- Adjust your schedule according to new time zone
Start functioning according to your new time zone days in advance of your travel. This way you can easily adapt to the changes in your circadian rhythms once you reach to your desired destination. It is always a good idea to check travel blogs sharing experiences of travelers about how they dealt with their jet lags.
- Prepare for new time zone while in flight
Adjust your clock according to new time during the flight. This has a psychological effect of preparing yourself according to the new time zone even before you reach the new destination.
- Stay hydrated throughout the flight
This might be a bit challenging especially during Ramzan. However, having a healthy Sehri during your travel usually helps to stay hydrated throughout your journey which in return helps you to easily adjust to new circadian rhythms.
- Reach your destination early
If you have to attend any event at your destination, try to arrive a few days early so that your mind and body can adjust to the new time zones.
- Minimize sleep distractions
Most often the travelers face insomnia due to time zone differences. It is therefore recommended to minimize any sleep distractions during the initial days of reaching your destination. In addition, the intake of high carb or fatty diet close to bedtime should be avoided as it can exacerbate sleep distractions.
