Once your body eventually adapts to the time at your destination, the Jet Lag symptoms usually subside but this may take a few days.

There are some tips that may help reduce the effects of jet lag:

  • Adapting your schedule to the new time zone is critical- e.g. not sleeping until it is reasonably close to your usual bedtime in the new time zone
  • Adapting your sleep schedule prior to travel may help i.e. sleeping towards your destination time zone times
  • Try not to oversleep- set alarms accordingly to prevent this
  • Exposure to daytime in your destination can help to reset your internal body clock
  • Limit your caffeine and alcohol intake during travel
  • Staying well hydrated
  • Medication (Melatonin) may help
