercises to encourage blood flow

In-flight exercises encourage blood flow, calm the mind, and reduce the rare possibility of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

DVT is a blood clot in a deep vein. There is a slight risk of developing DVT if you remain seated in an aircraft for a prolonged duration. Therefore, during your flight, it's important to regularly get up and walk around or carry out the exercises in this guide.

Deepak Chopra’s travel tips

  • Drink plenty of water: Flying dehydrates the body, leaving you tired and irritable.
  • Meditate during your flight: Taking deep breaths will help to calm your mind.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine: These are both extremely dehydrating at high altitudes
  • Eat relatively lightly: Aid digestion by getting up and doing some stretches after your meal.
  • Start a thought journal: If your mind is very active, take a few minutes to write your thoughts in a journal or notebook.
