While it’s exciting to go on a long journey and get to your destination, what’s not very exciting is the actual journey itself – particularly time spent waiting around. Long overlays at airports can be a fact of life. But the better prepared you are to handle that long overlay, the less time it will feel like you are there, waiting, bored with nothing to do.
So, charge up your phone, pack with some comfy clothing essentials, and read through this list to make sure you’re ready to go.
Take a nap
This is perhaps the best way to kill time at an airport on a long overlay. Nobody likes a long overlay unless they have a lot of work to do on their laptop, a comfy chair, and a charge point, so the best way to get through the time is to fast forward it. Unlike the movies, the only way that we can press fast forward on our lives is to sleep!
People will try anything to get comfortable
Now, you won’t always be able to get a comfy chair or a chair at all to nap on for your journey. But do have a look around the airport to see what you can find.
Be prepared for your nap. You may need to sleep on the ground, and it may be cold. A big coat, blanket, or other clothes to put on the ground will make it easier to nap. An eye mask or just something to cover your face will keep out the bright lights. Earbuds with some music or a sleep app, or earplugs will ensure the outside sound doesn’t bother you. Make sure you’re napping out of the way of other travellers and don’t forget to set an alarm to make sure you don’t miss your onward flight.
Watch a movie
Movies are a great way to kill time, whether you’re mid-flight, or between flights. The best way to make sure you can watch the movies that you like on your phone or computer is to download them in advance, so you don’t have to rely on the airport WIFI.
It pays to either find somewhere near to a charging port to watch your movie (as watching movies can reduce your battery quickly) or carry a portable charger when you fly (these only work for phones and tablets, not laptops). The greater the portable charger’s mAh capacity, the more charge it holds.
Do be aware that many phones have a limited memory and might not be able to hold many movies. Download movies in standard definition instead of high definition so they take up less space.
Play some games on your phone
No matter whether you are a casual player or a hardcore gamer, there is a game or games out there for everyone! Because you’re in the airport, you’ll have WIFI, which is good news – when you’re in the air you can only play phone games that have an offline option.
Again, it’s best to download some games before you fly, so that you’re already prepared for your layover. What’s your favourite type of game? Are you an RPG fan and want to play some Final Fantasy? Still hooked on Candy Crush? Or more of a fan of casino games like poker, slots and more?
Browse through the app store and download a few favourites to keep you entertained.
Read a book (or browse the bookstore)
You don’t even need a phone for this one. Before the mobile phone was popular, airports and planes were full of people reading books. So do like they did and pick up a big book for your layover. Fiction or non-fiction the choice is yours – a stack of magazines will suffice, too.
If you have forgotten to pick up a book before your flight, then not to worry, most airports will have a book store or section. Have a read of the backs of the books and see if they might interest you. Even if you don’t end up buying one, it’s a good way to see what’s out there at the moment in terms of literature – and a good way to kill time.
Do some shopping or check out the shops
When the real boredom sets in, your phone has run out of batteries, or you simply can’t sleep, it’s time to have a look around the shops and see what’s about. Are there some souvenir shops stuffed to the brim with local treats? Gucci and Prada stores? What’s going on at the food court?
If you wind up extremely bored, then do a thorough look through all the shops. You probably won’t find something you decide you can’t live without, but who knows? Chat to a shop assistant if they look bored. It’s always interesting to see what the latest and greatest electronics are, and if you get a chatty assistant, they’ll be able to tell you all about each and every one of them, whether you decide to buy or not.
Try a local delicacy
If you’re in an international airport en-route somewhere else, and you’ve never visited the country itself, then it’s a good opportunity to try out the local dish of the region. Airports will always have a local food section, so you can see what’s on offer, pick up a snack or meal, and taste some of what the region has to offer – all without having to leave the airport. If you like what you eat enough, you may be tempted to visit beyond the airport one day!
Relaxation Of CBD In NFL – An Insight
There has been a lot of buzz around CBD in recent years, especially in the health and wellness industry.
Many sports associations and players around the world have also recognized CBD as a pro sports
However, one of the most coveted associations- the National Football League, more popularly known as
the NBD had been quite strict in its ban of cannabis related products, including CBD. But in recent times,
there seems to be some good news in store both for eh players and every CBD shop as the association is
considering lifting the blanket ban and allowing players to use CBD, which has become popular for its
What Is CBD?
Before we proceed to understand the decision of the NFL, it is important to understand what CBD is and
how it is different from the other cannabis product. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the primary chemicals
found in the cannabis plant, the other being THC. However, contrary to common beliefs, CBD is not
psychoactive in nature. It does not cause the user to feel ‘high.’ This is because high quality CBD does
not contain even trace amounts of THC, which is responsible for these reactions.
In fact, many recent studies indicate that CBD is an excellent medicine to cure several physical and
mental conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, and depression.
Why Do Sportspersons Recommend CBD Use?
If you are into sports and athletics, avoiding injuries is almost impossible. While painkillers may be
helpful in managing the pain, they have numerous side effects on the other organs of the body. That is
why many players and athletes are now in favor of using CBD to manage their pains and injuries.
Sourced from organically grown hemp, CBD helps in alleviating the pain without injuring any other
organs of the body. It is no wonder that players are in favor of using CBD in place of the synthetic drugs
that are available in the market.
CBD For Sleep
For your body to perform its best, it is important for it to be well-rested and rejuvenated. This can only
happen through sound sleep. For many players, who suffer from muscle cramps and injuries, getting
proper sleep becomes a challenge. CBD can be very helpful in those circumstances as well. By soothing
the nerves, CBD helps the body to fall asleep faster and also the quality sleep that it needs.
Good sleep can also help the body in replenishing its worn and torn tissues faster.
The Changes Anticipated In NFL
The NFL, which has one of the strictest policies regarding drug testing, is now considering changing its
policies, especially the ones that are related to CBD. The players who test positive for cannabis will not
be directly suspended from the team. Rather a fine will be imposed on them as per the number of times
that they test positive.
The threshold for testing has also been changed as the players now will only be tested during the first
two weeks of the training camp, in place of the April- August testing policy that was followed earlier.
These progressive changes seem to be a direct result of the changed perception that most people have
regarding CBD today.
It is also worthy to note here that CBD is legal in all the American states, with minor restrictions on the
amount and the concentration of the product. Players are the happiest with this new move as they are
of the opinion that CBD works much better and is far less addictive than the painkillers that are given on
prescription. Even the sports associations around the world are also likely to reconsider their policy on
CBD after this change.
