How can you stop jet lag?


I live in Texas, and I just came back form the Philippines. I'd like to know if there should be any tips on how to reduce it quickly. Right now it's 1 am and I still feel kind of wide awake. I'd like to know what to do, sleeping would work , but it might take some things. Plus I'm thinking of taking melatonin, but I'm afraid if it might make it worse, plus I am trying hard to sleep. So far a few yawns come about but other than that I dunno.

How do I get over my jet lag quickly?


Yesterday I came back from New York, where it's 6 hours earlier than here in europe.
I went to sleep at midnight, european time, and just woke up at 3:30 pm!
How do I get to sleep at a normal hour tonight, if I just woke up?
Any tips appreciated!

P.s. I won't take any sleeping pills!
----------

Nothing you can do really, just try and go to bed at your normal hour, read a boring book and have a drink of Horlicks. After a few day back home you should feel normal again.  (+ info)

Hopped multiple time zones, horrible jet lag?


I traveled from Chicago- Tokyo over the North pole and crossed the international date line. From Tokyo, I took a flight to Singapore. From Singapore, I arrived in India, all in the span of 30 hours. I have been sleeping at odd times ever since, feeling woozy, and my entire schedule has been thrown out of gear. How do I get over this horrible jet lag, and how long do you think I need to adjust?
----------

Be active. If you have things to do, it is a lot easier to stay awake than when you're bored or just resting. Run errands that make you go outside. Being in the sunlight helps your body to acclimatise faster, and it also helps when you feel productive, rather than just lazing around. Set yourself reasonable goals as to what time to sleep/wake up, and increase them daily. I fly from Canada to Singapore and back, and it usually takes me about a week to get over, sometimes less.  (+ info)

How do I get rid of my jet lag? I travelled from Chicago to Saudi Arabia for a total of 13 hours?


it is now 4:30 a.m. here in Saudi Arabia and still i can't sleep
----------

I dont know but I had the same problem when I went to Israel. I didnt really have too much of a problem going there. but when I got back home to New York thats when I had the problem. To tell the truth I still have the jet lag a little and the trip was a month ago. But I can assure you yours should go away faster, its taking so long with me because I already had a messed up body clock to begin with.  (+ info)

Does jet lag effect ovulation or period?


I did a lot of travelling over the holidays. Spain to England to Canada to the US and back to Spain (over 25 days) I got my period 2 days before I left. I am wondering if all the time changes would delay ovulation or cause my next period (due tomorrow) to be late? Thanks!

over all the traveling ive done it has never messed me up  (+ info)

what is the best way to prevent jet lag?


I travel a lot and its a hell of a problem
----------

Drink lots of fluids (lots of water), get as much sleep as you can, when you can, even when you're not tired. Hope I didn't state the obvious...
Oh, and if you're really sleepy, make sure you eat well. I've heard from a lot of war veterans that you either have to eat a lot if you're tired, or sleep a lot if you're starving, you can't deprive yourself of both.  (+ info)

Any tips to help me beat jet-lag?


I'm traveling from Belgium to Virginia to visit family (we live overseas because my husband is in the military). It's a 6 hour time difference and we'll be there for 10 days. Jet lag usually hits me pretty hard and it takes me a week or more to adjust. Anyone care to share some tips on beating it?
----------

I found a few web sites that may help. Though in my experience, I try to adjust to the new time zone before the flight, adjusting meals and the sleep cycle - if possible.

Have a safe flight.

Anybody use the homeopathic No Jet Lag pills? Do they work? I haven't had much luck w/ homeopathy, but may try?


Or do you all have any other good jet lag help? How do you do with melatonin?
----------

I'd skip the melatonin or only use it once. Synthetic melatonin is all you find and frankly, it messes people up with prolonged usage.

YOu have nothing to loose but cash by trying the homeopathic remedy. I have never tried it though.

Staying hydrated is the best way I have found to curb jet lag.  (+ info)

How do i get over jet-lag?


About a week ago i got back from traveling around America, and now i am in England. There is an 8 hour time difference. So at the moment I'm finding it really hard to get to sleep, i don't fall asleep until about 3 am. I go back to school in a week so i need to get back into the routine of going to bed at about 10pm and waking up at 6am. Please help?
----------

Set your alarm for 8 am and get up and don't sleep during the day. Two days from now set it at 7 am for 2 days and follow the same routine. By the end of the week you should be back to 6 am.  (+ info)

We returned a week ago from a 32 day trip to Australia and my 5 month old can't kick the jet lag. Help?


There is a 14 hour time difference, and although my husband and I could probably sleep at night, she is wide awake at about midnight until at least 3 or 4 in the morning. It doesn't seem to get better each day, as people told us it would. We're exhausted!
----------

The human eye (retina) is a key component in programming an individuals sleep clock. Sleep time is absolute darkness and awake time is bright sunlight. Ensure your infants room is flooded with bright sunlight at wake up time, during naps,and her eyelids are bathed in light. If the day is cloudy, turn on the overhead light. When you want her to sleep for night time, don't let any light at all approach her eyelids. This experiment may change her inner clock. Her food consumption must have changed as well at different times of the 24 hour clock. The quantity of nourishment must return to what it was before Australia to match the amount she received at the same time of day before.  (+ info)
