We all know that jet-setting around the globe is super exciting, right?
It’s all about discovering new places, savoring exotic cuisines, and making memories.
But have you ever felt like your body is still catching up with you while you’re out there chasing the world?

Jet lag is a sneaky side effect of crossing different time zones. It’s the most common occurrence of traveling and yet the most overlooked symptom of these travels

What is Jet Lag?

As soon as you land in a new time zone, your energy takes a nosedive. You’re wide awake at odd hours, yawning in the middle of the day, and your mood is like a rollercoaster. While you know you are experiencing jet lag, there are more causes for concern thanks to your disrupted sleep pattern.

Jet lag is a temporary sleep disorder that occurs when your body’s internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm, becomes out of sync with the local time of your new destination as it is still tuned to your pre-travel time zone.

The severity of jet lag varies – it can be a minor annoyance or a full-blown energy zapper and the most common symptoms:

  • Feeling excessively tired and struggling to stay awake during the day, often accompanied by yawning and difficulty concentrating.
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep during the night, even though you may be tired from traveling.
  • Feeling the urge to nap or doze off during the day, especially during times when you should be awake and alert.
  • Disturbed digestion, including indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea, due to the disruption of your body clock affecting meal times.
  • Difficulty concentrating, memory lapses, and decreased cognitive performance due to the disruption in your sleep-wake cycle.

It’s important to note that the severity and duration of jet lag symptoms can vary based on factors such as the number of time zones crossed, the direction of travel, individual differences, and how well you adapt to new schedules.
