JET LAG SOLUTION

JET LAG SOLUTION

You’ve waited all year for your holiday. You have finally at your hotel for your dream trip. The palm trees and waving, the beach is just a few feet away – and not only can you hardly stay awake, you are having trouble concentrating, you feel very irritable, you have diarrhea and a roaring headache! Some holiday! It is only temporary, you have jet lag.

The more time zones you cross, the worse the jet lag will be.

  • Before you leave, live on a sensible schedule for a couple of weeks.
  • Get enough sleep before you leave.
  • Fly during the day so you will arrive at night if you can. Have a light meal and go to bed. You’ll feel a lot better in the morning.
  • Don’t drink alcohol on your flight. You’ll arrive dehydrated.
  • Drink plenty of fluids – airlines cabins just suck the moisture out of your body so you need to replenish it regularly.
  • Don’t nap at your destination; you will only delay your time zone adjustment.
  • Keep to your regular exercise routine.
  • Try to avoid making any important decisions when you first arrive and be sure that you watch your luggage and wallet. Thieves know about jet-lag inattention and are quick on the unwary.
  • Prepare for your return trip. Jet lag isn’t over when you get home; it has just gone into reverse.
