Jet lagged? Fatigue after travel is not uncommon. Whether your spending a few hours on a plane, or in a car, there is sure to be slight readjustment period when it comes to putting your feet back on solid ground.
What is jet lag? While jet lag is the blanket term & there is most often a myriad of symptoms associated with it. It is combination of travel-related physical and emotional stress, sleep deprivation + the biological effect of your circadian rhythm being altered. They say, for each time zone crossed it takes one full day to adjust.
Here are a few tips to help you lessen the jet lag side-effect:
1. Don’t drink too much coffee! Excess caffiene can overload your nervous system and contribute to insomnia.
2. Sleeping enroute, avoid this unless it coincides with nighttime at your destination.
3. Alcohol: remember alcohol is a depressant and be mindful of drinking large amounts while enroute to your destination.
4. Look for opportunities to ‘reset’! Recharge with a workout, massage & focus on good nutrition and sleep patterns.
Many safe travels & many safe returns!
