Every traveler knows how frustrating jet lag can be. By the time you get your energy back, you've missed out on a day or two of your trip. Even less fun is returning to work after a long trip feeling lifeless.

Jet lag is very common. It happens when your circadian rhythms, or your 24-hour wake-sleep schedule, suddenly doesn't match your environment. Your body thinks it's nighttime when your eyes say it's daytime. Fortunately, there is a solution.

Jet Lag Rooster helps you to get into the correct 24-hour cycle. It uses a scientific algorithm to help you adjust your circadian rhythm by suggesting when to expose yourself to light, or darkness.

Just input your trip details, including where your trip begins and ends, the times you're flying and your normal sleep schedule. It will also tell you the best times to nap if you need to. This prevents you from drifting off for a 30-minute nap that makes you feel even groggier than before.
