Ambien/xanax would be great. Dirty docs wya?

Ambien. A few stiff drinks. Sleep 20 hours.

Drink lots of water. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Go to bed when you "should," even if you don't feel tired

Avoid alcohol in biz class? I'm getting too old for this shit.

Force yourself to stay awake and keep to normal hours as much as possible. Tons of coffee, workout/run in the evening, take a shower at night when you're getting Torres, etc. I flew in from HKG last week and had virtually no jet lag, except for a few days of waking up at 4-5am.

OP doctors explicitly prescribe ambien for jet lag.

Op was this for client work? I'd love to be on s project that allowed for travel to china

No joke, get fucking hammered. Resets your whole body.

According to Rick Steeves, jetlag hates sun and exercise. In the future, if you get on NY time when you board the plan, you will have less jetlag.

@ACN1 I wish it was for client work, then I'd fly Delta One vs Coach but I just took PTO & went over to check out HKG. Awesome place.
