Jet lag knocks off more than just your sleep cycles. Since I’ve been jet lagged the past few days I’ve had the chance to notice.
Your body temperature is higher during the day and lower at night. When you’re jet lagged, you’ll find yourself lying in bed trying to sleep when your body temperature is high. Everyone I’ve asked about it has remarked that, yes, when they’re jet lagged they remember throwing off all their covers because it’s so hot. You may also find yourself unable to bundle up enough to keep yourself warm during the day.
Check it out next time your sleep cycles are off.
Update: Yup, last night I kept kicking off all the covers while wide awake. Today I’m shivering in a warm room, barely awake.
