How to sleep on an airplane

Get comfortable. Not until you “unravel your body over the odd contours” of a plane’s uncomfortably compact seat will you fall asleep. Joel Harper, the Olympic trainer and author of Joel Harper’s Six Pack: Nine Short Workouts, has designed a regimen you can perform in the close quarters of coach class.

Stretch your arms. First put your left hand, with your palm facing out, on your left hip, so it resembles a “chicken wing.” Pull your elbow “around slightly” and breathe deeply into the “tightest area and relax it.” Do the same with your right arm.

Stretch your hips. “Cross your left leg over your right leg,” leaving your left ankle to rest on the right quadricep. Once the ankle is near the right knee, place your left elbow atop your left knee. Finally, “lean forward, pressing your lower back toward your left ankle.” Put on your eyemask and take off to Dreamland before leaving the runway.
