Some people seem to be able to readjust their body clock and don’t seem to be really bothered by jet lag, but others experience the familiar routine of waking up at strange hours because they are still living according to the clock at home.
After spending so much time and effort setting up your meetings and working out the details of your trip, it would be a shame if you were so worn out by the effects of jet lag that you weren’t on top of your game with business colleagues.
With that in mind, a recent post at Road Warrior Voices provides some details on three apps that will help you combat jet lag and get the most out of your next lengthy trip.
Developed by the University of Michigan, Entrain simulates your circadian rhythm and makes calculations to give you advice on the best lighting conditions (you will be told to expose yourself to light or to remain in darkness accordingly). The app’s recommendations are based on information from the journal PloS Computational Biology.
Jet Lag App
The Jet Lag App, developed by OZOMedia, is designed to reduce the negative effects of jet lag, using an algorithm that helps you gradually adjust your sleep patterns. You can also save up to 10 trips in the app, which is handy if you frequently travel to the same locations on a regular basis for your company.
Jet Lag Rooster
Have you ever been woken up by a rooster that is greeting the new morning? It would be great to have a steady sleep schedule liked that while traveling! The Jet Lag Rooster, developed by SWAN Medical Group, lets you customize your trip’s sleeping schedule. It offers recommendations about proper light exposure and when you should avoid the sunlight as you reset your clock.
Being worn out from a long journey and having to deal with the effects of jet lag is a common predicament for business travelers. We hope that you will find these app suggestions useful and that they will help you get the most out of your next business trip.
