Can You Prevent Jet Lag?
For those that love to be on the move or love to travel, the effects of Jet Lag may not seem so foreign. This is something that will set in without us even noticing. With that being said, it still makes sure that we feel many things.
Jet Lag is a physical reaction to a rapid change in time zones. It usually affects most travelers. For those that are used to always being on a plane, don’t think it doesn’t apply to you. Even for seasoned travelers like pilots and flight attendants, Jet Lag will make its presence known. For this reason, a lot of people want to figure out if it’s something that can be cured.
Sadly, Jet Lag can’t be cured but there are some steps that you can take before getting on that flight that may help you with the symptoms. Healthline makes sure you know how important it is for you to treat your body right before flying:
- If you’re planning on going somewhere with a big time change, you should give your body time to adjust. This means arriving early to wherever you’re planning on going. This will give your body a chance to adjust and make sure that you’re in the best shape.
- A lot of people think that the best way to get over Jet lag is by staying up the night prior to their flight. This is probably one of the worst things you can do! If you start your trip sleep deprived, it will make the jet lag symptoms a lot worse for you. Make sure you get enough sleep!
- Preparing your body before a flight might be just as important as making sure you feel better after. Before you decide to hop on the flight, it’s always a good idea to adjust your schedule before you leave. It’s good to understand the times of how things work in your destination because this can help adjust your body. Make sure you eat meals at the time you would be eating there. More importantly, make sure you’re switching your circadian rhythm.
- Your circadian rhythm is your body clock. It’s important to sleep when it’s nighttime at your location and wake up when the sun might be out there. This will help make the transition easier when you land.
- One of the last things you can do is to drink water! This is a given for anything but jet lag is known to make you very dehydrated. Staying hydrated before, during, and after your flight will ensure that you counteract the dehydrating effects of dry cabin air.
While these tips may help prevent the effects of Jet Lag, everybody’s body works differently. If changing your schedule before your flight isn’t an option, there is a great way to make sure you target those symptoms. That’s by making your way down to the IV Lounge.
