1. One day per hour
It takes roughly one day to adjust to each hour of time difference; your bowels may need longer
2. Start right
If you start your journey tired and stressed, jet lag will hit
Melatonin is a good natural option for treating jet lag but isn’t readily available in the UK – buy through online pharmacies
4. Go natural
Stimulate your body’s natural melatonin by getting out in the sun
5. Eat wise
Protein-rich meals early in the day help the body produce the hormones needed for activities; a light evening meal with plenty of carbohydrate provides those necessary for sleep
6. Anti-jet lag supplements
Tyrosine and tryptophan supplements can help ease jet lag.
The homeopathic remedy arnica seems to help some travellers. No-Jet-Lag is another homeopathic alternative.
