We love to travel, but whether it’s short or long-haul, flying is not always the most enjoyable experience. Being trapped in a metal cylinder with a few hundred strangers for hours on end can become uncomfortable, no matter how often you travel.

As much as we wish we could all fly business class every time, there’s no need to throw all of your cash away on upgrades just yet! Invest in a few small luxuries and you could arrive on the other end feeling like a first-class-flying superstar.

These are some of our favourite in-flight essentials.

Backup portable charger

Whether its accessing in-flight wi-fi, watching movies or just to make sure you arrive at your destination fully charged, a portable charger is a great investment to give your devices enough extra juice to last that 20 hour flight.

Silk Pillowcase & Travel Case, The Goodnight Co.

Don’t stop your beauty regime for that long haul flight. Wake up feeling refreshed and ditch the frizz. The cling free properties in these silk pillowcases will mean arriving looking like you had your blow dry during the flight, instead of 24 hours ago. And so you don’t misplace your precious sleep companion on the plane or your hotel, snap up a handy silk travel case at the same time. The travel case will remind you to pack up your pillowcase before you depart, and is small enough to stuff into even the most duty-free shopping-laden carry on luggage.

Ear Plugs.

Screaming child sitting two rows behind you? Enough said.

Eye Mask, The Goodnight Co.

An eye mask is as necessary to long haul travel as Nutella is to a broken heart. If you haven’t yet discovered the 100 % Mulberry Silk eye-mask by The Goodnight Co. then you are possibly not taking your travel comfort seriously enough.

Hydrating Face Mist

A face mist is a fantastic way to keep your skin hydrated during a long flight. The calming and delicate properties of rose in Sodashi’s Calming Rose Face Mist cool sensitive and inflamed skin while reducing redness and inflammation. The perfect way to make sure you arrive at your destination looking refreshed.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Whether you’re watching the seat back screen or the movies you pre-loaded on your tablet, noise cancelling headphones are a great idea to ensure you can actually hear and enjoy your choice of in-flight entertainment. We love these ones from Bose

Travel in luxury, but always remember that travel of any kind is a marathon and packing too much will quickly lead to exhaustion. The key is packing just the right amount of the things you really need!

    The Goodnight Co.

    Shea Morrison has worked in health & wellness for a while now. After a career in Media, Radio & Marketing in Brisbane, Shea became a Mum and her focus changed as she realised the importance of meaningful rest and connection. In 2014, Shea joined forces with friend, Mum and now business partner, Danielle Knight to create The Goodnight Co., a meaningful platform to help people fall back in love with sleep and prioritise meaningful rest. At the time, Shea & Danielle were sleep deprived Mums after just having had their youngest children. Launching with Silk Pillowcases & Silk Sleep Masks, the pair then spent the next five years researching and surveying hundreds of people about their sleep problems, gradually developing many more lines of products to help our customers build sleep rituals to solve these problems. Fast forward five years, millions of research papers and thousands of podcasts, Shea's passion continues to lie in sharing how better sleep can help everyone improve their day-to-day lives.
    With sleep problems still on the rise, Shea & Danielle were constantly being asked for more information on how to help people re-discover quality sleep. As a result, The Goodnight Co.'s first Sleep Retreats and Sleep Workshops launched in 2019. The Retreat & Workshops allow personalised help for those struggling with disrupted sleep patterns and provide a mixture of education and relaxation, science and deep sleep, meditation and mindfulness.
    For our Retreats, Shea & Danielle found the perfect location at Springfield Farm in the Southern Highlands of Bowral; a beautiful location with lots of space to connect with nature, fresh air, nourishing food and a space to support our guests, who could walk away feeling equiped with the tools to re-build their sleep rituals. For our business focused Workshops, Shea & Danielle have been able to connect with workplace professionals and provide tailored industry specific advice on how sleep can be impacting employees and what management and staff can do to improve this area of their health, and productivity.
    Along with The Goodnight Co., Shea is also a Mum to Max & Molly, wife, Director of boutique advertising agency, Collaborative Media, marriage celebrant, entrepreneur, and avid podcast subscriber.
