Tips to sleep on a plane
While a few lucky folks can pass out easily upon takeoff, for most of us, quality in-flight sleep is a struggle. And that can lead to exhaustion and several nights of playing catch-up when you arrive at your final destination.
Beyond the tips you likely already know—invest in earplugs, an eyemask, wear comfy clothing; and upgrade to a first class ticket (#lifegoals)—here are 6 tips for more ways you can rest en route.
1. Uncross your legs
2. Wear socks
3. Lean back
4. Avoid alcohol
5. Don't eat too much
6. Power down all electronics
Simply bend one end of the product around yourself or the back your seat and bend the other end into a secure position for your head. You can even use the hand to hold your device for movie time.
Roll it up in less than 5 sec
Where to use it?
MonPère founder and inventor Sylvain Bérubé is a Montréal-based sports therapist and trainer. After years of travelling around the world and living in unseen countries he decided that it was time we get rid off the traditional problem of bad sleep on the planes. The MonPère project all started when he saw his daughter Raphaëlle's bent sleep posture on a road trip in Hawaii. At that time he did what dads do best. He fixed it. 4 years of development and testing has passed to finally bring you MonPère sleep tool. A travel pillow that offers support, security and a quirky personality. Just like dad.
Secure your head
Lean your head back, forward or to the side. MonPère keeps your head resting comfortably in the position you choose. No more bouncing around.
MonPère uses your natural pressure points to create resistance. Wake up feeling rested, not like you just got run over by a truck. Sized for children and adults.
Weird for a reason
Our quirky form is the sum of countless tests and prototypes. The result is an unexpected design with human form hands to keep your head resting securely.
