Jet lag is a feeling of tiredness and confusion after a long-haul journey. It’s the result of your body finding it difficult to adjust to a new time zone. Jet lag can disturb your sleep pattern and make you feel drowsy and lethargic (lacking in energy) The more time zones you cross during a long-haul flight, the more severe jet lag can become.
If you travel across time zones, it can take a while for your body clock to adjust to a new daily routine. Since your body controls your sleeping and waking pattern, it also effects your appetite, digestion, bowel habits, urine production, body temperature and blood pressure. A disturbed sleep pattern is one of the most common symptoms of jet lag.
