Going on a vacation is one of the best ways to relax and unwind. Traveling to other places does help take away your stress, but sometimes, jet lag comes in the way and ruins everything. Here are five tips on battling jet lag so you'd get the most fun out of your travels.

Tweak Your Sleeping Patterns

Varying time zones between destinations are causes of jet lag. According to Independent, what you can do is to tweak your body clock by following the time zone of your destination and adjust to it gradually. It may be hard to do at first but once you arrive at your destination, you'll be thankful you did it because you're already adapted to the new time zone.

Avoid Sleeping Pills If Possible

It's really hard to sleep on planes especially in those cramped seats. Taking sleeping pills is so tempting--however, you need to be awake when the plane lands. If you really want to sleep, make yourself comfortable by taking off your shoes, wearing comfy clothes, and using sleeping masks.

Wait For The Early Local Bedtime Upon Arrival

Once you arrive at your hotel, it's hard to resist to doze off at that soft and comfy bed. According to Rick Steves, it wouldn't do you good because you'll probably wake up at midnight and still not adjusted to the local time. Instead of sleeping, try to go out, take a walk and breathe some fresh air and wait for the earliest local bedtime.

Choose A Strategic Location For Your Hotel Room

The location of your hotel room can really make a difference. You don't want to be disturbed by the noise of hotel staff, service crews, and other guests while your sleeping. If you're checking in at a large hotel, choose higher level rooms but for low-rise hotels, pick the ones at the back.

It's Okay To Nodd Off

There's no harm in nodding off during your travels. In fact, it even helps your mind and body rest by reducing your stress levels while traveling. Short naps would really help you a lot.

If you're planning on traveling, you can apply these tips so you can enjoy your vacations. Don't let jet lag take away the life out of you.
