Summer sleep guide

On the plane: Chair sleeping

Problem: Can't sleep sitting upright

On the plane: Out of sync

Problem: Suffering from jet lag

Solution: On a long-haul flight, set your watch at your destination's time to help you get in the right mindset and sleep accordingly.

Try not to doze off at all if you're arriving at night and if you land in the morning, avoid daytime naps, and try to match your 'bedtime' to an hour appropriate to the local time.
