With the time today, jet-lag and insomnia become relevant issues for us. While the change in time is one hour and may not seem like much, it can have an affect on some of us. Those of us that have traveled to Europe or even from the East to the West coast have experienced a larger time change. There are many techniques that can help us with adjusting to the time difference. One can start slowly changing our sleeping time to start adjusting to the new time zone. Alcohol should be avoided because it leads a very poor quality of sleep. Meals and exercise within two hours of sleeping should also be avoided as it makes it more difficult to fall asleep. Of course caffeine and other stimulants also make it more difficult to fall asleep and/or stay asleep.
