I’m traveling overseas in a few weeks and I was wondering how to start the day when you’ve been traveling overnight. I’ve heard you shouldn’t go to bed, but try to stay awake until the normal bedtime wherever you are. Is there anything to take to help stay awake?

    Stay awake by taking a walk in the sunlight. It will help naturally reset your circadian rhythms.

    The best thing to do is to try and sleep on the plane then hit the ground running when you land. The worst thing you can do is go to sleep when you land in the middle of they day. Eat light, drink water, and when you land pace yourself but stay awake until a near normal bed-time. Avoid any pills to stay awake as it may disrupt your sleep when you try to go to bed.

    Whenever I travel international I set my watch to the local time of the destination prior to departure, then eat and sleep accordingly. If I arrive in the middle of the night I go to bed, arrive early morning I stay up. Begin by eating/sleeping according to local time while you are inflight or even before. At the destination fresh air and light exercise helps you stay awake and renew energy.
