Have you ever found it hard to get your sleep after hours of tedious traveling? Have you sometimes felt dizzy after a long flight? If yes, the chances are that you may be suffering from ‘desynchronosis’ or jet lag, to put it in layman’s terms. Jet lag is a physical condition, usually triggered when the body’s inner clock is not in tune with the time zone you are currently in. It affects most travelers and even regular fliers like flight attendants and pilots. As you travel to new places, the altitude and pressure changes. Your body may at times, find it difficult to fine-tune itself to its new surroundings, with the result that your system goes haywire. Long-haul flying can be exhausting. Uneasiness like fatigue, disorientation, irritability, swollen limbs and eyes, headaches, cold-like symptoms, irregular bowels, headaches, and poor sleep may just add to your plight. Dehydration, unfamiliar foods, cramped spaces, recycled air, lack of sleep, uncomfortable clothes, continual low-level noise, connections that disrupt sleep, and such other factors add to the misery of jet lag. This can even make you feel jet lagged when you're just a little beat up. However, if you want to attend to your business or enjoy the vacation time, after getting down from the plane, it is important to get over jet lag. In this relation, the remedies given below will surely come to your rescue.
