Readjusting

I've been having difficulties to readjusting my sleeping schedule ever since I came back from my latest travel a couple of weeks ago. I find it hard to sleep at night even though the moment before I throw myself to bed I feel like I could pass out. It's like my inner clock is still set to different time zone. Trying to sleep is a battle, but waking up in the morning is also another issue. I find it really hard to open my eyes in the morning. If I didn't have to go to work, I would definitely pass out until 1 pm. Usually I can snap out the jetlag issue in a few days and adjusting my inner clock back. But this time I feel like I'm really really tired after all those travels and works I've done before, during and after traveling. 

What do you do to help your body get back to your normal schedule after some time of traveling or life schedule changing?

  1. I guess sleep is the best remedy... and a huge mug of steaming tea :)

  2. I cannot, CANNOT sleep without drinking BEDTIME tea by YOGI. I'm serious. For me, it is like a sedative. I have two cups while lying in bed and then I'm out. Completely and totally.
    Try it Niken!!
    And sweet dreams, little bird.

  6. I don't know what to recommend :) But I'm sure you'll figure it out! It just takes time. I love that coaster you have in the picture! It's so cute.

  8. I'm afraid I can't really help you, I haven't travelled that far.
    Perhaps you should tire yourself out? Go for a run or workout, nice hot shower and go to bed right away.
    I usually scroll around on 9gag and then I feel my eyelids getting tired and then I shut down my phone and I am going to sleep :]

  9. I hate jet lag. and by now, depending how many hours of time difference are involved, it can take up to a week to adjust. since I usually can't do much about falling asleep, or the lack of thereof, I try to force myself to get up at regular hours and NOT sleep until 1pm. but that's easier said than done. I don't think there are any good recipes for jet lag that work.

  10. Sorry to hear about this, Niken. I always have trouble adjusting my sleep schedule when I travel. I wish I would have any good advice but I usually just try to watch a movie until I fall asleep. That often helps.

  11. It always takes me at least a few days to get my sleep schedule back to normal once it's out of whack. I have an iPhone app that really helps me. It creates relaxing rain sounds!

  12. I'm sorry to hear this. If my sleep schedule changed it would literally take me 1 week or 2 to get back! And that would be for only one day.. I know ridiculous! Try listening to music to go to sleep. What I did was I forced myself to wake up early (7am) and drank coffee I then went to bed at 11-12. My body then knew I COULD NOT get off track! But that was me. I wish you better days!

  13. I have sleeping issues with or without traveling .. hope you sort this out and would love to read about it! Me, I am a total night owl, unable to sleep before 12 (say 3am or more) so 1-2 am is a force. I agree about waking up is another thing.. Hope it gets better for you?!

  14. I always jump into the current time of the place I'm in. It's the only to adjust the quickest and most natural ;-)

  16. I've heard serotonin can be a natural sleep aid, but I've never tried it myself. I would recommend doing as much physical activity as you can each day. That usually puts me right to sleep ;)

  17. Give yourself time, dear! Long journeys just do that too you. I love your blog's esthetics, btw. I will visit more often :)

  19. I hate jet lag! My tip is just to try to stay awake and only go to sleep at the normal time for your current timezone. But I know it's easier said than done!

  20. I fool my mind. I keep looking at my watch and reminding myself that it is still a day and not night... That I should sleep only at night... Like how a mother reminds her child... Most importantly, I never think of the time in "that" other country is...

    So... Fool yourself. I hope this should work!

  21. I'm always so tired when my head hits the pillow that I don't have any trouble sleeping...luckily for me but my husband swears by Paul McKenna's I Can Make You Sleep book/CD....sends you straight off apparently xxx
