Jet lag

July 2022

We all have an internal body clock which controls our circadian rhythms. This becomes disrupted when you travel to different time zones.

Find out what causes jet lag and what you can do to minimise jet lag.

See also Jet lag: what if you can’t fly first class?, an ABC interview about jet lag with the Woolcock’s Professor Ron Grunstein AM from July 2022.
