Adjust Your Body Clock Before the International Dateline Does
Depending on where you’re headed, adjust your time and condition your mind to the different time zone. It’s a given that you won’t have the best sleep ever, but don’t get a beating from jetlag, too. Avoid alcohol and don’t take sleeping pills without consulting a doctor. Before the trip, make sure to drink lots of water, but slow down on liquids and food a couple of hours before the flight to avoid tummy trouble and frequent visits to the rest room.
