Are You Suffering from Jetlag? Here are a Few Tips That Can Put a Spring in Your Step!
Hydrate yourself well and eat light for a day or two before you take a long flight to ensure that you arrive at your destination fabulously fresh.

* Hydrate and eat lightly for a day or two before you travel. Part of that horrible jetlagged feeling is caused by water retention from sitting down too long. Walk around the cabin every hour if possible. That way your feet won't swell and you'll still fit your clothes when you land.

* A few days before you fly, try switching your bedtime closer to your new time zone. For a long haul, take evening flights so that you can have a nap in the afternoon.

* Don't take medication to help you sleep on the plane. It may seem like a good idea, but you run the risk of rebound insomnia the next night.

* Take a good book. Reading takes more effort than watching the in-flight movies and you'll get a better quality of sleep on board when you're more tired.

* Take advantage of the in-flight hospitality. Having said that, try to moderate the wine. It goes to your head more quickly in the air and you don't want to arrive with a hangover. Eat a full meal at the local lunch or dinnertime. Your body will adjust much more quickly. One of the worst parts of jetlag is waking up hungry in the small hours of the morning.
