  • Jet lag disorder

    Jet lag is also known as time zone change syndrome or desynchronosis. Jet lag can occur when people travel rapidly from east to west, or west to east on a jet plane. It is a physiological condition which upsets our body's circadian rhythms - hence, it is classified as a circadian rhythm disorder. 

  • Jet lag disorder

    Jet lag symptoms tend to be more severe when the person travels from westward compared to eastward.

    Circadian rhythm - this is the 24-hour cycle in the biochemical, physiological and behavioral process of our bodies. In layman's terms, it means our body clock. The word circadian comes from the Latin word circa meaning "about", and the Latin word diem or dies meaning "day". 

  • Jet lag disorder

    Our circadian rhythms are driven by an internal time-keeping system. This biological clock is entrained by external environmental occurrences, such as the light-dark cycle of night and day. Put simply, our circadian rhythm regulates our daily activities, such as sleep, waking, eating and body temperature regulation. Problems readjusting our internal biological clock causes jet lag, as do problems with shift work, and some sleeping disorders.
