2 Essential Health Tips On How To Overcome Jet Lag

An individual’s body clock may get disrupted when encountering different kinds of time zones. This may also result to feeling fatigue -- physically and mentally. Frequent travelers can certainly attest to experiencing getting jet lag after traveling from one destination to the other. So to be able to overcome such distress, take these health tips below to help your body to adapt on both time variances and surroundings.


Keys to fighting jet lag: Rest and Adapt

Traveling long distances may really bring you to experience jet lag, whilst causing you health complications later on. So in order to get over this form of difficulty, make sure to ‘rest’ and to ‘adapt. Rest for a couple of days before doing anything elsewhere. You should also try to make your body to adapt to current sleeping and waking hours in your present location. 

To also help give you a heads up, when you’re journeying off to the west, make sure that you sleep at a later time. But if you’re heading to the east, try to sleep in earlier than your usual bedtime. 

How to further fight jet lag 

There are plenty of ways to fight jet lag. One effective health tip is to drink water 3 times during your flight: before, during and after. This will help keep you hydrated throughout the long haul trip. You should also stay away from alcohol-based drinks, as these would only keep you parched and inebriated. 

Another great health tip is to exercise. You will not be asked to stay confined on your seat for the whole duration of the trip. So instead of just watching movies from your seat, get up and walk inside the aircraft. Stretch those arms and especially your legs to ease off some of the distension. 

How about you? How do you get over your jet lag?

though never pa naman ako na jet lag, i always advise my husband or any family member who experiences this, to slurp on some hot soup and rest afterwards.

Mai Flores said...

I sleep as much as I could though I try to move around the plane also.

Mai Flores said...

very true! whenever we go to australia which is like 8-9 hours in the plane, we opt to walk around the aircraft as everyone is doing that as well for some exercise. i drink a lot of water too! and put facial sheet mask so I feel fresh and not dry during the flight hehe

Mai Flores said...

If I drink lots of water before the flight, then I will have to go to the toilet several times?? Haha.

Mai Flores said...

Of course, in moderation din...hehe!

Mai Flores said...

Oh, I really need this 'coz I'll be taking my first flight ever this coming July! Hahaha

Mai Flores said...

I have never been to any international flight. mostly local so this will be a great way to know how to overcome jetlags!

Mai Flores said...

I have never experienced jet lag because, well, I've never been out as far as Manila (from Visayas) haha but these tips are really handy to those who fly on a regular basis :) great post :)

Mai Flores said...

traveled abroad pero matibay ako sa jet lag Mai hehehe will keep your tips here iba na well-informed,.

Mai Flores said...

Been on a plane only once in my whole life time and for such a short trip so I cannot claim to have experienced jet lag. Great tips here.

Mai Flores said...

I traveled a lot before and i remember I only experienced jet lag once, yung feeling na umuuga uga ka pa kahit matagal ka ng nakalanding. Rest is the best way to overcome it.

Mai Flores said...

Uhm. Does traveling locally via any of the air carries count?

Mai Flores said...

Doing simple stretches can also help overcome jetlog as well as boredom in flight.

Mai Flores said...

Haha of course. With regard to sleeping, I can't really sleep during travels so it's best for me to sleep many hours ahead before going on a plane or bus -- long-drive.

Mai Flores said...

Nice tips... never thought about how rehydrating can help you cope with the Jet Lag. Will absolutely keep that in mind on my next travel.

Mai Flores said...

Great tips you shared here, I hope it is easy for me to do the number 1... rest, because I'm always restless before and during travel, excitement maybe.

Mai Flores said...

Nice one Mai, I've learned something new today. I'll remember your tips, para next flight ko alam ko na gagawin. Just asking, How many hours ba on air para maka-experience ng jetlag?

Mai Flores said...

Thank you Tay, at may napulot kayong bago sa blog ko. Actually, malaki ang chance na maka-experience ka ng jet lag kapag long haul ang flight. Pwede mo siyang ma-experience kung babiyahe ka pa-US or Europe. Yun kasi mahahaba ang travel time.

Mai Flores said...

You hit it, drinking water is probably the most effective way. And of course rest, rest and rest. Thanks for the tips.

Mai Flores said...

Great tips! Which by the way i do the same too. But another in my list is eating vanilla ice cream. It somehow calms me down or something. haha Weird eh? :)

Mai Flores said...

I've tried those long haul flights while on a business trip on an economy seat and the experience is something I wish I wouldn't have to go thru again but its inevitable if we love to visit places. These tips are really handy :)

Mai Flores said...

Thank you for the helpful tips! Hoping that I can use some of these tips in my future travels.

Mai Flores said...

I just printed a copy of this as I felt the need to share this to my sister! =)

Mai Flores said...

Mai Flores said...

very true! walking around the aircraft helps a lot specially to those who's older than us. I do drink a lot of water!

Mai Flores said...

These are helpful tips to share with my friends who often suffer from jet lag. Usually sa short trips, I don't experience it or maybe sanayan lang din.

Mai Flores said...

These are really awesome tips, especially for people who travel a lot and cover a lot of distance. These long trips can really eff up your body clock and sometime you wouldn't even notice it. Thanks for the tips :)

Mai Flores said...

I havent traveled in different time zones as I get arround only in the PH.
But I kind of understand what jet lag is. This is really helpful as I intend to travel abroad soon.
I have an erratic sleeping habit so I think sleeping won't be much of an issue, though I dont I can sleep of before or after a flight due to excitement.

Mai Flores said...

I believe exercising is the best way to get avoid jet lag! Proper rest is a must too.

Mai Flores said...

I haven't experienced legit jet lag yet. But I remember a few years back, when I had 2 packed trips with just a day of rest in between, I felt really tired and was a mess. I'm sure it's even worse for those who travel longer and more frequently.

Mai Flores said...

These tips will really help me if ever I will have long trips. I will make sure to keep this in mind. Thank you so much! :D

Mai Flores said...

I haven't traveled yet to a different timezone but will keep this in mind. Keeping yourself hydrated is the most important thing.

Mai Flores said...

One flying experience that I do wish to experience. Just like what you told me anak, jet lag will take effect during long journeys. From here to Antartica, so sure na maje-jet lag na ako. Just kidding.

Mai Flores said...

Thanks for this tips, this is useful for me specially I'm planning for a trip in Europe next year.

Mai Flores said...

Hope to experience jetlag soon! I think of all the inconveniences, jetlag is the most wanted :D

Mai Flores said...

I don't get to travel out of the countries often kaya wala akong problem. I only travel to other countries every two years :) And hindi masyadong malayo ang mga places na pinupuntahan ko. The time difference is at most 2-4 hours lang..

Mai Flores said...

Cool. I learned something new here. If you're traveling to west, sleep later. For east is earlier.

Mai Flores said...

Ayokong si Mr. G ang taningin. I like answers from you, naglambing lang. But na-curious na naman ako doon sa sllep pattern, Why sleep at a later time when traveling West, and sleep earlier your sleeping time when going East?

Mai Flores said...

How I wish I can apply these tips in the near future. I have yet to conquer my fear of heights before fighting jet lag. Hahaha!!!
