TRAVEL ADVICE:

How to deal with jet lag - Jet lag on long-haul flights - how to beat it? Before flying, stay up later or go to bed earlier for 2-3 days before your trip to help minimise the time difference shock on landing. Drink only water on flights, and drink or pack some electrolytes prior to long-haul flights. Try to get into the new time zone on the flight, by using the entertainment system on board. When you arrive; if it's morning, don't sleep but keep active all day. This guarantees you'll sleep that night and avoid sleeping in the following day. Repeat this process for 2-3 days and drink lots of water!
