Jet leg is no fun. Not all jet lag is created equal. Traveling east is worst than traveling west. Why? First, you typically take off at night. Second, when you should be sleeping, you are not fully asleep or don’t sleep at all. Third, you arrive at the beginning of the day without having gotten uninterrupted sleep. Fourth, your body does not know that you have landed in another time zone or two.
But planning ahead can make it easier to adjust. Try Jetlag Rooster.
