In my humble opinion, this is the BEST way to beat the jet lag drag!! Both my husband and I struggle with jet lag on every trip both going and coming home. We travel so much, that we have made it our life’s mission to beat jet lag without missing 1 moment of our trip. What is the point of traveling if you can’t enjoy it because you are too tired? There are several opinions on how to beat this. Most people will tell you “You have to stay up all day on the day you arrive, go to sleep at 9 pm! You will adjust faster.” To me? That is absolute malarkey!!! When you travel east, for example Europe, you are looking at a 5-6-hour time difference. 99% of the flights to Europe are red eyes (overnight).
