So what actually is Jet Lag? To put it simply, it's a temporary sleep issue that affects people who travel quickly across different time zones. It occurs when your 24 hour internal clock, medically know as your circadian rhythm does not match the local time zone. So as an example, travelling from the UK to L.A, if you landed at 5pm local time, then your body would think it's actually 1am because of the time difference. So as you can imagine, your body will be very tired and fatigued. This can sometimes take several days or even weeks for your body to adjust; which on a week long holiday, is not ideal.
