Sleeplessness (insomnia) is a common sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall or stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep. It’s particularly common when travelling across time-zones, where you may still feel tired when you wake up and experience lower energy levels.
Stress: Concerns about work, school, health, finances or family can keep your mind active at night, making it difficult to sleep.
Travel: Your circadian rhythms act as an internal clock for all parts of you. Disrupting these rhythms can lead to insomnia. Common disruptions include jet lag from traveling across multiple time zones, working a late or early shift or frequently changing shifts.
Poor sleep habits: These can range from stimulating activities before bed, a new environment and blue light from screens (phones, tv, tablet, etc) before bed.
Eating too much late in the evening: Eating too much may cause you to feel physically uncomfortable while lying down as well as experience heartburn or indigestion which can keep you awake.
The right amount of sleep varies from person to person, but most adults need seven to eight hours a night. When you don’t catch your zzz’s, you might experience:
Minimize pre-travel stress (not always helpful advice, we know); pack travel accessories like pillow, sleep mask, earplugs, etc.

Taking malaria medication before going to South Africa provided my wife and me with a level of comfort that really enabled us to enjoy our 5-day safari. We felt protected the entire time we were out exploring the amazing Sabi Sands Game Reserve!

The motion sickness patches were very helpful since we were staying on a small sailboat; I don’t think my brother would have been able to keep a meal down if not for them.

I was having the best time in Mexico until I got an awful stomach bug. Thankfully, I had brought my own medication with me so I didn’t have to deal with language barriers and a local pharmacy. After a quick recovery day, I was still able to enjoy the rest of my trip.
