How to pack like a doctor

In surfing, glassy describes perfect conditions; when there’s no wind or chop, and instead the surface of the water—waves and all—is smooth as glass. It’s easy, it’s effortless, it’s ideal.

Ask a flight attendant: How do you get over jet lag?


Naps are your friend (until they aren't).

by Kendra Mills | 07.16.2018

From getting on the plane without being forced to check your bag to finding something that’s actually edible (and TSA-approved) to eat, there’s more to flying high than just booking an aisle seat.

Cue Kendra Mills: Every month, the wellness-loving flight attendant for a major airline (sorry, our lips are sealed) answers your burning questions.

This month The Glassy’s asking: 

What’s the secret to getting over jet lag quickly?

My trick is if I have to take a nap, I make sure to limit myself to no more than an hour.

No matter how tired you are, get up so you can actually get to sleep when it’s nighttime in that city. I’ll make plans with the crew so I have to get up from my nap—otherwise I’ve lost my whole day and I can’t maximize my time somewhere.

Staying hydrated helps with jet lag as well.

In terms of sleeping on the flight there, it depends on the direction you’re traveling. But for me, if I can sleep on a plane that’s a real treat. It helps the time fly by and means that I’m awake when I land.
