Avoid Jet Lag

Jet lag happens because our body temperature rhythm doesn’t adjust to a new time zone as quickly as we’d like it to. Whenever you travel East, you are forced to sleep when you are not sleepy. Whenever you travel West, you experience feelings of drowisness and tiredness earlier than everyone else.

Proper Hydration

When you fly in a plane for 8 hour, you would lose a lot of water. You may notice that your lips get really dry during a long flight. This is because there’s zero humidity in the plane! And this means that water is literally evaporating out of you as if you were a puddle of cool aid on a hot summer day!

Drink lots of water when you arrive at your new destination and don’t stop drinking throughout the day would immediately hydrate your body. And this would make adjusting to the new time zone much easier for you.

It’s also a good idea to keep a water bottle with you on the plane. The little 100ml packages of water they give you on the plane don’t hydrate you!

Set your schedule in advance

The best strategy for going across several zones is to start changing your sleeping schedule several days in advance to the trip.

For instance, if you are travelling from Los Angeles to Hawaii, begin waking up and sleeping earlier gradually 3 to 4 days in advance, this will minimize the jet lag effect when you arrive at your destination.

Adjust your meals and your light exposure as if you were to be already there and following that schedule.
