Most of us have been there – stuck between flights and in need of a way to pass the time at the airport. Nowadays most people turn to their mobile devices, but games and apps can use a lot of data and even more of your phone or tablet’s precious battery life. So here are some other options for making the most of your down time at the gate:
Catch up on current events: With all that’s going on in the world, there’s always time to get up to date on the goings on of the world outside of our daily bubbles. Find a TV showing the news or pick up a newspaper and learn what’s happening overseas, or even new developments around the country that you’ve missed.
Train your brain: Puzzles and books are one of the easiest and most beneficial ways to waste your extra time waiting for a flight. Puzzle books like Sudoku or crosswords can help you eat up a lot of time, and bringing a few novels or magazines along is always a great way to distract yourself from the wait.
Bar Hop: Every airport has at least one or two places to grab a drink, and most have far more than that. Sit down, relax, and have a drink while you wait for your flight. Just always remember to drink responsibly. It’s a great way to loosen up for your flight and burn some down time. Try chatting with another patron – you never know who you may meet!
Catch up on sleep: Waiting for your flight is the perfect time to grab some z’s before you’re off. Whether it’s before an early morning flight or waiting for a connection, grabbing some shut eye during the wait will make you feel better when you’re finally at your destination.
