Do the Jet Lag Workout.
Exercising the morning after your arrival can help you adjust to the new time zone faster, says Karyn Esser, Ph.D., a professor of physiology and functional genomics at the University of Florida. That's because your muscles have their own internal clocks, and they respond to movement rather than light, she says. Working out tells them that it's daytime, which lets you sync physiologically to your new time zone. Esser suggests doing some cardio for at least 30 minutes.
