Jet lag can turn even the best travel experience into a tiring ordeal. However, ComfyNorth’s founder Alex Savy is here to help. Leveraging his extensive experience in overcoming jet lag, Savy shares his tried and tested strategies that ensure an invigorating travel experience.
“Jet lag isn’t inevitable,” says Savy. He believes it’s all about adjusting your internal body clock to the new time zone, something achievable with a strategic approach. His first recommendation? “Start adjusting your schedule a few days before departure.”
Savy also swears by the power of light exposure in resetting our internal body clocks. “After arrival, spend as much time as possible outside during daylight hours,” he advises. This natural light exposure can help realign your circadian rhythm with the local time.
Alex Savy advises against consuming heavy meals during the flight. “Eating light can help your body adjust to the new time zone more easily,” he explains. Heavy meals can disrupt your digestion, leading to discomfort and exacerbating the symptoms of jet lag.
