Jet lag is one of the most annoying things a traveler will experience during long overseas trips. Some symptoms that a person experiencing jet lag will feel are sleepiness at 5:00 p.m., a sudden sense of feeling hyper and hungry at 3:00 a.m.and mixed feelings of fatigue and nausea during the middle of the afternoon. At this point of modern times, there is still no cure for this pesky body condition, not a single pill you can find in any drug store in the world. But despite all that, many global travelers have developed ways to prevent jet lags.

The battle of jet lag starts at home, says Co-CEO of multinational translation company TransPerfect, Phil Shawe, as stated by Forbes. And so, one must be aware of his or her body condition before entering the plane. Mark Green, the brilliant mind behind private jet company Volanteus, gave tips on how to prevent jet lag, during an interview with Metro UK. He came up with these tips based on his personal experience.

The most easy-to-say yet difficult-to-do answer would be to fly privately. If a traveler rents a private jet, he or she can advise the pilot to fly lower than the height of which commercial jets fly. In this case, the pressure inside the cabin will be much similar to that on the ground. This will make your body more familiar with the environment and there will be more chances of getting a relaxing sleep.

One must also avoid eating a heavy meal before boarding the plane. Flying can cause strain on the body. It's better to eat light food, like soup or salad, before the flight. Always bring a water bottle and keep yourself hydrated. It is also best to avoid alcoholic beverages during flight, for it will dehydrate you.

It's also a good idea to synchronize one's body clock with the rising and setting of the sun. It means, you should be awake at the usual time you're awake and asleep at the usual time of sleep while inside the plane. As soon as you arrive, take 10 to 15 minute naps to help your body get used to the new time zone. Taking walks and swimming will also help your body adjust to the time differences.
