Jet lag is the mortal enemy of frequent travelers. This hateful nemesis will sap your energy and cause you to miss out on many adventures. Getting your body back into rhythm is a difficult task, but there are a few things you can do ahead of your trip to combat this foe.
Adjust Your Clock
To help yourself acclimate to a different time zone, pretend you’re already living in it. Spend the few days leading up to your flight sleeping and rising on your destination’s time schedule. That way, your body will already be in the process of adjusting its internal clock.
Adding some bright light to your life can help. If you find yourself heading west, using a light box for an hour or two after dusk can help your body adjust its circadian rhythm. When heading east, you’ll want to do the opposite and avoid light early in the day.
Research has shown fasting can alter your body’s circadian rhythm as well. To try this, you’ll want to eat your last meal at noon the day of your flight. Then, wait until 7 or 8 a.m. the following morning, while at your new destination, to eat again. This will prompt your body to start forming a new feeding schedule.
The babymoon trend is adding to the number of women traveling while pregnant. Expecting moms often need special items to take on the road. If you plan to travel while pregnant, you may want to consider adding these products to your suitcase.
Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.
With the early days of spring behind us, the busy days of summer festivals and events will be here before you know it. Most festival favorites, like Bonnaroo, Firefly, Coachella, Lollapalooza, CMA Music Festival and Austin City Limits, have lineups already announced, early-bird pricing expired and tickets mostly sold out or close to it, but, don’t worry, there are far more unique events taking place all over the world. If not this year, at least keep them on your radar for next.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
