Jet lag: trends and coping strategies
Jet lag: trends and coping strategies

Jim Waterhouse, Thomas Reilly, Greg Atkinson, Ben Edwards

The number of travellers undertaking long-distance flight has continued to increase. Such flights are associated with travel fatigue and jet lag, the symptoms of which are considered here, along with their similarities, differences, and cases. Difficulties with jet lag because of sleep loss and decreased performance are emphasised. Since jet lag is caused mainly by inappropriate timing of the body clock in the new time zone, the pertinent properties of the body clock are outlined, with a description of how the body clock can be adjusted. The methods, both pharmacological and behavioural, that have been used to alleviate the negative results of time-zone transitions, are reviewed. The results form the rationale for advice to travellers flying in different directions and crossing several time zones. Finally, there is an account of the main problems that remain unresolved.

Britain has become a nation addicted to flying, according to a Guardian/ICM poll out today. It shows that more than two-thirds of people have travelled by plane in the last five years and reveals widespread opposition to government action aimed at cutting the number of people who fly in order to limit climate change.
The poll does reveal a growing level of concern about the impact of air travel. Almost half of air travellers claim they have changed their behaviour in response to fears about the impact on the environment.
