For the next 3 days after landing, practice these simple ‘yang’ activities to reset your body clock to the local time schedule and clear away the ‘yin’ energy accumulated during flying.
Nothing like stepping outdoors for some fresh air, soaking up sunshine to reset your body clock to the local time. Follow the daylight as much as possible and stay awake during the day time, stretching your bedtime until after dark. This will help your body produce the necessary hormones at the right time to stay alert and induce sleep when needed.
Drink plenty of filtered water and eat light, fresh and nutritionally balanced meals to rehydrate and cleanse your body after a long haul flight.
You can add to your water a drop or two of your favourite food grade essential oils: Citrus oils such as Mandarin, Grapefruit or Lemon are perfect to boost vitamin C intake and support detoxification, whilst Peppermint or Ginger are my go-to choices to help reduce bloating and readjust the digestive cycle to the local time schedule.
Diffuse essential oils to help reduce lethargy and drowsiness, anxiety, fear, anger, sadness and negative feelings that may arise from stress, separation or physical exhaustion.
Essential oils are ideal to spark up your mood, enhance concentration and promote relaxation.

Soothe aching muscles with a long warm shower, a relaxing bath, a foot, neck and shoulder massage – or better still get a nice AromaTouch massage for stress relief – I love adding a few drops of Lavender or Ice Blue blend into my dōTERRA Spa Blooming Bath Oil to help relieve tension headaches, sore back, neck and shoulders.
