For whatever reason, I suffer worse jet lag than other people seem to, and I don’t travel often enough to have a winning solution. So this time I’ve been trying to adjust to Spanish time before I go. Still jetlagged, but at least I’ll get it done here in the States.
It involves waking at 3 AM (hi world!) and using bright full-spectrum light to trick my body into thinking it’s daylight. Then I close the shades and turn out the lights by about 2 PM to mimic evening.
In theory. In practice, it means 5 hours sleep last night and 2 the night before. I’d damn well better sleep on the flight over there. Braaaaaaainz.
