Warm weather, your feet in the sand, a drink in your hand, and the sound of the ocean. Sound like a great vacation? While vacations do help us relax, they can also disturb sleep patterns, especially on long travel days. Lack of sleep and jet lag are common.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, our bodies work on circadian rhythms, a 24-hour cycle measured by the rise and fall of body temperature, plasma levels of certain hormones, and other biological conditions. Our circadian rhythms often take several days to adjust when traveling to a new time zone, which produces jet lag. Whether you have a big trip planned this summer or you’re heading to a weekend getaway, here are some tips to help you get the best sleep when traveling.
