First and foremost you want to keep well hydrated for your venture. Don’t let yourself get sick by ignoring your health. Pack yourself some healthy snacks so you don’t have to rely on the junk food that may be available to you on the plane or in the airport.
Have some tasks ready that you can do without being connected to the internet. You can write letters and lists or prepare documents that can be downloaded, sent or printed once you land and save time.
Be sure to spend the night before your flight charging all the electronics you will need. Don’t wait till you head out to realize your phone or laptop are dead. Airplane mode will help you save battery power until you can land and charge up again.
Be sure to check out your surroundings on the flight. You may be sitting next to a future customer, partner, or mentor who can help you in the long run. Be sure to meet and greet.
Try to exercise whenever and wherever you can. Many airports have an exercise room or relaxing area for stretching, or an outside trail for jogging or walking. If you don’t have time for that try working out on a flight of stairs or just getting in some good leg stretches. It will help to energize you and keep you awake for what’s ahead.
As the old saying goes…all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. This stands true for businessmen as well. If you spend a 10 hour flight doing constant work you will be worn out by the time you land. Take a break. Listen to your favorite music or play a mindless game to relax and get your thoughts off your work for a few minutes. It will help you in the long run.
If you are a fearful flyer for whatever reason, take the time before take-off to relax in whatever way you do best, whether it be meditating, listening to music or talking to that calming person. By the time you are in flight you will have gotten rid of the stress and be ready for some business.
Keeping a running list of your tasks may help you be less stressful as well. Jot down your basic itinerary from the time you board through your landing and try to finish them before the flight is over. This will keep you from getting to your destination only to realize you forgot the most important thing on your schedule.
If you happen to be one of those people who has everything done before boarding, spend your flight time relaxing and gearing up for that big meeting or presentation. You will be refreshed and ready for whatever the day sends your way.
