I remember seeing tiffany mention recently in a post that she takes an aggressive approach to combatting jetlag. If I’m spending almost 36 hours traveling, and arriving a place that is 10 hours ahead in time zones, what do you think the best approach to fighting jetlag is? The flight leaves at 10:30 my time and arrives +2 days at 11am.
Try to start adjusting to the local time of your destination a day or two before hand. Keeping hydrated but not consuming alcohol also helps. Staying up the night before so that you’re ready to sleep after the first meal on board is also a good idea.
This is an old post but the information is still relevant: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/05/29/tips-for-dealing-with-jet-lag/[/URL]
I knew there was going to be an article hiding here somewhere. I wonder why it wouldn’t pull up when I searched.
You must have some long layovers and/or interesting routing to your destination to take 36 hours! I’m a West Coast person who goes to Europe on business several times a year (9 time zone difference) and my long trips are around 24 hours. More to the point, I make a point to never nap upon arriving during daylight hours at my destination. I gut it out until around 8 or 9 pm and then try to sleep through the night to get in a normal sleep cycle at my destination. It helps to take an OTC sleep aid like Melatonin if you think you might have difficulties. I also try to cat nap on my flights.

You can also Google jetlag site:onemileatatime.boardingarea.com to restrict your search to a specific domain
