Jet lag symptoms occur when your body clock (which signals when to eat, sleep, and wake up) is out of synch with your environment. The consequences of jet lag can severely affect your quality of life and are hard to shake. When traveling from west to east, it can take your body up to a day for each time zone crossed to adjust to local time. Traveling east to west is easier but still can take a half day per time zone for your body clock to adjust. And, the older you are, the more severe your jet lag may be and the longer it could take to recover.
Stop Jet Lag orchestrates the use of bright light exposure, melatonin supplements, food, caffeine, exercise, and social or interpersonal stimulation by sending the right signals, at the right time, to your brain.
Stop Jet Lag is able to analyze hundreds of possible scenarios and ultimately selects the best timing and anti-jet lag activities for you to follow. Switching your behavior to local time as soon as practical also helps you arrive at your destination alert and 'in-sync' with your surroundings.
You can transition to new time zones quickly and smoothly with simple, but crucial, adjustments to normal routines by identifying:
|Flight departures and arrivals|
|Reset your watch to and begin functioning on your new time zone|
|Sleep or rest at these designated times|
|Keep active, do NOT nap at these designated times|
|Bright Light (preferably sunlight) at these designated times|
|Avoid Bright Light at these designated times|
|Meal times, types and sizes,|
|Optional melatonin supplements recommended at these designated times|
|Be active, light exercise to raise your body temperature at these designated times|
|Consume caffeinated drinks at this time if you are normally a caffeine user|
Unlike other methods of jet lag avoidance, Stop Jet Lag analyzes flight times in relationship to when they occur during your normal routine. This can make a profound difference in successfully adjusting your body clock. We chose the following scenarios to illustrate the optimum times to shift to a new time zone based on a flight itinerary.
If you have booked, you most likely can't change it. But, if you have, Stop Jet Lag will provide the right recommendations.
