1 Skip the In-flight meal
It’s not just all the added salt that’ll keep you uncomfortable for days. Eating when your body would normally be asleep can throw your slumber patterns off.
2 Invest in a sleep mask
Use it in the air and at both ends of your travels to keep your rhythms as normal as possible.
3 No napping
Stay awake during the day, sleep at night. Sticking to a normal routine will help you shift those disorientating hours much faster than a 20-minute power nap.
4 Stay hydrated
Aeroplanes are dry, dry places, and it’s not only your skin that they will leave parched. Drink water throughout the flight and keep your fluids up for a couple of days either side.
5 But drink the right stuff
Leave those stronger drinks. You may think a nightcap will help send you off, and it might, but it’ll reduce the quality of your rest in the small hours.
