How to overcome jet lag

The jet lag It is a very common disease that affects millions of travelers around the world and that occurs when you make a very long trip through which you arrive in a country that has a time zone that is very different from yours. This means that when it is night for your body, for example, in the country where you are, it is the morning of the following day or noon of the same day.

The jet lag symptoms They do not always occur at the same time and not everyone suffers from them, but the most common are tiredness, confusion, irritability and in some cases memory loss. In order to overcome or avoid jet lag there are a few things you can do, take note:

- Try to adapt to the schedule you will have at destination, even a couple of days before traveling. Set the clock at that time and, as far as possible, live from two days before the trip based on that so as not to "waste time" when you are on vacation.

- It is very important that you sleep only at night, either on the plane or at destination. If you arrive and it is in the afternoon, although for your body it is at night, do not go to bed until it is time to do it, otherwise you will drag the schedule and you will not adapt to the new one.

- Try to hydrate yourself often, both during the trip and at destination. Drink a lot of water throughout the day since that, although it seems impossible, helps you combat the effects of jet lag.

It may seem silly but jet lag can affect your body a lot and can spoil your vacation.
