Re: Tips for Fighting Jet Lag
I can't sleep on planes to save my life, unfortunately, so I've weighed the idea of taking a sleeping pill, particularly when I'm headed east across the Atlantic. Haven't tried it yet though -- I'm not a big fan of taking medications.
So what I do instead is try to start shifting to the new time zone a day or two beforehand...go to bed earlier (or later, depending). and once I get to the new place, I try to force myself into the new schedule right away rather than napping or whatever.
Oh, and obviously I do all the standard "take care of your body" stuff like drinking lots of water, moving around on the plane and eating healthy.
