Tips on how to conquer jet-lag during the holiday rush
Published: 12/01/09 Topics: Comments: -
Unfortunately jet-lag is unavoidable, but you can try a few simple tips to make it less of a lag on your trip:
1) A couple of days before you travel, try going to bed earlier if you are traveling East and later if you are traveling West.
2) Avoid eating a big meal before traveling. The lower air pressure in the cabin can mean you get bloated more easily. Avoid typically "gassy" foods for the same reason. Fellow passengers will thank you! :)
3) Drink lots of water during the flight. The dry air inside an aircraft causes dehydration.
4) Try to adjust your mealtimes and bedtime to the local clock immediately on arrival – even if you want pancakes when the chicken is being served.
