Thailand, also known as the ‘Land of Smiles’ is one of the most beautiful islands in the world to visit, with its stunning blue sea and sandy white beaches. Also known as the country who hosts the most lit beach parties.
However, snorkelling in the amazing sea and dancing the night away under the Thai sky can be hard to do if you are still struggling to get over your jet lag. While the idea of drinking cocktails and watching the sun go down are great, it’s hard to do if all you can think about is when you can get back to your hotel room and have a nice long sleep!
We all know that the flight to Thailand is long and very tiring and with it, comes jet lag which can really mess up your holiday if not fixed as you land.
Cadbury 5Star who has partnered with Party Planet Powered by 5FM is offering an exciting trip to Thailand and offers 5 tips on how to get over jet lag and to enjoy your holiday with no worries:
Get out as much as possible:
Fresh air and exercise can do wonders for jet lag, you might be mentally tired, but wearing yourself out physically will help you get better sleep at night-time and prevent you waking up so much through the night.
Try get up at the same time:
Don’t sleep in. Regardless of the time you managed to fall asleep, help reset your sleep-wake cycle quickly by setting an alarm and getting up on Thai time. Set an alarm for 09h00 or 10h00 Thai time and try to stick to it as much as possible.
Get a Thai Massage:
Not only is experiencing a Thai Massage a ‘must’ when visiting the island, but it can also help to relieve stress and relax the body after a long trip. It also helps that most of the Thai massages are done on the beaches with the waves crashing close by, which is not only relaxing but can help you sleep in minutes.
It’s not only important to keep hydrated as Thailand can be extremely hot and humid, but it can also allow you to get over your jet lag without having to resort to taking sleeping pills
Nourish your Body:
Lack of sleep can take its toll on your body, so when you land in Thailand, be sure to try out some of their delicious fruit to keep your immune system up while your body gets used to the time change.
