Heat Wave Coming -- and Bon Voyage!
Remember to refer to July 12's post on changing time zones: it has some advice about minimizing the effects of jet lag.
I want to wish you all a very nice flight. See you VERY SOON!
On the plane:
o Set your watch to EDT as soon as you board.
o Drink lots of water (not alcohol!)
o Sleep if you can. Consider using earplugs, a neck support pillow, or an eyemask, but avoid using sleeping pills on the plane.
o Walk around the plane as much as possible.
When you arrive:
o Immediately start eating and sleeping according to the new time zone.
o Exercising in the early morning and late afternoon may help re-synchronize your internal clock.
