How to beat Jet Lag & stay Fit?
If you decide to cross the Atlantic or to visit your family in Europe or elsewhere, in addition to the exciting adventure over 10 – 12 hours are waiting for you in a cabin with dry air, change of time zones and high speed. These stressful conditions for the body can lead to a jet lag:
Drink Plenty of Water
Traveling means dehydrating – so you need to drink more water to stay hydrated and beat jet lag. Try to drink closer to 12-16 ounces of water each hour of your flight (nearly a full water bottle).
Try to Eliminate Processed Sugars and Airplane Food
It’s easy to give in to unhealthy food options on an airplane, but if you’re hoping to hop off the plane feeling refreshed and energized, then you’ll need to have a healthy eating plan. The best airplane food comes from your own kitchen. Nice options are nuts, dried fruit, and baby carrots. Packing your own lunch is the smartest option, if you need help don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and order your personal Travel Box.
Eat or Drink Circumin
Curcumin – which is found in turmeric and curries – is a very strong antioxidant which helps tremendously when taken on an empty stomach both before and after flying. It is a potent brain anti-inflammatory and may also boost testosterone and growth hormone. Try our Turmeric Boost as a before you take off to the airport.
Multiple studies have shown that exercise can regulate circadian rhythms – but this doesn’t mean you have to do a monster workout when you get to your destination, a short workout will revitalize your numb muscles after the flight, and give you more energy during the following days. If you’re not the sporty type, go for a walk and explore the city you just landed in.
Once you’re in the air, sleep as much as possible. If you can sleep on the plane—even for a few hours—it makes a big difference. Earplugs and an eye mask will help.
