1. In­cor­po­rate a stopover: “Try and in­cor­po­rate a stopover in the air­lines’ hub city to break up the jour­ney and al­low you to re­lax — even as lit­tle as a one-night stopover be­tween long jour­neys can help.” 2. Fly busi­ness class: “Un­der­stand­ably this isn’t in ev­ery­one’s bud­get, but even sim­ply ly­ing flat on a flight will al­le­vi­ate swollen an­kles and let you get some sleep.” 3. Get your flu­ids: “Drink plenty of wa­ter and flu­ids be­fore and dur­ing your flight to help keep you hy­drated.” 4. Change your watch: “Change your watch to the time of the des­ti­na­tion as soon as you board the flight and try and adapt to that time zone. It’s a good way to trick your mind and get it ready for what’s ahead.” 5. Stay ac­tive: “When you ar­rive, try to stay ac­tive and don’t sleep un­less it’s ap­pro­pri­ate to do so in a new time zone — stay­ing out­doors and in the sun­light can help keep you awake and help your body to ad­just.” 6. Dress comfy: “It helps to wear loose, com­fort­able cloth­ing that you can eas­ily re­lax in.”
