I also only drink water. I carry an orange or two and eat that on tha plane. It is wonderful to smell the orange as you peel it…when the rest of the 12 hour flight is getting stale.

Moving around is also good.

As soon as I get to my hotel, I start doing 20 minutes of exercises in the hotel room. Those big exercise stretchy bands are good for this. Drink lots of water. Within one hour my feet were down.

I have been traveling internationally for 12 years. I finally figured out how to make them go down. It used to take a week for the swelling to quit.

Hope this is helpful

I upper and lowercase, and have never again had swelling. If I have sore eyes, I do the alphabet with my eyes (closed!).

Try to keep your feet elevated – even using your purse as a footrest will help. Avoid salt and alcohol before and during the flight and drink lots of water.

Europe is my dream, but with a 12-month old, I don’t think it’ll be happening for a little while
They’re not sexy but knee-high compression stockings are awesome when you fly! I wore them when I was pregnant and flying and my legs and feet felt great after the flight! Oh, and getting up to walk around is good too

Keep traveling and I’ll live vicariously through your blog! :)

Cure: get up and walk around or stretch every hour on your flight. Seriously. Keeps the blood flowing. Sounds impractical, but it’s really not.
