How to combat Jet Lag

Jet Lag occurs when you quickly travel across time zones and your body’s usual rhythm falls out of sync. It usually lasts just a short time.

Your body will soon adjust to its new time zone, but there are ways you can try to get yourself on a new schedule more quickly and reduce jet lag symptoms. 

Traveling disrupts the measures your body uses to manage its internal clock, such as daylight, your temperature, and your hormones.

Some symptoms of jet lag include:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Mood Swings
  • Lack of appetite
  • Gastrointestinal conditions like constipation and diarrhoea

 

Manage sleep time

Your flight may be in the air during your destination’s nighttime, so try to get in some sleep while you're on the plane. 

 

Keep hydrated

Long-distance travel may cause dehydration. Proper hydration may help manage jet lag symptoms and travel fatigue, so make sure to keep some water on you.

 

Drink coffee / caffeinated drinks

Drinking caffeine may be a tool to help you stay alert and focused during the daytime. 

Coffee, tea, soda, energy drinks, and even chocolate contain caffeine. Make sure to moderate or eliminate caffeine in the afternoon and evening. You may have difficulty sleeping from a combination of too much caffeine consumption and jet lag.

Make yourself comfortable

Make sure to relax! There's nothing worse when you're tired, than stressing out about how tired you are. We recommend using pillow sprays, essential oils and even an eye mask to block out light when you're trying to sleep.
