It’s been an awful long time since I took a red eye flight anywhere. But on the 21st I started out on a 23 hour plus travel day. And I felt GREAT at the end of it.
Here I humbly submit my Red Eye Flight Tips!
I woke up as usual on Saturday, January 21st. A typical weekend day for me – about 6 am. But today was going to be a different day. At 3 pm we were headed to the airport en route to Costa Rica. Because the flights were booked on points, we did not have the most direct flight path:
January 21 – 6:20 pm Vancouver to Seattle
January 21 – 11:55 pm Seattle to Houston
January 22 – 8:50 am Houston to Liberia, CR
January 22 – 4:00 pm arrive at Occidental Grand Papagayo Hotel (ahhhhhhh)
Point A to Point B took 23 hours (accounting for time change)
I went to sleep about 10 pm, so I was awake for 38 hours.
But here’s where it gets interesting… I wasn’t exhausted, my eyes weren’t burning, my head was clear. Certainly a very different experience to every other red eye flight I have been on. What made this so very different? Why, this time, did I feel just fine, thank you very much?
There are a few basics I followed: I didn’t eat any airport food… no refined sugars or flours. I stayed hydrated – probably 4 litres of water throughout that 38 hours. I walked while waiting at the airports (1/2 hour at least in each Seattle and Houston – not including the incidental hikes from gate to gate).
But the big, big difference was MAX. I don’t use this blog to bash the drum on my products very often, but this time I will because I know the REAL difference this time were my constant diligence to taking my supplements.
Here’s how it went down:
2 x MaxATP – our clean energy drink, keeping your energy up while preventing any kind of crash.
4 x Max N-Fuze – our vitamin powder… just mix with water and voila! I probably didn’t need this much but I figured the more the merrier. I knew I would be stuck in metal tubes with a bunch of people loaded with germs. The best defense is a good offense! Right?
8 x MaxGXL – our antioxidant product. Quite literally the best product on the market for cellular health. I know that the MaxGXL kept me alert, focused, pain free and stress free for the duration.
I say thanks Max for keeping my trip safe from any health concerns before it even got started.
Costa Rica – let the games begin!!!!!!
