Resetting your Body clock to avoid jet lag

Jump to last reply

We will be flying from US to Europe and will arrive in Europe at 7am. I am wondering if anyone has ever tried to get your body on european time by adjusting your schedule by an hour a day for a period of 8 days? I thought If got up an hour earlier each day and went to sleep each day an hour earlier that within in 8 days, I would be on europe time.

So, on day one, I would get up at 5:30 am and go to sleep at 9:30 pm. The next day, I would get up at 4:30am and go to sleep at 8:30 pm. The next day, I would get up at 3:30 am and go to sleep at 7:30 pm. If I did this for 8 days - the day of our flight we would be on Europe time for departure and be able to sleep on the plane and awake for landing at the correct time.

Anyone ever try this?

[I do not have any constraints for work etc, so I can do this without worrying about times.]
