As I prepared for a long flight home from Los Angeles earlier this week, I knew I was going to be jumping right back in to a busy schedule upon my return. To help combat the inevitable jetlag from traveling from one side of the world to another, I prepared my body and mind. So far, these tips have been doing the trick! I feel calm and awake, and the transition has been quite smooth. Give these a try during your next big journey!

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the flight – I add 2g vitamin C powder + magnesium powder.

  • Avoid alcohol pre-flight and on the flight.

  • Avoid salty foods before, during and after the flight.

  • Pack healthy snacks to prevent yourself falling for unhealthy options – think raw nuts, bliss balls, seaweed and veggie sticks.

  • Prep a green wholefood powder when you arrive home. I’ve been using Nature’s Way green powder.

  •  Take a walk in the fresh air as soon as you can upon returning home.

  • Start up your yoga practice again as soon as possible.

  • Use lavender oil on your temples to calm the nervous system.

  • Sip chamomile tea at night.

  • Take homeopathic melatonin two hours before bed to help adjust your internal clock.
