sleep tips for a long flight trans Atlantic
  
  
Traveling a long distance can be a pain but lets face it, it's so worth it! What makes a long journey go fast? Sleep! However we all know how hard sleep is on an airplane. We have previously written a guide on how to stop travel sickness, this time we are going to look at what foods can help you sleep on a long haul flight.
Read below for a list of 9 great foods that can keep you full longer, boost sleep hormones and fight jet-lag! 
  

Almond Butter:

Helps regulate blood sugar during a long flight. Almond butter ensures your blood sugar levels don’t get too low.

Bananas:

Bananas contain serotonin (which helps you sleep) and magnesium (which helps relax your muscles).

Chamomile Tea + Honey:

Chamomile tea has long been known to help you both relax and stay calm the honey gives the tea a double whammy effect of controlling blood sugar levels.

Cherries:

As well as tasting delicious cherries contain melatonin which helps with sleep cycle regulation (especially helpful with Jet-lag) allowing you to drift peacefully off.

Nuts:

Particularly walnuts and almonds, both of which contain vitamin B which helps with the production on melatonin (see above).

Oatmeal:

Eat this one a few hours before you go to sleep. Oatmeal will fill you up during sleep so you won’t wake up hungry half way through your journey.

Oranges:

Well known to help with stress resilience. We all know how stressful that crying baby can be!

Seeds:

Contain tryptophan which is involved in the synthesis of vitamin B and is a well-known aid for insomnia.

Warm Milk:

Can help stabilize blood sugar levels but don’t blame us for the odd looks you get when asking the barista to warm up your milk only cup.
