Follow these in-flight stretching tips to keep blood flowing and muscles limber.

If you can get up, hold onto the back of your seat or a wall for balance. Place one leg behind you with the toes 12 inches from your front heel. Shift weight to the back leg and slightly bend the knee, then slowly lean forward over the front foot to stretch. Switch legs and repeat this calf stretch. If you can’t leave your seat, put your hands on your hips and twist your shoulders and your torso from side to side (being careful not to bump your seatmate). Next, slowly straighten your arms and pull your shoulder blades together until you feel a stretch. Hold for a count of 10.
