Want to prevent jet lag? Here's the simple way to do it

It might even involve MORE sleep. Lovely.

JET LAG IS ghastly. There you are, freshly returned from an amazing trip out foreign, trying to adjust to the idea of being back to ‘real life’, when it hits you.

You can’t sleep until 4am. Or you badly need to sleep at 4pm. Then you wake up at an ungodly hour, feeling like you’ll ever sleep again. You’re like a zombie stumbling through a fog.

Turns out there’s a fairly easy way to avoid jet lag, and it involves, well, science.

Have a look.
