  • When you're flying across time zones, it can take your body a bit of time to adjust. In the meantime, you're graced with unpleasant ailments like fatigue, insomnia, constipation, diarrhea, confusion, and more—enough to send you frantically searching for a jet lag cure! Check out these tips!

  • Prepare your body for the change in time zones. Every week, push your schedule one hour back or forward, depending on where you're going. The more time zones you're flying across, the earlier you'll need to start. This will give your body a chance to gradually adjust to your new time zone

  • Stay hydrated. On the day of your flight, drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration is one of the symptoms of jet lag, and the dry, cabin air on the plane doesn't help. Stay away from any beverages with alcohol or caffeine in them, as the side effects of dehydration can do more harm than good.

  • Set your watch to the time at your destination as soon as you begin your flight. This helps you to mentally prepare for the new time zone.

  • Sleep (or stay awake) like you're already there. If it's daylight at your destination, try to avoid sleeping on the plane.[4] If it's nighttime at your destination when you're on the plane, try to sleep. Use earplugs, eye shades, and turn on the air-conditioning valve!

  • On a long flight, flat bed seats may be worth the upgrade. The quality of your sleep is far superior. If possible of course.

  • Eat like you're already there. Avoid eating airplane food, since it's generally served on a schedule that's consistent with the time zone you're leaving, not the one you're going to.  If you're hungry, snack lightly until you arrive at your destination, and eat during what would be mealtimes there!

  • Once there, Play or exercise, preferably in the sun. If it's daytime at your destination, spend as much time outside as you can. The exposure to sunlight will help your brain adjust to the new time zone.

  • Eat light meals according to your new time zone. Not only is your sleep cycle adjusting, but so is your digestive routine. Large, rich meals will make it all the more difficult for your body to adapt, and symptoms like constipation and diarrhea will put a damper on your vacation.

  • Exercise early in the evening and in the morning. It'll help you get better sleep by tiring you out before going to bed (as long as you exercise a few hours before bed, so that the body has time to calm down) and it'll help make you feel more awake in the morning by getting your blood flowing.

  • Have a protein-rich breakfast the morning after you arrive. It'll help with alertness.

  • Consider taking melatonin. Melatonin is the a hormone your body naturally creates around the time you usually go to bed. So taking it at the time you want to tell your body to go to bed, may help your internal clock to adjust to the new time zone.
