Overcome Jet Lag: The Solution To Your Biggest Travel Problem
Anyone who has traveled across time zones knows the foggy, headachy, dragging feeling of jet lag. It isn’t very good and can interfere with productivity and enjoyment on any trip.
London jet lag
Especially if you have a somewhat limited time say, a week in London jet lag can cut into the fun of half your trip!
Jay Olson, a psychology instructor at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, conducted research on jet lag.
As a result, he developed Jet Lag Rooster, a free app designed to assist travelers in gradually aligning their waking and sleeping patterns with their body’s natural circadian rhythms. Its purpose is to minimize or eliminate jet lag symptoms effectively.
The setup for Jet Lag Rooster is straightforward. You input your flight itinerary and normal sleeping pattern, specifying whether you want to begin adjusting your schedule before or after arrival. Starting before departure can be particularly beneficial for long east-traveling journeys. The app then generates a printable schedule with hour-by-hour guidelines to follow.
Jet Lag Rooster
Jet Lag Rooster uses a calculator similar to the Mayo Clinic’s sleep center to help the body naturally adjust to time changes and avoid jet lag fatigue.
When JLR prompts you to “seek light,” ideally that means sunshine, even on a cloudy day but if it’s the middle of the night in your destination city, you can also use a travel version of a full-spectrum lamp.
Likewise, if “avoiding light” is impossible, you can don sunglasses that block the blue light that has the most potent effect on the body’s clock.
If the time change is drastic, adjusting circadian rhythms can take days. It can be a little inconvenient upon arrival to, say, avoid sunlight after 2 pm in Tokyo but the reality is that the average person can only adjust their internal clock by an incremental amount of 60 to 90 minutes a day.
Attempting to adjust the body to accommodate a 13-hour time difference cannot be accomplished in one day. That is, after all, what causes jet lag in the first place.
So, does it work? According to the research, it does. And thousands of alert, savvy travelers seem to agree.
