How do you become jet lagged?

Jet lag occurs when your body's internal clock, or circadian rhythm, is disrupted due to crossing multiple time zones rapidly. This disrupts your sleep-wake cycle, as well as other bodily functions tied to the time of day, such as hunger and hormone regulation. Factors contributing to jet lag include the direction of travel (eastward or westward), the number of time zones crossed, and individual differences in susceptibility.

How do you control jet lag?

  1. Gradually adjust your sleep schedule a few days before departure.
  2. Stay hydrated before, during, and after the flight.
  3. During the flight, adjust your watch to the destination time zone.
  4. Get exposure to natural sunlight upon arrival to help reset your body clock.
  5. Avoid heavy meals and alcohol, which can disrupt sleep.
  6. Consider using over the counter or prescription medications for short-term relief, if advised by a healthcare professional.
  7. Allow time for rest and recovery upon arrival, if possible.
