That Awful & Sometimes Unavoidable Thing Called Jet Lag & How To Beat It!

• Drink lots and lots of water before, after and during your flight. • Try to get some sleep on the plane. Bring your pillow, wear an eye mask or earplugs if you have to. • Don’t eat too much before or during flying – but also don’t eat too little! • Avoid caffeine... cut out the coffee, tea and soda. • Avoid drinking alcohol beforehand or during – this one is important! • Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate...  flying strips your skin of most of its natural moisturizers so pack a small thing of lotion in your handbag. • Napping – once off the plane resist the urge to fall asleep for hours.  You want to get your body adjusted to its new time zone.  Instead take a short nap – no longer than 30 min! • Exercise or go for a long walk before your flight. Remember these tips and you’ll be well on your way to avoiding jet lag and enjoying your vacation!
