We all have experienced jet lag at some point in our lives while traveling, this is where our body’s circadian rhythm is affected due to the travel across 3 or more time zones. Did you know that the direction of travel determines the impact on the body?
Traveling west to east:
You are more likely to have difﬁculty waking up in the morning and are up later in the evening. The number of days jet lag lasts is about two thirds of the number of time zones crossed.
Traveling east to west:
You are more likely to fall asleep earlier and get up at the crack of dawn. The number of days jet lag lasts is about half the number of time zones crossed.
