Eat and Drink Wisely
You’re bound to feel jetlagged and bloated upon arrival if you indulge in unhealthy food and drink on your flight. Drink water or tea instead of soda, juice, or alcoholic beverages—alcohol will upset your sleep cycle. When you’re making food choices, remember that salt and sugar will dehydrate you, making jetlag worse and weakening your immune system. Nuts are typically a better option than the chips, cookies, or pretzels typically available. Or, avoid inflight offerings altogether and bring your own healthy snacks. (from Smarter Travel)

Bring salt pills if you are from an area that seldom gets hot and humid.

And I do thank you, because you're the one who told me about taking them!

It also helps if you can get a good nights sleep before traveling. This may be easier said than done but still worth a try.

But don't forget to stop at the Islander Bar in MIA as you await your little plane
