Baby your body clock
It might be hard to imagine anything helping on a day when I crossed nine time zones on a recent trip to Europe. But the goLITE BLU from Philips worked wonders in fending off jet lag. The portable light box has 66 LED bulbs that emit a soft, diffused light that helps you adjust your body clock even before you leave. The low-intensity blue light slowly alters your body's production of melatonin (the "nighttime" hormone), thereby reducing or eliminating the effects of jet lag. The unit comes with international travel adapters and is available for $279 at lighttherapy.com or by calling 800-545-9667. Or keep an eye out for it at Target, Brookstone, and Amazon.com.
