Travel Diary: How To Beat The Jet Lag

plane

Imagine! You’ve just landed in a beautiful new place, ready to explore to your heart’s content, only to hit a wall — the jet lag wall. It definitely ruins plans, but here’s a few way you can beat the system:

1 – Go to bed at the right time and by right time we mean at night in whatever time zone you’re in.

2 – Minimize light if you need to nap. A good eye mask can help.

3 – Take it easy on yourself. If you’re tired, you’re tired. No need to be overly ambitious with your plans the minute you land.

4 – Stay away from caffeine before a long trip. When you crash, it can interfere with your sleep cycle.

5 – When in doubt, there’s always melatonin.
