9. Don't skip your workout
Follow your exercise regimen at the same time wherever you go. If you work out in the morning at home, you should fit in a workout in the morning at your destination. Also, it's worth getting up to move around the cabin during the flight. Not only will that help prevent deadly blood clots, but it'll keep your body from getting cramped or fatigued when you touch down.
10. If it's a short trip, don't bother adjusting If your trip is only a couple days, you'll finally be fully adjusted to your new time zone as soon as it's time to hop on a plane home, so you may be better served not trying to switch at all.
