1. Adjust your sleep schedule before you land

Shift your sleep and wake times closer to the time of your destination by 30-minute increments before you travel.

2. Wind down early on your first night of arrival

It's easy to get caught up in conversations or experiences, but your first night could set the tone for how you sleep during your travels. Don't stay up late.

3. Keep exercise in your plans

Whether it's long walks or bike rides, plan for movement during your travels. As long as it's not right before bedtime, exercise can help with sleep.

4. Be OK with less sleep

Don't get too worked up about your shifting sleep schedule if you're traveling for fun. Enjoy the moment and memories you're making.
