National Lose the Jet Lag Day 2024: The origin of jet lag is that your body’s circadian clock cannot keep up with the rapid changes in sleep, wakefulness, and light/darkness. This results in a disruption of nearly all biological systems and frequently leaves travel days feeling particularly tiring.

National Lose the Jet Lag Day 2024

We observe National Lose the Jet Lag Day on January 17. It’s the ideal time to learn more about jet lag science and how to “timeshift” to acclimate to different time zones more quickly, allowing you to have a more rewarding and productive travel experience as we begin to plan our trips for the upcoming year.

The United Family of Cards from Chase, which improves people’s travel experiences by offering card points and advantages, is the sponsor of this day.

On National Lose the Jet Lag Day, we recognize the substantial financial and human consequences associated with jet lag, which range from impaired immune system function to poor attention and decreased productivity. The most crucial time signals for resetting the circadian clock are light exposure and avoidance, which may be strategically timed to fight jet lag, according to United’s partners at Timeshifter®. Together with suggestions for when to sleep and nap, as well as the optional usage of melatonin and caffeine, Timeshifter’s jet lag software can help your body clock reset faster than usual so you don’t miss a beat when traveling.

Together with Chase and United, let’s make this year of travel even more thrilling and fruitful by learning how to prevent jet lag!

Time-shifter’s facts on jet lag

Symptoms of Jet Lag

Jet lag manifests itself in various ways, such as exhaustion, drowsiness, upset stomach, poor judgment and decision-making, memory loss, anger, apathy, and weakened immune system on the weekends. These symptoms frequently lead to decreased enjoyment, decreased productivity, and compromised safety.

If You’re Flying East or West, It Matters

Your chronotype—that is, whether you are an early riser or a night owl—determines whether you find it simpler to go east or west! We have to extend our day and push back our circadian clock when we travel west. We have to shorten our days and set our circadian clocks ahead when we travel east. Since around 75% of people are night owls and their days are longer than 24 hours, they find traveling west to be simpler because they are ‘moving with their clock’ rather than against it. Around 25% of individuals are early birds, meaning their circadian clocks have a day length of less than 24 hours. They find it easier to travel east because this is the equivalent of organically moving a little bit east every day.

Unconventional Medication Usage

Sleep aids may put you to sleep during the trip or make it easier for you to fall asleep at the hotel, but they don’t change your circadian rhythm and may make it difficult for you to see light at the appropriate times of day, which is the actual scientific way to address the root cause of jet lag. If you properly time your light-dark exposure to reset your circadian clock, you shouldn’t need to take sleeping pills because you should be able to go to sleep at your regular hour.

Timed Light Exposure Is the Secret to Fast Adaptation

Many people are surprised to learn that the most crucial time cue for resetting your circadian clock is light. The key to swiftly adjusting to new time zones is knowing when to see light and when to avoid it. The proper amount of light exposure at the right moment can greatly quicken the process of adaption. Jet lag will worsen if you see light at the wrong moment, as many non-experts advise.

Suggestions for jet lag by Timeshifter

Create a Strategy

You may create customized jet lag plans with the Timeshifter app by entering your chronotype, sleep pattern, itinerary, and preferred amounts of melatonin and coffee.

Control Your Exposure to Light

The proper amount of light exposure at the right moment can greatly quicken the process of adaption. Jet lag is worse when you see light at the wrong time.

Moderate Caffeination

Caffeine consumption should be “little and often” and should end after noon to maximize its positive effects and reduce its detrimental effects on sleep.

We have not reviewed these assertions with the Food and Drug Administration. Timeshifter is meant for healthy individuals who are at least eighteen years old, and is not meant to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any condition. The jet lag app from Timeshifter is exclusively meant for passengers, not for flight attendants who are on duty.
