23 jet lag situations, from West +1 to East -1, are described here. I begin with the specific problems that may be encountered in each case, as well as a list of specific solutions. These solutions start with no-nonsense measures; go on to speeding up the adjustment using bright light and melatonin; then to sleeping pills; and, if nothing else works, to strong doses of caffeine and stimulants. I suggest you use a graduated, step-by-step response and to go to the next level only if you have an insufficient result. I will end with a few comments based on my own experience over the years as a traveller.

Keywords: Bright light, Caffeine, Fatigue, Launch window, Medium-duration sleeping pill, Melatonin, Modafinil, Sleeping pill, Nap, No-nonsense measure, Power nap, Practical, Preflight rescheduling, Short-duration sleeping pill, Sleepiness.
