I'm very much a night person and very much not a morning person. When I fly 12 time zones to Asia it's easy to adjust.
Adjusting to getting up just one hour earlier than the prior day-- when not traveling-- makes me very tired.
Staying up late and sleeping late the same number hours late is not a problem. But getting up earlier is hell. It's taken me a month to adjust in the past from being about 12 time zones away for a month ( I’ve done over 12 trips to East Asia)
Instead of going BACK to the original USA time and essentially waking up 12 hours earlier-- why not stay up late over the course of a trip in Asia-- which also fits with my work schedule when I’m in Asia of being up late to talk to those arriving in morning for work in USA-? When I arrive 4-6 hours difference sleep schedule back in USA after trip from staying up at end to 4AM in Asia then my body is basically adjusting to staying up late AGAIN.
It means I've basically "won" a free day of time. I've gained 12 hours arriving. I've stayed up late over the month there. And then I've stayed up late again in the USA to get the same time.
The advice about adjusting to sleep zones from articles on the web is very simplistic or simply doesn't address this.
Your help means a lot to me! I've suffered from it and have to deal with it a lot. Thanks!
