1. Sleep Well
Most of us know that getting our “beauty sleep” is essential for feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning (do I sound like your grandma?), but quality sleep is also crucial for recovering from jet lag. Avoid the sluggishness and irritability and ask about early check-in and late check-out at your hotel. Many establishments have “quiet zone” floors and other sleep amenities (think movie star eye masks and thick shades), and with a little melatonin, the relaxing and recovery can begin. “Frankincense and sandalwood capsules can also help aid insomnia and ensure that you have a good night’s rest when you reach your final destination,” says Blanca Albor, spa director, Acqualina Resort & Spa, Miami Beach, Florida.
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas offers Stay Well rooms, which feature dawn simulator alarm clocks, a vitamin C shower infusion (yes, you read that correctly), indoor air purification systems and other services for treating travel weariness.
