Jet Lag

I haven't a clue if the article is correct. Just trying to help my fellow man (and a few women).

Part of the issue with log travels is airport stress, airplane takeoff stress which releases adrenalin, practicaly no humidity on the plane, a big dose of cosmic radiation while airborne, lack of movement for 15 or more hours, landing stress, arrival stress.

Youre much better off on train or a ship if possible.

This might be helpful to adjust to crossing time zones

Set your time piece to the correct destination time before leaving. Sleep on the plane or at the destination using your appropriate destination time. Use coffee or other stimulant at the destination wake up time and use an Rx sleep aid on the plane or at destination to sleep at the appropriate destination time.Instead of days you can make the adjustment in one day.

I have a hard time sleeping on planes, but sleep whenever I can on them.

Once I'm at my destination, I stay awake past my normal time to sleep (back home time) and I stay awake until the local time is time to go to bed (even if it's the next day). It works well and I adjust immediately.

The worst time switch for that method is a 12 hour timezone change and you arrive at night locally when people are about to sleep. Then I'd have to stay up for 24 hours since it would be like 9AM for me physically. I'm already used to working 24 hour shifts for work without breaks so it's not too bad.
