Turn-Around Trip to the Other Side of the Globe

There is very little to enjoy about a turn-around trip to the other side of the globe. It is tiring, and generates a strange sort of jet lag, to make the long flight both ways in less than one week. With jet lag, you never know whether it is night or day. With this particular breed of jet lag, you also never quite know whether you are coming or going, awake or asleep, hungry or full, or much of anything else. It can be quite disorienting.

I've found that the best way to defeat this sort of jet lag is to not try to adjust. Just do the things you have to do, whatever time of the day they have to be done, and sleep when you can. You won't quite feel like you have enough sleep, whenever you do manage to catch a nap, so just get what you can and readjust when life gets back to normal.

I'll have a look at this sage advice again next week, when I am arriving back home from just such a trip.
