Travel & Jet Lag: Tips for Adjusting Your Sleep Schedule

pure parima adjusting tips for jet lag

Traveling to new and exciting destinations can be a thrilling experience, but dealing with jet lag can quickly dampen the excitement. Jet lag occurs when your internal body clock is out of sync with the time zone of your destination, leading to fatigue, insomnia, and overall discomfort. However, there are several strategies you can employ to help adjust your sleep schedule and minimize the effects of jet lag.

Stay Hydrated & Avoid Heavy Meals

Dehydration can exacerbate jet lag symptoms, so drink plenty of water before, during, and after your flight. Limit caffeine and alcohol intake, as they can dehydrate your body. Large, heavy meals can disrupt your sleep. Opt for lighter, well-balanced meals before bedtime to improve the quality of your sleep.

Natural Light Exposure

Sunlight is a powerful regulator of your body's internal clock. Spend time outdoors during the day, especially in the morning, to help your body adapt to the new time zone. If you are indoors, try letting a decent amount of light in through the window as this will enhance your mood and get your body used to the time change. 

Naps with Caution

Short naps (20-30 minutes) can provide a quick energy boost, but avoid long naps during the day, as they can interfere with your ability to sleep at night. Try setting an alarm with a gentle sound so you can ease your body back into your normal sleep routine.

Sleep in Quality Bedding

Regaining your energy in the right bedding is important as it determines how well of a sleep you will get. Choose durable, quality sheets like Egyptian cotton sheets and duvet covers to ensure all-night comfort and a refreshing rest. Take a look at our Yalda collection, our most popular collection, which provides comfort and luxury through a sophisticated double-hem stitch and soft, smooth sateen. Or perhaps you are a hot sleeper - opt for Ultra Percale as this weave results in a cooler, crisper finish.
