Travel Sleep Tips to Stay Well-Rested

It happens to all of us travellers at one time or another – we arrive at our dream destination but find ourselves to exhausted to enjoy it.Instead of soaking in the sights and sounds of a new city all we want to do is soak in a bath.

What a lot of people don’t realise is that travel is hard-work. Living out of a backpack, sleeping in unfamiliar rooms, jet-lag, night trains, unfamiliar food, new languages, the heat – it’s no wonder many travellers, especially inexperienced ones, spend most of their trip-of-a-lifetime’s with bags under their eyes.

But it needn't be this way. Below are some top tips to stay well-rested when you are on the road.

1. Sort out your pre-trip preparation

The worst way to start your trip is to leave home already feeling rundown and exhausted, yet so many of us do.Eliminate any last minute surprises, such as lost passports, by packing your bag a week in advance – not the night before.

If you are heading away on a big trip and need to say goodbye to your friends and family, then make sure to move your leaving party forward a week. Definitely definitely don’t have it the night before you get on the place. That is just asking for trouble.Your travel insurance won’t pay out if you’ve missed your flight due to a hangover – I found this one out the hard way!

2. Beat the jet-lag

Jet-lag is the worst.It can make you feel completely and utterly zombified for the first few days at your new destination.While it can be hard to eliminate the phenomenon completely there are a number of steps you can take to mitigate its impact.One tip is to gradually alter your own bedtime by 30 minutes a night in the week before you leave home. This will help you synchronise up with your intended destination.

Tip two is to do with your in-flight behaviour. As soon as you step on the plane change your watch to match the time at your destination. Work out if you should stay awake as much as you can or sleep as much as possible. This might mean skipping some films. Sorry!

Tip three is to stay hydrated. One of the main reasons will feel so zonked out on arrival at our destination is due to the simple fact we don’t drink enough water in transit. Cabin pressure causes a lot of dehydration. So do your body a favour, skip the free in-flight booze and down as much H2O as you can.
