hair-raising airtime?
12 ways to distract yourself

Not looking forward to your pending air travel?
you're far from alone.
Only one in four Americans actually finds flying
enjoyable, while 40 percent consider it bearable
and a full 27 percent find it simply awful, reports
a recent CnBC survey. Fewer than 10 percent think
airline seats are comfortable enough, and three of
four find overcrowding an issue.
A few of the other joys include invasive security
checks, squalling or seat-kicking children,
annoying neighbors who ignore personal space,
claustrophobic bathrooms and/or long, hot delays
after boarding.
"We have all experienced it; that long-haul flight
where you feel like you couldn't bare another
single second of sitting in that torture device of
a contraption they call a 'seat,'" notes an article on
SeattlesTravels.com. "you are about to lose it when
your neighbor bumps into your arm for the 22nd
time and your leg has started to tingle. Flying isn't
really that bad, but when you start to get a little
moody in a small space, it can start to feel that way."
What can be done? probably very little when

it comes to getting you to your destination in
the shortest amount of time. The best tactic is
to make plans for distracting yourself the entire
time. Fortunately that's made much easier these
days thanks to internet access via in-flight Wi-Fi.
A few suggestions for transcending your on-plane
surroundings:
1. Listen to audiobooks. If you're the kind of
person who can completely immerse herself in
a good story, these can be invaluable. Thanks to
libraries and online source, title options are nearly
limitless. Learn something new, take a virtual
adventure or simply let yourself be entertained.
2. Indulge in deep thinking. Seldom might
you otherwise have this length of time to apply
uninterrupted brainpower to your life and career.
List steps for improvement and/or solidify your
bucket list.
3. Check out some tunes. And don't necessarily
stick to standbys: challenge yourself to listen to
artists you've heard of but never experienced.
upload your ipod or other personal device with
your favorite new selections.
