Long flights are hard enough on the body. But the discomfort doesn’t end at the baggage carousel. Jet lag or desynchronosis can plague us long after we’ve arrived at our destination. It occurs when our internal body clock gets knocked for a loop if we travel over many time zones. Symptoms include insomnia, fatigue, irritability and more — and affects can last for several days.
