Jet Lag: Your Comments and Opinions

Frank Gillingham, MD

Managing jet lag is extremely personal. Just as you need to pick your own mattress (soft or firm?), pillow (thin or thick?), and lighting arrangements (shades up or down?) to sleep well at home, you will need to experiment to find the right environment that will allow you to sleep well on a plane or in your new time zone. Many readers reported that they have licked jet lag through habits developed over time, without the use of expensive devices or medications.
