How do you deal with jet-lags as a digital nomad?

Answered by Jacob Laukaitis, marketer

Most digital nomads don't really have a big problem with jet-lags, as they tend to change their surroundings quite slowly. A lot of them will go to one location for a couple of months, then another location (in the same region) for a few more months, etc., so it's easy to adjust. However, if you want to travel really actively (especially if you want to hop between continents), this will definitely be an issue.

My best advice is to adjust your sleeping patterns to the place you're in. If you come to a new place, it's 5 PM and the only thing you want to do is go to bed, force yourself to stay up until 10 PM. Likewise, if you land in a new city at 1 AM and go to bed at 3 AM, don't sleep until 2 PM the next day - wake up at 9 AM, have a cup of coffee and try to adjust as soon as possible.
