Avoid the dreaded jet lag

Monday, August 26, 2013 5:38:49 PM

There's a good chance that you will be taking off to a different time zone when traveling for work. In order to ensure that you're in tip-top shape when you take your corporate car rental to the big meeting, follow these tips to avoid jet lag:

Ahead of time
Several days before your travel plans begin, be sure that get your internal clock adjusted to the time zone you'll be visiting. You can do so by shifting your eating and sleeping schedules little by little each day. This way, once you land at your destination, it will be easier to transition directly to the local time. Another great way to help yourself avoid jet lag is to select overnight flights. This will allow you to catch up on sleep in the air so that you're well-rested when you arrive.

While you're there
Once your plane touches down, you can get yourself re-energized by moving around. Since it may look goofy to do jumping jacks at the airport, wait until you've picked up your car rental and arrived at the accommodations. If there's a gym provided, head on over for a round on the treadmill. If necessary, you can also take melatonin supplements to help you function better at the corporate meeting.
