Dealing with Jet-lag:
Time difference example… on Saturday, January 13th at 3:00 AM, Beijing
14 hours earlier….Friday, January 12th 1:00 PM in Mexico City
The key to acclimating yourself is:
Sleep or rest on the flight to Beijing, as much as possible. Also
avoid carbohydrates during flight because they give you energy
and discourage sleep
DON’T sleep upon arrival, remain awake until sundown
Upon arrival, take a shower and eat a high-carb meal and get
out to see the town
DON’T drink alcohol during flight or upon arrival, it will just
make you more tired
Wake at a normal hour the next morning in order to enjoy a full
day (Beijing time)
If is possible arrive one day early…and be fully rested for check-
