How to: Beat Jet-Lag | Karla Dembik | LinkedIn

Nothing is worse than being on a never-ending plane flight and even before the flight takes off we have battled our way thru the obstacle course of an airport. We have already conquered the stresses of getting to the airport on time (hopefully), airport security, rude passengers-you name it-we have all been there, seen it, done it, and been a part of it. We have hit our stress level before we have even buckled in our seat and taken off. Now it's the never-ending flight that we are hoping to catch some ZZZs on, but then we realize, if we are the modest type, we don't want to be caught with our mouth open {you all know who I am talking about ;) } So we stay awake and justify to ourselves, "i'll just take a quick nap when I get there and be ready to go!" FAIL -I don't know about you but when I say that, I usually end up sleeping 12 hours, wake up in the middle of the night forgetting where I am and forcing myself to go back to sleep until it is light out again (just wasted an entire day of exploring! bummer!)
