I’ve flown dozens of times per year for 10 years, and I have my travel tools & habits for everything, including jet lag. Timeshifter makes a bigger difference than anything I’ve done before. If I follow the advice, I can be at equilibrium in a day or two with a 9 hour time difference. Highly recommend!
In the past, traveling internationally always left me with almost debilitating jet lag that would last for a week, sometimes longer. As I prepared myself for an upcoming flight which would require 20+ hours of travel one way and a 9 hour time difference, I searched for the antidote to jet lag. Enter Timeshifter! Cautiously optimistic, I input my flight info. The app generated an easy to follow plan detailing when to go to sleep, when to wake up, when to nap, when to drink caffeine and when to avoid it. I also opted in for the melatonin usage, although the app indicates that melatonin isn’t required to avoid jet lag. I followed the plan to a T round trip and I am thrilled to report, I did not experience symptoms of jet lag. What? I’m still blown away. 10/10 would recommend if you are looking to avoid jet lag.
I like to make the most of my trips and like to be gentle, and rspect my body! I learned bout this app in a Harvard article and decided to try it. For this trip I was going from a 5 hour to a then 6 hour difference and then returning to my original time zone; EST, U.S. Followed the plan closely; I'd say I completed over 90% of the schedule, but did not follow completely and I experienced insignificant symptons of jetlag. I will use this over and over again!
Used the Timeshifter App to prepare for trip from USA to Uganda. 13 hr flight and 8 hr time change. Followed all the directions in the App including waking at 4 AM and getting a lot of light and small amounts of caffeine. Sleeping on the plane shortly after takeoff at 3 pm. IT WORKED! I had minimal to no noticeable jet lag. Actually felt energized and ready to start my adventures. I had traveled to Thailand a few years ago without Timeshifter and was noticeably jet lagged for 4 days. Highly recommend using Timeshifter.
I travel fairly regularly often across multiple times zones and have struggled with how to combat jet lag. I read about this app on the Points Guy website and thought I would give it a go on a recent short trip that would cross 10 time zones. Guess what? It worked! I’ve never felt as fresh or as productive on this type of trip. The recovery on my return was fantastic also. I particularly appreciate the regular notifications and easy to understand icons. My suggestions would be to include options for flight delays and for people who are shift workers to adjust the recommendations accordingly
I had the worst Jetlag on a trip to Europe a couple years ago and it was hard to enjoy the trip activities and upon planning my trip to Greece this year came across the recommendation of Timeshifter, so I was pretty skeptical because of how bad my Jetlag was previously. I signed up and followed the instructions and was pleasantly surprised and had insignificant Jetlag and was able to fully enjoy my trip! I’m using it again next month for a trip to South Africa and confident it will work again.
Love the app as it does help to get thinking about the time zone difference before flying and trying to do something about jetlag 'after' you arrive. Avoiding jetlag starts days 'before' you even fly and this app reminds me of that so I can take actions at an appropriate pre-departure time. When I land and hit the ground I am in better shape if I have followed the guidance.
I traveled to Africa from the US & Timeshifter was very helpful! Dorf 1947
I recently traveled to and from Eastern India from San Diego. (Yes I did.) This is the second time I have used the Ap. I do my best to follow the suggestions, which is what is encouraged. Jet lag has been minimal and I am so grateful to not feel lousy when arriving so far from home. I highly recommend when you are changing multiple time zones. Personal response has been excellent!!!! 👍👍
We had a friend who used it and recommended it, so we gave Timeshifter a shot. We followed the guidelines (easy to understand) and didn’t miss a beat on our vacation (9hr. time difference). This tool is as important as a piece of luggage.
