For some of us jet-lag can be a serious challenge and even the little three hour flights can get us
quite beat. A friend of mine who came back from China took almost two
weeks to get his body clock back in check. I thought that was longer than usual, but who am I to say?
Anyhow, CNN has a good little read
for those of you who have a hard time sleeping or maybe even getting good sleep after or during a trip. A hint of
lavender, an afternoon nap, or tucking yourself as close to the front of the plane will win you some pleasant
Zzz’s. Also, try using a nightlight or a penlight to navigate your way in the dark instead of flicking
on the light. They note that such disturbs the body’s circadian clock. It all sounds very practical,
but I thought it might help someone.
