Jet lag is a group of various symptoms shown by physiologic alterations that occur when the body is shifted into a new time zone. Travel tiredness and exhaustion is a more complex addition of various physiologic, psychological, and environmental factors that arise during an individual trip, collecting over the course of a season. Jet lag has been observed in pilots, air travelers, cabin crew members, physicians, and athletes. The effect of travel between various continents and extensive travel by passengers can result in physiologic upset and a complicated set of mental and physical symptoms. Currently, there is a culture of disregard and lack of knowledge regarding the negative effects of jet lag on the performance and well-being of a person. In addition, the key physiologic metric that guides jet lag treatment is difficult, and thus make limitations to therapeutics available today. Jet lag is a common problem for many air travelers. Currently, there is no standard definition of this disorder, but most studies include symptoms of weakness, fatigue, decreased daytime alertness, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, daytime sleepiness, and lack of energy after a long flight. Jet lag disorder is generally temporary and usually does not need medication and treatment. Within few days the condition often improves although sometimes symptoms last longer. However, if an air traveler is continuously bothered by jet lag, medications or light therapy to improve jet lag may be prescribed by a doctor.
