What are your top tips for recovering from jet-lag?

Firstly, exercising can help shift your body clock so I always ensure that I get some movement in. If I’ve just arrived somewhere and it’s the evening, go for weights. If it’s early afternoon or morning, go for cardio to help boost your energy and stay awake. Secondly, I always take a natural sleep tonic in the evening to help get my body into a good sleep rhythm. I use our Artah Deep Sleep, which helps sleep onset and duration but doesn’t cause drowsiness. Cold showers are also a great way to reset the body clock and help naturally stimulate the nervous system without overdoing it with caffeine.

How do you maintain your fitness regime whilst travelling?

I love running, which is a great way to explore an area, so I take my running shoes everywhere I go. I take a resistance band and loop, which means I can create a ton of different resistance workouts if there’s no gym onsite, and I also do a lot of short, bodyweight HIIT. I love working out, so I never see it as a chore. My energy, mood, and digestion are always better when I train – all important for feeling great on holiday!

What is your ultimate holiday indulgence?

I love the breakfast buffets on holiday – it’s the thing I look forward to most. Other than that, I would say that I have more alcohol on holiday. I don’t drink much at all at home  (with a business and a baby – soon to be two!). When I’m on holiday and can rest more, I’ll probably go for a cocktail or wine as my indulgence, so I can enjoy it more without the side effects.

What are your top tips for recovering from jet-lag?

A good night’s uninterrupted sleep helps us feel the best version of ourselves. So I prioritise sleep in the night’s leading up to a flight. I also always bring sleep supports like an eye mask and noise cancelling headphones, which are great for the plane. If you need to wake or stay up later in a new time zone, getting outside in the sunshine can wake up your body and reduce the release of melatonin hormones that make you sleepy.

How do you maintain your fitness regime whilst travelling?

Exercise and movement is part of my life, and I’ve learnt how to fit it into my life, without being stuck in a gym. I always travel with the LDM Total Workout Kit, as it’s lightweight and portable, giving me the freedom to train. I do a mix of my own workouts via LDM On Demand workouts, join a live-streamed class, or create my own routine. When on holiday I have an interest in trying new activities. Staying active can be as simple as making an effort to walk and explore, sign up for a walking tour, opting to ride a bike through a new city, or even hiking or surfing.

What is your ultimate holiday indulgence?

It’s a combination of food, lie-ins, and having a free schedule!

Jessica Sepel Founder of JSHealth supplements

What are your top tips for recovering from jet-lag?

I take melatonin and a vitamin sleep formula during the flight and the first three nights of arrival. I drink two litres of water on the plane, with vitality drinks containing vitamin C, antioxidants, and collagen for hydration and energy. I have strictly no alcohol on the plane and the first night of arrival. I also avoiding all refined sugars during travel.

How do you maintain your fitness regime whilst travelling?

I use our JSHealth app for a 15-20 min workout daily. It features workouts from Australia’s top trainers; I mix between yoga, pilates, and HIIT.

What is your ultimate holiday indulgence?

Gelato, always! Specifically pistachio or hazelnut. The JSHealth philosophy is all about balance and indulgence is part of that – with moderation and mindfulness in mind.

What are your top tips for recovering from jet-lag?

Don’t take a nap when you arrive to a new destination, and try to accommodate the new time zone straight away. If you are going somewhere tropical, jump in the sea as soon as you arrive. That will revitalise you and eradicate your jet lag straight away.

How do you maintain your fitness regime whilst travelling?

I’d say my regime is more slow paced on holiday, but I do try to fit in a yoga session or hike, something not high intensity and pleasurable depending on where I’m travelling to.

What is your ultimate holiday indulgence?

Bellinis and chocolate cake!

Lucy Goff Founder of LYMA

What are your top tips for recovering from jet-lag?

For years jet lag wrecked my sleep, concentration, and left me feeling bloated. Our medical-grade LYMA supplement acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory which is effective at helping the body adjust to a new schedule and reduce cellular stress. The LYMA Laser is also a brilliant travel companion to ensure you get off the plane looking your best. I once used it all the way from London to LA and walked off the plane looking like I’d had a facial.

How do you maintain your fitness regime whilst travelling?

I wish I was one of those people who love exercise, but I’m yet to feel the buzz. Having said that, I realise the importance of making sure I incorporate exercise where I can into my daily routine. When I’m travelling for work, and get back to my hotel each evening, I put my headphones on and run up and down the emergency stairs for 15 minutes. It’s my James Bond moment!

What is your ultimate holiday indulgence?

I indulge on every level on holiday, immersing myself in the joy of getting away from it all. For me, the Maldives is magical: looking out onto nothing but the bluest sea, the softest sand, and indulging in the most delicious, freshest food that I don’t have to stand and cook.
