almost all of us have experienced jetlag

after a long flight its symptoms include

drowsiness muscle aches and somnium

irritability and difficulty

concentrating and going east is always

worse than going west you see your

circadian rhythm has a tendency to run

slightly longer than 24 hours studies

suggest that we can push back our body's

clock about 2 hours per day flying west

over two time zones extends your day by

two hours which we can adjust to within

one day the same journey East has us

waking up two hours earlier and going to

bed two hours earlier which doesn't

necessarily mean sleeping we can advance

our sleep/wake cycles somewhere between

60 and 90 minutes per day so it could

take as much as two days to adjust to

get your body back on track
