Jet setting season is fast upon us with baby boomers, and retirees heading off to far off places, to explore the world or take a domestic excursion. Traveling is an exciting way to experience life beyond our own backyards, and meet new people, but can also be draining especially when we transition between time zones, and disrupt our normal rhythm. Train, plane or automobile, active adults can learn to outsmart jet lag, and take advantage of every adventurous moment with travel-friendly tips worth packing their bags for.
Travel guide writer Rick Steve’s is most known for his popular European travel television series that takes viewers behind the scenes to explore the roads less traveled through the eyes of a local. One of his most useful tips when traveling abroad is setting your clock to wherever your destination may be, and get moving! Fresh air, and exercise is the best way to combat jet lag, and travel fatigue. Make it a point to drop your things off at the hotel, and lace up your walking shoes. Keeping up with the current time zone will help to regulate your internal clock, and give you more time to soak in your surroundings.
