Flying into different time zones
Hello from California! Since I was flying over from the East Coast, I knew I'd have to deal with the three hour time difference. The best way to handle this is just to sleep the whole way over. I had an early morning flight (~6am), so I was already tired from waking up at 3 in the morning. Once I got to the airport, I also took some medicine that has a drowsy side effect so that I knew I would knock myself out. I did indeed sleep through most of my flight, so when I arrived in Los Angeles at 11am PCT, I was ready to go. I was able to be awake and alert until about 11pm, so I transitioned to the time change very nicely. So if you have a similar trip coming up, try to normalize your body to the new time zone as quickly as possible!
