How to adjust your sleep in a different time zone: these tips will help you get enough sleep
Travelling to a country with a different time zone is always stressful for the body due to lack of sleep. You can avoid problems if you quickly adjust your biological clock.
In order not to waste time adjusting and get into the pace of the new country, you should give yourself time to sleep and do not forget about alarms. Professor Maureen Baker, former chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners, gave advice in a conversation with the Mirror.
Long-distance flights can disrupt sleep patterns. A broken biological clock is often accompanied by lethargy, headaches, stress, and other unpleasant symptoms that will not allow you to enjoy your trip.
"If you feel drowsy upon arrival, take a nap. Go for a walk during the day, as natural light will help your body clock adjust to the new time zone," Professor Baker advised.
On the first night after the flight, you should set aside time to sleep. If possible, you should go to bed earlier and wake up to an alarm in the morning.
If you travelled east, try to lie down by a window in the morning and avoid bright light in the evening. If you flew to the west, do the opposite - stay under the sun in the evening and avoid it in the morning, the expert advised.
