When anyone begins to think about where to go on vacation, certainly the length of the flights for many is a huge deciding factor about where to consider traveling to. As a Hawai’i specialist, this is normally one of the first questions I am asked as I begin to work with new clients looking for the perfect destination for their Honeymoon. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do to reduce the time it takes to fly from the east coast to Hawai’i but I have found that concentrating on being hydrated helps considerably to cut down on my jet-lag. I have found that when I drink plenty of water before the flight, stick to fruit juice and herbal tea during flight I am not nearly as irritable or tired when I arrive and my muscles take sitting for long periods of time a lot better.
In addition, for the days leading up to my trip I avoid salty foods and snacks and instead eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. I avoid caffeine and alcohol because both can have the opposite effect people are looking for and can prevent you from sleeping on the flight. In addition I try to avoid high-fat meals opting instead to eat lighter meals with protein such as grilled chicken, broccoli and a salad. I also take protein bars as a healthy snack during the flight.
For those that are seriously worried about it, there are some websites that even go as far as preparing customized travel plans , one such site is Stop Jet Lag.
I hope these simple thoughts will help you next time you are on a long flight.
