Keep Loose On Long Flights With These Simple Plane Exercises

Long haul flights can be really tough on you if you don't approach them the right way. To keep your cramped body from getting too stiff at 10,000m, this graphic has seven exercises you can do on the plane to loosen up.

After a few hours in a plane, there's a good chance your limbs and muscles will hate you a little bit. This graphic, from Sadie Geoghegan at travel site Thomas Cook, includes seven basic exercises you can mostly from your own seat.

It includes activities like making circles with your feet, pulling your knees up, rolling your neck, and taking an occasional stroll down the aisle (when the seatbelt light is off, of course). It may seem like these exercises are really simple, but you might be surprised what a little movement can do for you in the long run.
