Loosening Up Stiff Muscles
Flying can be fun and exhausting. If you are traveling long distances, you have to deal with soreness and stiffness of the body. Stretching from your seat is not usually possible, and this is where a tennis ball comes in handy. A tennis ball can convert your stiffness into a comfortable and refreshed feeling.
You can roll the tennis ball along your body, loosening up the stiff muscles. It is an interesting on-the-go self-massage that provides ultimate relaxation to enjoy your flight. There are specific areas of your body to target with the massage. For example, some of the areas that stiffen up during a long flight include the feet, knees, and back.
One can roll the ball with the bottom of their feet to flex their ankles while stretching out their toe muscles. It is a mini massage that can make a tremendous difference to your trip by easing pain through the hamstrings. When it comes to the lower back, long-distance flights can be your worst nightmare. The cramped seating and the minimal space to recline can push you to the boiling point. The tennis ball can work wonders to your back by rolling it over your back while applying some pressure.
