I only had jet lag on my most recent cruise...it was a 6 hr flight both ways.....when we arrived we kinda just chilled out on the deck & had a few beverages....when we got home we did basically the same thing although the kids were home & it was nicer to just relax & cuddle for a few days!!

I find that if you get very very drunk your body totally forgets what time zone it is in and therefore does not suffer from any jet lag.

A funny: I had a friend fly from NJ to Fla and complain about jet lag.

I guess I should answer my own poll.

This is how I deal with jet lag:



It's a homeopathic remedy. I'm not sure if it really works or if it's a placebo effect, but when I take it according to the directions it doesn't take me nearly as long to get over the effects of jet lag as it normally would.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

I take a sleeping pill on the plane. Otherwise, there'd be no sleep at all. Last time we went to England, we slept for two hours at the hotel and then went out amongst 'em. Seemed to tide us over till that evening when we had a normal night's sleep. This time, we probably won't get to the hotel til late evening. Also we're lots older!

I think you should ask Set4 this question. Back in the late 80's, Motorola sent her to Japan. I was talking to her as she was waiting at her hotel on a Sunday morning to catch her flight back. Now get this, it was Saturday night here in Illinois. I went to bed, got a good nights sleep, went to our local tavern Sunday at noon for the Bears game and awaiting her arrival. She lived through two Sundays.

Going to Germany so many times I have had lots of problems with jet lag. Last time we went I took a sleeping pill and slept for the first time! When we arrived at local am time it was midnight for us. We stayed up all day, went to bed early evening and that was the end of the jet lag problem.

I usually try to get on the new time zone a couple of days before travelling or stop somewhere in the middle if it's a long flight and spend the night.

When flying to Hawaii we'll lay over in LA for a night to get adjusted 3 hours. Then when we get to Hawaii we only have to adjust another 3 hours. I was scheduled to go to Taiwan last month and planned on staying in Hawaii for a couple of days but I got out of that trip.

If we are going to the West Coast we usually start living on Pacific time a day or two before we travel.

Regards,
Thomas

Don't get jet lag. Too zoned out on Gravol (Dramamine) so I don't throw up on the plane!

We go across to UK occaisionally. When we get there it is usually early morning after an all night flight. We are tired but try to keep going that day and go to bed about 2 hours before our normal bedtime. We are normally OK the next day.
