Avoiding Jet Lag

August 18, 2008 at 8:28 pm 1 comment

In my recent travels, I have come to find a schedule that works reasonably well to combat jet-lag when making the passage between the East and West coast, and vice-versa.

I like to take an evening flight when traveling west, getting in around 10 local time or 1 EST. This makes sleeping in until 6:30 or 7 AM PST an easier task. The first day on PST may feel a little longer than usual, but I find myself able to go to bed at my regular time the first night.

Flying east is a little trickier. I’ve become a fan of the 9:40 PST flight that lands somewhere between 4:30 and 5:30 EST. By sleeping on the plan, although only for maybe four hours, you can sleep another four when you get home and it’s only 10 AM EST. The first day back is probably a little more tiring than most, but you end up going to bed on EST pretty easily after not having a great nights sleep the night before.
