Make Jet Lag Easier To Deal With Using This Unusual Tip
There are plenty of tips on combating jet lag, but there isn't any way to completely get rid of the symptoms. However, with proper planning, you can use jet lag to your advantage.
If you're traveling east, consider the time difference between your city and your chosen destination, then plan your schedule accordingly so that you can embrace jet lag.
For example, if you're a New Yorker traveling to London and you're used to waking up at 8 a.m. at home, your body will want to sleep in until 1 p.m.
Instead of forcing yourself to wake up at 8 a.m. London time, stack your itinerary with afternoon and evening activities and give yourself time to sleep in for the first few days.
When you travel west, you will gain time. You'll arrive early but may start feeling sleepy by the early evening, so add a buffer day before any late-night festivities.
Stack your schedule with plenty of morning activities. If you rouse before your alarm, you can use the extra time to squeeze in a workout or take a relaxing morning walk.
