Traveling to far off lands would be a lot more fun if not for the jet lag. Luckily, there are natural remedies for jet lag the will help you get back to enjoying your trip much faster.
One of the easiest things you can do is to start living in your time zone before you leave for your trip by going to bed a bit earlier or later each night, depending on which direction you are traveling.
Drinking plenty of water and sleeping on the plane will also help you to feel more rested when you arrive. If you have trouble sleeping on planes, you can take melatonin, a natural supplement, a few hours before you want to go to sleep.
It is also important to try and arrive earlier in the day. Though you may feel tired, arriving earlier in the day will help you adjust better to your new time zone. Don’t take a nap, try and stay up as long as possible, before going to sleep a lit earlier than usual.
In addition to staying up and continuing to drink water when you arrive at your destination, try to get outdoors and expose your body to sunlight. This will help regulate your body’s internal clock.
