4 Jet Lag Cures To Get Your Sleep Back on Track

Conquer the one downside to travelling ASAP

The next time you head overseas, try one of these hacks for beating the dreaded jet lag. You might just be pleasantly surprised…

A flotation tank – First invented in the 1950s, float tanks are having a major moment right now as they are effective for recovery, relaxation and sleep deprivation. They are the perfect way to spend an hour when you first arrive at your destination – advocates say that 60 minutes in a float tank is the equivalent of eight hours’ sleep!

Grounding – Another major trend is ‘earthing’ or grounding, which is literally the act of putting your bare feet on earth, grass, sand, gravel. Why? Well, apparently we can absorb the gentle electrical currents of the earth through our skin. Grounding has some serious scientific backing as well. In terms of jet lag, grounding yourself could help with adjusting to the new time zone as well as improving your sleep.

Get active – A no-brainer, but one that many people forget. Instead of rushing off to down a pint or falling flat on your face in bed, it’s been proven that exercise can help relieve the symptoms of jet lag. So take the time to go for a run, or workout in the hotel gym or even book in for a HIIT fitness class (like Soul Cycle or Barry’s Bootcamp) as soon as you arrive.

Melatonin tablets – Melatonin is a hormone which helps regulate our natural sleep-wake cycle. By taking tablets at specific times when you travel, you can help your circadian clock adjust to the new time zone. Just make sure you take the right dose and the correct pills for jet lag use.
