Jet lag occurs when the body has trouble adjusting to travel across time zones.
Follow these recommendations to minimize symptoms:
Get plenty of sleep before you leave.
Avoid alcohol consumption right before, during, and right after your flight.
Eat healthy, well-balanced meals and healthy portion sizes.
Get plenty of exercise during your trip.
If you take sleep medication, use it only for a few days.
Follow the local schedule of your new time zone, not the old one.
