It’s no secret that traveling drains you. Especially when you are going long distances.
The Science Behind The Lag
According to the MayoClinic “jet lag” is caused by numerous factors including:
- Cabin atmosphere
- Sunlight or lack thereof
- Circadian Rhythm
Staying Ahead of the Game
believe it or not, dehydration is all too common on long-distance travel. Here are some quick tips to stay ahead of the game:
- Stay Hydrated: Bring your own reusable water bottle. I always travel with my 32oz Hydro Flask. They are great to have. Most airports have refillable stations but at the least, the coffee shops or restaurants have always filled mine for me.
- Stretch: or perform a light exercise before a long flight. This is becoming increasingly popular. Some airports including the Denver International airport contain Yoga Studios.
- Moisturize (specifically facial): Have you noticed a difference in your skin after landing from a long flight? Consider applying a deep moisturizing treatment before your flight to assist in skins hydration.
- Victimize to Optimize: If you know you will be missing some of your vitamins that are normally consumed through food, it may be a wise choice to pack essential vitamins.
