I always get horrible jet-lag. The weird thing is that no matter what time I go to sleep I always wake up around 7am UK time. So if I’m in New York and drinking all night and in at 1.30am I wake up at 2am, bright as a button. For days. Then I crash around the third day and have no idea what time I sleep or wake.
LA is worse because it’s an eight hour time difference. I’m usually in LA for very short spells, four or five days maybe, and the whole time I try to get to bed around midnight as my body thinks it’s 8am and then I sleep for an hour, totally awake until next morning when I have to get up for work.
But Greece is my new and most annoying on. It’s two hours and EAST, but still. The whole time I was in Greece I was on UK time and wake up at 9am every day, but as soon as I’m home I’m waking up at 5am thinking it’s 7am. It’s mental. That’s two nights now and both mornings I’m awake at 5 and ready to get going.
Does anyone have any brilliant suggestions? I’m in the States next month and need to be ready to wage war on jet-lag this time.
