I have been traveling to the Philippines (11 or 12 hour time zone difference) annually for the last 10 years.

For me it is much easier than a smaller time zone difference, both ways. And when I get there, I am ready to work, and the same for my return.

While you may have a different experience, I'll tell you what I do. First off, try to change your watch so it reflects the new time zone time and begin to live that time zone on the plane. Keep hydrated on the plane, and try to sleep or stay awake, depending upon what you "should" be doing. Then if you are medically cleared to, take something to assist you to fall asleep at the correct time you should be sleeping. For me, I take Sonata (a 4 hour sleeping pill) for the purpose of getting to fall asleep at the time I should be sleeping. I do this for the first few nights and rarely feel any effects of "jet lag" when I travel out there to Asia, whether it is to work or for a vacation.

Also no naps in the daytime, no matter how tired I might be. Try to get lots of daylight exposure. Have fun.

Remember you will be on vacation and have fun! tongue.gif

I remember this question you had about jet-lag and thought I'd respond since
I'm in aviation. Well, many flight-attendants and pilots take melatonin. It really works
great. You have to take it a half hr before your bedtime and get into bed and read or
just chill....probably for 3 or 4 days in a row and your body should get back into the
correct circadian rhythm.

I've flown several 18 hour flights to far off places then back...Geeeesh almost a whole day on a plane! Staying hydrated at all times is kinda the Gloden Rule of Diving anyway. but works great for everyday life as well. I use Melatonin regularly at night and its safe (All Natural) but I have had a few scripts of Ambian when times get tough. If I where in your shoes I would be like this going over twist.gif and like this coming back banghead.gif                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 The only cure for getting your life back in order is to book another Trip with SD with-in 12 hours of your return, I cant prove it ....but it works divers.gif
