4 Ways To Minimize Jet Lag During Holiday Travel for Better Sleep

4 Ways To Minimize Jet Lag During Holiday Travel for Better Sleep
Traveling during the holidays can really be tough on your body. The best way to get your holiday back on track, just after heavy travel, is to minimize the effects of jet lag. In order to wake up fresh, merry and bright this holiday season you need to simply get better sleep.

Stay Up On Local Time
Set your watch to the time zone you are traveling to the moment you get on the plane. This will get you thinking on the same time of day as your destination. You’ll want to stay up until your normal bedtime in the local time, too. This will help acclimate your body and sleep pattern to your new time.

Drink lots of water. When you are dehydrated you are prone to headaches, and more likely to be stressed and irritable; this can cause you to overeat. If you do need an alcoholic drink try not to go overboard; this can cause dehydration and fatigue. Drink one glass of water per alcoholic drink, and you’ll sleep better when you get to your destination.

Cool Down For Bedtime
Close the curtains or blinds and turn on the air conditioner or fan. If you need a special pillow or blanket to sleep comfortably, be sure to bring it with you! This will help you keep bedtime cool and cozy.

Practice Healthy Habits
During the holiday season our normal healthy habits can go out the window. Overindulging on food and alcohol can affect your sleep. Try to balance all that holiday cheer with a few healthy meals throughout the day. Take a walk or do some light yoga to stretch it all out.

No matter how far you travel, these tips will help you get a better night’s sleep and ditch the jet lag the first few days you arrive.
