How to get over jet lag: Set off well-rested and nap on your flight.

Crossing multiple time zones interrupts our circadian rhythms, which regulate sleep patterns. The general rule is that the more zones crossed, the more intense and long-lasting sleep disturbance and feelings of fatigue are likely to be; adjusting to the new time is thought to take one day per zone crossed.

To try and minimise disruption to your travels, follow these tips to aid a speedier adjustment on arrival, and when you return home.
