If there is one aspect of travelling that we hate, it’s long-haul flights. Sitting in an aeroplane seat for hours without much mobility isn’t exactly a lot of fun and it begins to tell on our body in the form of stiff limbs.
Sitting still for such a long time can have negative effects on your body as well. Blood clots can develop during long flights, causing pain and swelling – which can possibly lead to deep vein thrombosis that could be life-threatening.
The best way to prevent this is by moving about – which, on a plane more than 30,000km in the air, can seem hard to do. However, there are some stretches you can do on your long-haul flights that will keep the blood moving in your body.
