On your next plane flight, bring some gum! The chewing stimulates saliva – and the extra swallowing helps equalize the pressure between your inner and outer ear. Plus, we tend to hold a lot of tension in our jaw – and chewing gum releases it. It also boosts blood flow to your brain and reduces levels of stress hormones. So if you have any flying anxiety, you’ll feel more relaxed.
