Seven tips to help you avoid jet lag on your next long haul trip
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.
