Jetting off for a relaxing beach vacation may sound like the perfect escape to combat stress right? Well not if you happen to suffer from jet lag. Jet lag is a physical reaction to a rapid change in time zones. It affects most travelers, including seasoned fliers like flight attendants and pilots. Common symptoms include disorientation, irritability, insomnia, fatigue, dry eyes, headaches, irregular bowels and general discomfort.
