I usually do not suffer too much from jet lag. But for some reason, I knew that this time would be harder than usual.
So here's what I did as soon as I woke up after a short night of sleep (I landed at 9pm and knew I'd have trouble finding sleep).
EAT HEALTHY - Breakfasts at work with colleagues, lunches on the go, after work drinks with friends, dinners with more friends, mom's cooking, birthdays and wedding... you get the picture. I've overindulged in France and Switzerland. I'm not mad about it, but now I need to reset my eating habits.
I arrived late the night before and the fridge was still empty so I woke up early, had an apple cider vinegar shot, went for a walk and got a vitamin packed smoothie at Poa, my favorite conscious cuisine provider.
STAY ON SCHEDULE - I have some pretty big projects in the works and really need to get back to my regular working hours. Working from home in the same room as Octave hasn't always been successful so far so I'm looking at other options. A room (or studio) of my own would be my ultimate dream, but coworking could be a solution in the meantime.
So I'm about to visit The Weller Society, a coworking space that opened a couple weeks ago while I was traveling. Octave attended the opening and liked the vibe, so I'm excited to give it a try.
RELAX - Everybody talks about that new acupuncture studio, Golden Hour, and I was just waiting for the right occasion to go. As I was sitting in the Frankfurt airport lounge during a 6+ hours layover (I'm so bad at scheduling flights) I remembered it and immediately scheduled an appointment for the next morning. Best impulsive purchase ever where I actually learnt that there is an acupressure protocol to beat jet lag!
What's your secret recipe to beat jet lag? What are your thoughts on melatonin?
