Any suggestions for managing sleep with weekly cross-country travel? The 3 hour difference & long flights are killing me. I'm always either struggling to wake up or struggling to fall asleep.

I am based out of the east coast and traveled to the west coast earlier this year for about 3 months. At first I felt completely disoriented due to the time change and long flights, but then decided to continuously wake up around 5 AM when in PST. I would work out in the mornings and whenever I could, I would go to bed earlier than usual to get a good amount of sleep. Believe it or not, it made a huge difference coming back to the east coast on the weekends. Also, I would try to get sleep on the plane whenever possible (took face mask, neck pillow and wore comfy clothes). Small things can make a difference!

Magnesium, glycine, and theanine. If those dont get it done, see your doc about low dose ambien.

Pick one time zone and stay on a sleep schedule based on that time. Ex: Wake up at 7 EST (4 PST)

I tried, but I struggled to have balance on the weekends because my friends and family don't keep 4am-8pm hours, especially on the weekends. Did you just adjust your personal life? I might just have to deal with having a limited social life.
