Stay hydrated. This is a common theme in traveling period, but it’s especially important for those of you who are working while you’re in transit. Drinking plenty of water will not only help you focus and stay alert, but it will help you adjust to jet lag too. Bring your own ginger and peppermint tea to aid digestion.
Sleep – but not during the day. This is a tricky one for flight attendants trying to adjust to jet lag. Surprisingly, one of the best things you can do to get on schedule when you reach a destination in the morning (quite common) is to sleep for about 3 hours, then get up and try to carry on in the current time zone. If you can then plan to go to bed at 7pm, you should acclimate more easily and are then on track for the rest of your trip. From there, make 8 hours of sleep the priority!
Take time for you. You’re in a job that demands a lot of time, attention and care-taking – take a moment to acknowledge all that you do! Make it a priority to spend at least 10 minutes a day alone. Switch off and practice some deep breathing. Consider journaling about your experiences – not many people have the opportunity to see the world the way you do! Not only will this help you relax and focus, it will be fun to reflect back on. Book a nice massage and take care of your body.
