Wake up relaxed and refreshed when you book a Saskatoon hotel by the airport.

Everyone has a cure for fighting jet lag, whether it’s taking melatonin with plenty of water or customizing your sleep-wake rhythm.  However, those methods usually take days to be effective.

If you’re flying within Canada or from out of the country and only have a few days to explore the beautiful city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, our Saskatoon hotel offers these tips and tricks so you can get over your jet lag quickly.

1. Look for Saskatoon hotels near the airport

There’s nothing worse than arriving from a long flight and then having to worry about a long drive to your destination. This can be especially risky for the sleep deprived.

Whether you’re staying in Saskatoon or are visiting family or doing business around Saskatchewan, do yourself a favour by looking for Saskatoon airport hotels, where you can lay your head down soon after you disembark the plane.

2. Get moving

Exercise is important when trying to get over jet lag. According to fitness experts, a workout can actually help you reset your internal clock and resynchronize your body’s natural rhythms.

When looking to book accommodation, seek out Saskatoon hotels with pools and/or fitness centres? That way you don’t have to venture far to seek out some cardio. Swimming laps and other exercise can also help you with:

  • Exhaustion and fatigue
  • Dehydration
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Digestive issues
  • Nausea
  • Irritability
  • Incoordination

3. Stimulate your senses

A little known cure for jet lag is massage therapy. It not only relaxes tired and tight muscles, but stimulates parts of your body that help synchronize your circadian rhythm, which helps regulate sleep. A massage can also help stimulate your lymphatic system, which helps circulate nutrients to your vital organs and boosts your immune system.

If you can’t find or don’t have time to book a massage with a registered massage therapist, you can have some of the benefits by looking for Saskatoon hotels with a Jacuzzi. These jetted bathtubs can help ease muscle pain, improve circulation and reduce stress, which are all beneficial for getting over jet lag.


4. Eat a big breakfast

There are a number of foods that can help your body reset its biological clock and adjust to new time zones. Many of them contain the kind of vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates that help overcome fatigue and also manage digestive problems as well as high blood pressure and insomnia that come with travelling long distances.

Some include:

  • Whole grains such as oatmeal
  • Fruit such as berries, bananas, and kiwi
  • Eggs
  • Chamomile tea

Many of these foods are available at Saskatoon hotels with continental breakfast included in the price. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, but try to avoid caffeine and alcohol while you are getting over jet leg.
