For those not in the industry, traveling for business seems tranquil, glamorous, and even an enviable perk. However, many seasoned business travelers would agree that it can be exhausting and all-consuming, with many saying that jet lag as one of the worst parts of traveling extensively for work.
Jet lag is a temporary sleep disorder that people experience after traveling across time zones. It disrupts a person’s sleep due to rapid travel and causes an imbalance to the traveler’s circadian rhythm (internal body clock). When not planned beforehand, jet lag can lead for a person to suffer from all kinds of symptoms such as insomnia, loss of appetite, depressed mood, upset stomach, fatigue, and mental fuzziness.
