Although jet lag can not be cured there are a few things
that you can do yourself to reduce the symptoms. Here are
some tips to help you before, during and after your flight.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine just before and during your flight.
Reset your watch to the time zone that you are traveling to.
Create as dark an environment on the plane as possible.
Use eyeshades and ear plugs to help block out the in flight
distractions and convince your body that it is dark.
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Get plenty of rest before
your flight. Sleep during the flight if you can. Walk around,
massage your lower legs and ankles, stand for about 10 minutes
at a time. Drink plenty of water.
If you arrive in the morning plan to stay awake. If possible
try to wait until the local bedtime to sleep. You will sleep
better and will be less likely to suffer insomnia than if
you take a nap upon arriving.
When you arrive back home don`t go straight back to work
take at least a day off to get plenty of rest.
