1. How To Avoid Jet Lag
There is a product I’ve used for years called “No JetLag”. It’s made in New Zealand and can be purchased through Magellan’s (travel supply company like Travel Smith). I used to buy it at Trader Joe’s in CA but they don’t carry it any longer.
No JetLag is a homeopathic product… take 1 tablet 1 hour before departure & every 2 hours while flying & 1 more 1 hour or so after landing. I’m usually pretty much right on local time as far as being ready to go to sleep, eat and so forth. I don’t exactly feel like I’ve had 8 hours of the greatest sleep ever but certainly not waking up at weird hours and so forth. Another symptom I still feel as part of jet-lag is sort of a “heavy, tired body” feeling, like I’ve done a lot of extra yard work, lifting or whatever, which I guess I have hauling luggage etc… but that feeling is minimal.
So give No JetLag a try.
