Then next thing Mark talks about is Time Shifting, on page 11. The guide takes time shifting to the nth degree: “Timeshifting is the strategy of switching your rest cycle, and mental, social, and/or environmental reference to a new time zone, either while in-flight, or more popularly, slowly in the days leading up to your trip. Depending on your schedule, it is usually easier “going” rather than “coming home,” but we address both here, as well as in the last chapter on Recovery (at home). If you neglect timeshifting (esp. frequent fliers and long-time travelers who should know better) you may then end up taking a week or two to get over the effects of jet lag once arriving home (or somewhere along the road after an important presentation or meeting). Most people writing about timeshifting speak about adjusting light/dark cycles, but we want to suggest you think of timeshifting in a more comprehensive way – Taking into account food/hunger, your social environment, when you work best/adrenaline, personality, noise and quiet, as well as exposure to light and dark.”
