Travel is great, but jet lag is no fun. What you need is a natural way to lessen the blow or even avoid it altogether. After all, a beautiful European city, a tropical island or a trip into nature is all much better when you have the energy to enjoy it.
Easy and Natural Tips to Beat Jet Lag
Eat protein, fat, and greens: Eat protein, a little fat and greens before and during the flight to keep your blood sugar balanced. This will help you avoid the random boredom cravings and disoriented haze of flight travel. For proteins, go for nuts, sprouted beans, yogurt, goat cheese, and lean meats. For greens, that’s a harder one. So grab a good green powder supplement at your local natural health food or supplement store. They usually have a good amount of chlorella, spirulina, and sea grasses, which provide oxygen for your blood.
Don’t Sleep: If anything, power nap. It’s better to nap and push through it. Consider it a late night, rather than forcing yourself to sleep in a false environment. You’ll get over the hump much faster this way. Having too much light in the room messes with our ability to fall into REM sleep (when we get the most rest). The pituitary gland gets confused, thinks that it’s daytime, and will cause you to wake up halfway, making jet lag more likely.
Drink: Drink water, not alcohol. Stay hydrated before, during and after your flight. A hydrated body is a hydrated brain and a hydrated brain functions far better in challenging situations than a dehydrated one.
Eucalyptus Oil Spray: Eucalyptus oil, a menthol-based plant, is known for increasing blood circulation all over the body, which is especially helpful for the mind. Head to the bathroom and splash your face with some water. Then spray our Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the palms of your hands and breathe in deeply. Do this every time you need a boost. Once you land, head to a sauna, steam room, or hot shower and spray Eucalyptus into the steam and heat. By spraying Eucalyptus oil into heat, your skin, lungs and mental function will be activated, cleansed and boosted.
