So I have just returned from a fabulous, spontaneous trip to North America (and when I say spontaneous, I mean I literally booked my last connecting flight about two weeks before leaving…which freaked me out a little, but what the heck!) and although I had an amazing time, there was one thing that really dampened my travel buzz…
The jet lag! Now I know this is something that the majority of us suffer from, but when it steals two whole days from a 12 day trip, it’s really quite frustrating!! I almost thought that I had managed to cheat the jet lag this time, but after one good night’s sleep I spent the second night wide awake, only to crash the following day. And of course this led to me being groggy and miserable, with a horrendous outbreak of nasty red splotches all over my face and a dysfunctional digestive system! Not the best way to start a holiday.
So in order to prevent you from going through the same pointless suffering, I have complied a list of my top three travel essentials for staying on top of that jet lag. Whether you are jet-setting to the other side of the world, or simply heading on a family road trip, these items will help to keep you fresh and comfortable so you can really get the most out of your holiday!
I think one of the worst things about travelling is how out-of-whack your body clock gets…even when there’s not that much of a time difference! It’s always so hard to sleep in a new bed, with new sounds and a pillow that isn’t quite what you are used to. So make sure you bring along a natural sleep spray, to gently reset your system and to help ease you into a regular, healthy sleep pattern. It truly makes all the difference!
