It is difficult to keep up with the many travel related apps being released almost daily. But according to University of Michigan researchers, the new app Entrain, actually helps minimize jet lag.
The effects of jet lag have been shown to be reduced by taking proactive steps, such as altering your sleep patterns or exposing yourself to sunlight. Doctors have long believed that exposure to light is key. A master biological clock, called circadian rhythm, regulates when we become sleepy and when we are more alert. When you travel across time zones, that body clock must reset itself.
Entrain calculates the optimal sleep and lighting cycles to help you regain rest in your new time zone to reduce the effects of jet lag.
