How can NLP help you and travelers to minimize the effects of jetlag? 

In at least 4 NLP ways:


by not programming your mind for jetlag by readily accepting that you’ll have it before you board a plane.  Have you heard people saying ‘I’ll be jetlagged when I arrive‘?  Exactly the point!  The NLP principle that operates here is: if you say this to yourself before your journey, you’ll program your mind and body by your language and thoughts.  What you believe you will achieve, and energy follows thought. If you think ‘I’ll be jetlagged‘, you’ll unconsciously program yourself to be jetlagged.  Of course the body will be impacted by going through changes in altitude, geographical positioning, time zones, and longer periods of inactivity. But if you cannot completely eliminate jetlag, you most certainly can minimize its effect.  Your mind and belief systems have immense subtle power.  And it is exactly the subtlety of this power that many folks overlook.


by not allowing yourself to look at the watch in flight, nor convert the time at your destination to what the time would be at the place of your departure.  Example: if you fly from Toronto Canada to London UK, a) do not look at your watch at all in flight and b) do not think about what time it is in Toronto once you have landed in London.   A much better use of your energy is to concentrate on…


how you will fill the time between when you arrive and go to bed.  It’s a good idea to have things on the to do list and ticking them off by doing them, as long as they do not involve things that could endanger you, such as driving if you really do not feel like it.  The fact that you have things to do will program your mind and body to concentrate on doing them. That will inevitably divert your attention from the fact that you should be jetlagged. And it will not allow your body to switch off until you have finished the last thing.


by saying to yourself  ‘why should I have jetlag? Just because everyone else does?”.  Many energies impact us from our surroundings.  We often carry other people’s energies without realizing it. In the case of jetlag this translates into the fact that you take it on because it’s the done thing, because everyone else has it, so if you didn’t, you’ll be seen as weird.  Sounds laughable?  Maybe.  But that doesn’t alter the fact that it’s true.
