Once there

It is generally assumed that the best remedy for getting past jet lag is to adjust to the new schedule as soon as possible. Change your watch to your destination's time when you depart the USA, and get as much sleep as possible on the flight. Then fight the urge to sleep the first afternoon there. Staying moderately active outside during the daylight hours helps set your body’s clock to the new time. Help present a positive face for Americans by keeping a passageway open on the sidewalks.
