Samantha Brown Tip: How to Fight Off Jet Lag

Reader reesiecup wanted to hear some tried and true tips for jet lag from a travel expert, and Travel Channel host Samantha Brown shared some great tips when I interviewed her last week. Here's what she had to say:

"About two days before I’m to go overseas, I stay away from all caffeine. I don’t drink any. No tea, no coffee. And so it kind of leaves my system and when I arrive at the place, at that first sign, that first feeling of your body solidifying into cement — which is how I just equate jet lag, even if you’re walking you just want to lay down. When you feel that coming on, you head to the first café you see, take a shot of espresso and it'll hit your body like ten horses. Then you’ll be able to go on a little more. The worst thing you can do is sleep. You have to fight off sleep. You have to get yourself on that schedule or you’ll just feel terrible for three to four days right from the beginning. Also, I sleep on the plane and that’s my first night of good sleep."
