While there is no straightforward and easy way to beat jet lag, there are several ways that you can take to ease the pain of crossing multiple time zones quickly.
Travel wasn't that difficult on our
internal clocks, but each technological advancement in the world of
transportation has also brought changes to our time management. When
long-distance railroads were introduced matching timetables with local
times became a challenge. Son in 1883, we created a standardised time
The start of the jet age in 1958 gave birth to a new
