Stop Being Jetlagged!!! Get SAD
For those of you who travel regularly, jetlag is a part of life. For those who travel South to North, the lack of sun in the mornings can lead to fatigue, insomnia, and even depression. I personally found myself unable to rise before 10AM whenever I visited my fiancee is Seattle last year, having come from Florida. Had I needed to be up at 8AM for a presentation, well, let’s just say I would have needed a pitcher of coffee.
I recently purchased a SAD alarm. It is an alarm clock that turns on a UV light gradually over the course of an hour or so, slowly filling your room. It simulates a sunrise quite nicely, and makes your body think you are still in beautiful Southern Florida, instead of the rainy, depressing North. If you have any trouble waking up when you are on the road, the 80 dollars is worth a good night sleep.
