Advice for direct 18-hour flight Singapore to USA to avoid jet lag

Jump to last reply

Hi - It was pretty easy coming from Newark to Singapore when we left at midnight and arrived in Singapore around 6 AM on the direct flight, but now that it's time to return, I'm wondering what would be the best advice on how or when I should sleep in order to avoid as much jet lag upon our return.
Tonight is our last night in Singapore.
I'm wondering if I should purposely try to not sleep as long as I would, so that I'm somewhat fatigued, and am able to sleep as much as I can on our 12 noon direct 18-hour flight to Newark tomorrow.
I know to avoid caffeine, etc... but am just not sure about the sleeping part.
It was easy to sleep on the flight here considering it was midnight when we started off...
When we finally arrive in Newark, it will be 5PM - after we get our bags, and go through customs, we have a 3-hr drive from the airport to our home, so we'll be getting to our house around 9-9:30PM. Thank you very much for any advice - your experience is always appreciated very much!
