Whether you’re planning an extravagant holiday or keeping things simple with a weekend away, don’t let poor sleep spoil the fun.
Every day, millions of travellers struggle against one of the most common sleep disorders – jet lag. Studies have shown that the condition actually results from an imbalance in our body’s natural biological clock or circadian rhythm caused by travelling to different time zones. Some simple behavioural adjustments before, during and after arrival at your destination can help minimise some of the side effects of jet lag.
The most common environmental elements affecting sleep are noise, sleep surface, temperature or climate, and altitude. If you’re sleeping away from home, check to see what amenities your hotel offers to ensure a good night’s sleep. A hotel should always provide travellers with a quiet sleeping environment that includes a supportive bed and a selection of pillows. If there is outside noise or other disturbances, guests should be given the opportunity to move to a quieter room in the hotel. Many hotels are happy to accommodate weary travellers’ requests.
And lastly, eat well and exercise to have a healthy balanced life. What keeps you alert and refreshed at home will serve you well on your travels.
