Submitted 2019-01-05 11:51:29 Whether traveling for work or leisure , often or just every once in a while, sleep and new locations seems to be a bad combination for many people. Many factors can impact your body's circadian rhythm, and when you travel to a different time zone, getting a good night鈥檚 sleep can be a struggle.
Luckily, jet lag isn't a new phenomenon, so scientists and ordinary people alike have devised several tips and tricks to help overcome it. Even though you might not have as great of a sleep as at home on your cool memory foam mattress, here are a few tips you can try.
To ensure a better night's sleep, plan ahead so your body has time to adjust to the time zone of your destination. Three days before your flight leaves, you should adjust your bedtime to suit the time zone of your destination better. If you're going to a place where you'll lose time, go to bed an hour earlier and go to bed later if you'll be gaining time. It can take a day or longer for your body to naturally adjust to each time zone you skip. So, for every time zone that you鈥檒l be traveling over, adjust your sleep schedule by an hour every night before the trip.
Find an Accommodating Hotel
When most people are booking a hotel, they might look for free breakfast, premium cable television, or an Olympic-size pool. For business travel in particular, you should look into the sleep amenities of the hotel. Some hotels will offer things like blackout curtains, eye covers, a selection of pillows, and even a memory foam mattress king size.
Go Towards the Light
A core component of a good night's sleep is exposing yourself to light. It's how the body knows when to start shutting down and when to wake up naturally. When in a new destination, you should try and get as much light as possible during the late morning and early afternoon hours. Even if it feels like it's still 8 p.m. based on your home time zone, this extra light should help re calibrate your internal clock and help keep you awake until bedtime. Just be mindful to avoid blue light from electronics late at night, as these can keep you awake and cause troubles sleeping.
Adapt to Your Environment
When you get to your destination, try and sync up with the local time and sleep habits. If you arrive at 9 in the morning yet it's 3a.m. home time, do your best to stay awake for the rest of the day to better sync up. You can try taking a shower or changing your clothes if you're struggling to stay awake, and 20-minute power naps also prove helpful for some travelers. Consider sleeping on the plane to your destination so you鈥檙e more awake when you land and can hit the ground running.
If Only There for Two Days or Less, Stick to Your Schedule
In relation to the previous tip, if you鈥檙e only going to be at your destination for 48 hours or less, such as for a quick business trip, you should stick to your normal waking and sleeping schedule, if possible. It typically takes around two days to adjust to a different time zone, so by the time you would have adapted to the time zone, it would already be time to head home. Try and schedule meetings and other obligations during your peak waking hours to ensure productivity and alertness.

How to customize your Tablet Z:
You can move icons and set your wallpaper as usual. However, Sony also offers some convenient customization options that you will not find on other devices. First, you can access designs by tapping the plus icon in the top right corner. These themes change the overall picture of your device with a single touch. You can also add four of the most used apps or important folders to the Quick Launch bar at the top of the screen, which can save a lot of time.
How to use it as a TV Remote:
Your XPERIA Tablet Z has an infrared (IR) blaster that works great as a TV remote. You'll find that it's compatible with most televisions, DVD or Blu-ray players, and even cable set-top boxes. It's a good idea to place your tablet near the device you want to connect during initial setup. You simply start the remote control application, select Add Device, and enter the appropriate information. With the small TV remote you can change the channels without interrupting activities on your tablet. If it's not preinstalled, you may also want to download Sony's TV SideView app, which provides you with a complete program guide and additional information about what you are seeing.
How to kill the Lag:
With a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor you expect a reasonable performance and you will not be disappointed, but you may need to remove some widgets to get them. Sony's pre installed Home Screen Widget Collection has a big impact - removing it will make you realize that navigation is noticeably smoother. While the Sony user interface has some nice details, there is an animation, and some people like an Android setup or custom ROM that includes some of Sony's best features.
