Jet Lag

Jet lag is a collection of symptoms that occur while a body clock adjust to a new time zone while traveling which often disrupts normal sleep-wake cycle. As a result, your internal body clock wakes you during the night and makes you sleepy during the day until getting used to the local time. Others symptoms of jet lag may include poor concentration, loss of appetite, headache, tiredness, and diarrhea or constipation. Most people begin to feel the effects of jet lag only after crossing three or more time zones. Traveling from east to west extends the day and is usually easier on the body than traveling from west to east, which shortens the day. Although jet lag usually lasts no more than a few days, natural remedies reduce its effects and adjust quickly to the new time zone.

Symptoms

  • Disturbed sleep like early waking or excessive sleepiness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating or functioning at your usual level
  • Stomach problems, constipation or diarrhea
  • A general feeling of not being well
  • Muscle soreness

Home Remedies

  • Ginger: An hour before flying, swallow 2 capsules (00 size) of ginger, with a cup of water.
  • Massage: When you reached your destination, rub a little warm sesame oil on your scalp and on soles of your feet.
  • Milk: Drink 1 cup of hot milk with a pinch each of nutmeg and ginger.

Do's

  • If possible, fly during the day. You are less likely to feel jet lag if you arrive at your destination in the evening and then stay awake until bedtime.
  • Get plenty of rest before departure. Take at least 8 hours sleep a night in the week before traveling.
  • Get used to the new time zone by setting your watch to your destination time as soon as you board the plane. If possible, plan your meals and sleep times around this time during the flight. If need to sleep in the flight, listen to soft music, use earplugs, wear sleep mask, and use a neck pillow. If need to awake, be active: get up and walk around the plane every hour, talk to your neighbor, read, or watch the in-flight entertainment.
  • Drink plenty of water or fruit juice before and during the flight to prevent dehydration.
  • As soon as arrived at destination, adopt a local eating, waking, and sleeping times. Take a walk in daylight to help your body clock adjust.
