How to Deal with Jet Lag

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Aug 11, 2015 11:10:00 AM


Planning for jet lag during your big trip is just as important as packing the right things and double-checking hotel reservations.

The wide-ranging effects of jet lag, which is little more than the disruption of a person’s internal body clock caused by flying through time zones, can be reduced by planning ahead. Easing the fatigue and disorientation of jet lag is well worth the effort if you want to start your business trip or vacation with energy and focus.

A few tips to make jet lag more tolerable:

  • Before departing, slowly adjust your sleep patterns to reflect what you will experience on your visit. Completely altering your schedule before you leave may not be practical, but even a slight change can help.
  • Take melatonin. This non-prescription hormone can help regulate sleep cycles. Melatonin doesn’t eliminate jet lag, but can reduce its severity. Follow instructions on when to take a dose for optimal results.
  • During flights, drink plenty of water, try to sleep, and get out of your seat to walk the aisle periodically. Cabin air at 35,000 is dehydrating, so limit the amount of alcohol, caffeine and soda you drink. When you are in the air, change your watch to the time of your destination - it’s psychological, but can still help you adjust.
  • Exposure to sunlight has also been found to lessen jet lag. Don’t spend long periods indoors - go outside once in awhile.

The sooner you arrive at your destination, the sooner you can overcome jet lag. One benefit of flying charters with Cirrus Aviation is that our direct flights avoid layovers, which only delay synchronizing your sleep cycle.
