Here are 10 Useful Tips To Get Over Jet Lag Quickly ….
1. Get an overnight flight if you can.
First things first: Make it a priority to arrange your travel so you can adjust as effortlessly as possible to a new timezone. The best method is to take an overnight flight so you can get some rest and keep a regularly regular sleep schedule. Take a sleep mask, a chilled-out playlist, and ask for a calming, decaffeinated tea to get you in the mood.
2. Work ahead.
Plan ahead to cut yourself some slack upon your arrival. To stay on schedule and keep from piling on to your holiday time and energy, have your ride from the airport pre-booked and itinerary fully set. If you’re returning to work, make sure you’ve started ahead on whatever tasks are expected of you. Even putting aside 15 minutes per day to work ahead during your trip can cut you hours of slack when you first get home.
Keeping your body limber and loose will help you stay alert and comfortable during your waking hours, plus stretching relieves stress that could add to your exhaustion. Try these beginner yoga poses to start your day with a focused mind and relaxed body.
4. Take your vitamins.
Both vitamin C and vitamin B contribute to immune system health. To protect yourself from catching a virus while you’re sleepless and vulnerable, stock up on these as your body adjusts to its new sleep schedule. Juice carrots, oranges, and ginger for an extra boost!
5. Two strong coffees – no more, no less.
One’s insufficient but three’s a crowd. Avoid being under- or over-jazzed by sticking to the two coffees rule: one in the morning, and one midday, just before a nap if you take one. Avoid all caffeine when you’re three hours or less from your scheduled bedtime.
6. Create a pumped-up playlist.
Maybe you think it’s a cliché, but a round of invigorating and exciting tunes can work wonders for your energy level. Pump up the music while getting ready, listen on your commute to work, or pop your headphones in anytime you start to get drowsy ahead of schedule.
7. Eat well.
Keeping your body nourished keeps your body alert. Sugary and heavy snacks can be especially tempting when you’re desperate to stay energised, and it’s easy to be misled into choosing a sugary snack to liven yourself up. Resist! Invest in your own health by eating light, protein- and vitamin-rich foods that will fuel you without adding sugar crashes to your already lengthy list of excuses to pass out. Also, be sure to eat at appropriate meal times for your new timezone.
8. Take one half-hour power nap halfway through your day.
Don’t fool yourself: The first couple of days spent adjusting to new daylight hours will leave you tired, crabby, and weak. Completely depriving yourself of needed rest to adjust more quickly will only tire you out more. Schedule a short nap into your first couple of days to meet your body’s demand for sleep; this will sate your system better than sleeping in or crashing too early after a long, sleepless day.
9. Get some fresh air.
Even if you’re back in the office or at school, take frequent breaks to get some air and sunlight. Not only does exposing yourself to natural light at regular intervals help your body clock readjust, but avoiding monotony is key to keeping your mind and body alert. Changing the scenery and taking some quality breaths can be a lifesaver!
This should go without saying, but when you’re fatigued, and especially when sleeping it off will hinder you from adjusting to a different timezone, drinking water is key to your health and success. Adhere to the standard intake of 1.5 litres per day for women and 2 litres per day for men.
