Jet Lag

How to Overcome Jet Lag:

Rapid travel through multiple time zones can take its toll on your physical and mental well-being. “Jet Lag” is the phrase used to describe the condition when an individual’s internal body clock is out of sync with the actual time in the region to which you have traveled. It is important to try to adjust your internal body clock to receive the most out of your tour. Here are some tips on how to adjust your body to local time.

On the day of the flight/arrival:

Get out of bed earlier than usual. Drink a lot of water (not local water) to compensate for the dehydration that is common on long flights. Shortly after your evening meal on your flight, set your watch ahead to actual time. Try to rest or sleep as soon as possible on your eastbound flight. When you arrive try to keep active, and go to bed around 10:00 PM local time.
