Travel Season: How to Sleep on an Airplane

Posted on | June 20, 2013

Can’t sleep on an airplane?!? Trouble with jetlag? Here are my thoughts on the “Dream Water” relaxation/sleep shot.

For those of you who have traveled with me you know that despite all of my best intentions to keep you company as we travel around the world I will in fact be asleep before the plane takes of the runway. People ask me all the time how I do it. I guess when I am on a plane I am able to relax because there really is nothing I have to do. Yes I have used that uninterrupted time to work on a plane before but for about the last five years I have dedicated it purely to sleeping and trying to get on track with whatever time zone I am in. Well since I cannot give you that relaxation method I found something else for you. I have suggested this to a few people but hadn’t actually tried it but now that I have here is my review.

 

Awhile back I was given a bottle of “Dream Water” by a promo guy at the airport to help me sleep on a flight to Europe. I have carried with me quite a few times but ironically have always fallen asleep before trying it.

 

One day I looked it up to read a review of it…always being weary of something that is going to put me to sleep. It certainly had mixed reviews. Most people said it was way too powerful.

 

Well with my new-found (non-caffeinated) energy and the fact that I haven’t been on a plane to sleep in a week I decided I would try it out the other night. I figured given the reviews I would tread lightly. I drank one third of the bottle, about 0.80oz and was out like a light. Six hours later I was back up bright eyed and bushy tailed, no drowsiness like people complained of. It absolutely works to help you relax and sleep and makes you feel “dreamy” a sensation I can’t explain except maybe those seconds like when you are going under for surgery. That being said if you have never taken a sleep aid I would suggest you try ¼ of the bottle or less…it is a really small amount but plenty powerful. I cannot imagine what the entire bottle would do, nor do I intend to try.

 

I am certainly not advocating using this all the time but it would be super helpful for those of you traveling this summer than have issues with jetlag and trouble sleeping on long flights or trouble at home sleeping when stressed. I would suggest it is a much better alternative than addictive sleeping pills. I am sure the manufacturer has lots of other disclaimers too but I just have to add do not take this if you have to drive, wake up at a certain time, be alert to take care of children or anything else important until you know how it will affect you.
