Jet lag is a temporary sleep disorder, experienced by people who travel across multiple time zones in a short span of time. There are more than 24 time zones in the world. So, when you travel from one time zone to another, especially when the time zones of your source and destination locations are far apart, you experience jet lag.
Jet lag occurs because your body’s biological clock remains synchronized with the clock of your source time zone, i.e. from where you have begun your journey. It takes some time for your body to adjust to the time difference that you have traversed in a short span of time.
Some common symptoms of Jet lag are:
- Excessive tiredness
- Mood swings
- Sleep disorders
- Stomach problems
- Confusion and stress
Jet lag is a temporary condition and does not require a professional’s intervention for any kind of treatment unless you are a frequent traveller and experience jet lag during most of your trips.
