Described as ‘a sleep disorder that can affect those who travel quickly across multiple time zones’, jet lag is everyone’s nightmare. Owner of Travel Expert in Durban, Claude David, who has travelled to more than 50 countries, says it is important for travellers to get their mind in sync with the different time zones.
Here are some tips on how to deal with jet lag:
Before your flight
With all the excitement and nerves of travelling to a new destination, its easy to lose sleep. Always make sure that you have at least 8 hours of rest before your flight. This will help you be alert and assist with the transition of the time zones.
