Here Is The Best Way To Deal With Jet Lag

Traveling the world sounds glamorous but there’s another factor put in to play that tends to get overlooked and that’s jet lag. Jet lag basically happens when you’re traveling to a new time zone. You’re not on that time zone so you could be ready for bed when it’s 3 p.m outside! People say to exercise or go out and explore when you’re dealing with jet lag but all you want to do is sleep! So what truly will help you beat jet lag?

Let’s take a look! Hint: You need to get your body moving!


Exercise

When you’re tired, exercising is the last thing on your mind. When you travel, oxygen saturation levels are reduced by being up in the air and exercising is the best way to bring those levels back up. This will help to ease that tired, groggy feeling. So, 30-45 minutes of moderate exercise is the way to go. Whether you hit the elliptical or go for a jog, exercise is the way to go and it will truly help to make you feel better and allow you to get on the right time zone.

If you’re in a new country or it’s starting to get dark be careful about jogging outside! A hotel gym or a cardio workout in your Airbnb is just as good.

So the best way to really beat jet lag? Hit the elliptical or treadmill for 30-45 minutes of cardio and try to go to sleep when it’s dark outside, or when it’s normal for the time zone you’re currently in. The sooner you get on the right time zone, the better you’ll feel.

Tuck.com reports that morning larks are more affected by jet lag then night owls. So are those that consume excessive amounts of caffeine. Jet lag lasts as long as it takes you to get on the correct time zone so you’re going to want to do it sooner rather than later so it doesn’t affect the rest of your trip.

As much as you’re not going to want to exercise, it’ll allow you to get on the right time zone so that you can enjoy the rest of your trip! Plus, you’ll feel awesome after you do it.
