Get rid of JET-LAG

Get rid of JET-LAG

Have you ever flown more than 8 hours? Did the sunrise catch you staring at the ceiling?

If so, you're not the only one. See below for some tips on how to get over jet lag caused by a very long flight.

1. Adjust your bedtime before the flight

Go to bed earlier, or later, depending on what the time zone will be where you're going. When flying east, try to go to bed a few hours earlier than usual. If you're flying west, you'll be up a few extra hours.

2. Set the clock to the new time zone

Once you're on the plane, set your watch to the local time of your new destination and stay awake if it's still daylight.

3. Don't eat too much during the flight

Less is more - avoid high carb foods that can make you feel heavy and tired.

4. Drink lots of water

Avoid alcohol and coffee. They are dehydrating and can further accentuate fatigue.

5. Expose yourself to natural light

Sunlight helps you adjust your body clock, so you'll have more energy when you arrive and feel like you've got a new day ahead of you.

6. Take a few days off

Your body needs a few days to readjust, especially if you come from a warm weather area to a cold weather area, or vice versa.

7. Take a few days off

You can make small changes in your bedroom to help you fall asleep more easily. During sleep, your body temperature drops, which helps you sleep better.

8. Take melatonin

Melatonin is a natural hormone that will help the body return to its natural schedule after long-haul flights. One pill in the morning will help when traveling west and one in the evening when traveling east.
