Jet Lag Travel Tips

Did you know you can do a few things to help beat your jet lag symptoms? Airline flight attendants and other frequent flyers offer solutions that help them. See if some of these will work for you.

Eat healthy before you travel. No huge burgers and fries just before you board a transatlantic flight!

Exercise always helps. Try to increase your exercise routine for a few weeks prior to a long flight. And, exercise while on that long flight. Walk around, move your legs and ankles, or do some deep knee bends.

Alcohol and caffeine may cause dehydration or disrupt your sleep patterns.

Wear loose clothes and shoes. Take your shoes off and put on some slippers if that helps.

Adjust to your destination's time zone as quickly as possible.

These are a few of my favorites that work for me. Let me know what works for you.
