Dec 30th 2009 1:30PM I fly 150.000 to 200.000 miles a year and have done that for the last 20 years with at least 10 trips a year overseas (both Europe and Asia). I have found the best think to do is to set your watch to the time zone that I am flying to. If it is night where I am going then I will go straight to sleep. If it is daytime then I will stay awake. I have found this cutting the jet lag to a minimum. I totally agree with keep the curtains open all day and night to help your body deal with the change of time zone. I do not agree with the suggestion about sleeping during the day. The few times I have done that I have had to deal with jet lag for several days. Most of the time when I fly to Asia or Europe that I am expected to work the day after I arrive for 10 plus hours. I also agree with drinking plenty of water. I always bring a bottle that has a filter inside. I can then fill it up wherever I go as soon as I get through security.
