I'm always astounded by how horrible my body feels during and after a flight — even after the short ones! I'm a short person, but I still feel cramped in my economy seat. Even when I put my seat back and elevate my feet on my purse, within an hour, my low back aches, my legs get stiff, my shoulders are hunched forward, and I'm in a sour mood.
On a recent flight back from Hawaii, I did some yoga in my chair and the aisle and it made me feel like I was on cloud nine, comfortable and stretched out. Try these poses on your next flight. They should do the trick in lengthening out your scrunched-up body and make you feel more comfortable.
