When I used to fly from Los Angeles to New York on a regular basis, I was always looking for a jet lag cure.
I would take the “red-eye” headed to New York and sleep on the way with a bit of melatonin.
That seemed to work well for me the first day, but after a day or so I always found body wanting to continue with Los Angeles time… Waking up at 11am and going to sleep at 3am, which on the West Coast would be waking up at 8am and going to bed at midnight.
My Favorite Jet Lag Cure
I didn’t learn about this jet lag cure until a few weeks before my trip to Italy this year.
I was skeptical that it would work, but it really did the trick. I was fine after one night’s sleep in both directions, and I even took a trip the day after arriving home that set me back another three hours and, again, I was fine.
My neighbor did not know about this jet lag cure when she went to Italy and when I met up with her several days after she returned from her trip, she said that she still had not adjusted from being on the other side of the planet.
I mentioned that I didn’t experience any jet lag at all and she said that she wishes that that this cure is one of the tips I should have mentioned on the recording I made for her for her trip to Italy (which ended up being the podcast number TBP 0001 of Travel Better Podcasts).
That is why I made this post one of the first ones after launching. If you jump time zones and need a jet lag cure, and only read a few posts on this site, I hope this is one of them. It will help you a lot.
