Global Wellness Summit Looks to Fight Jet Lag

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) is looking to help its attendees fight jet lag. The event has announced that all delegates attending its 2019 conference in Singapore this October will receive a one-year subscription to the Timeshifter jet lag app. The app, which is already deployed by Six Senses for guests visiting their resorts, was developed with scientists and is based on research in sleep and circadian neuroscience.
“Timeshifter tackles the underlying cause of jet lag by literally helping you shift your biological clock to a destination’s time zone quickly—and, counterintuitively, this may even mean NOT sleeping on a long-haul flight,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chairman and CEO. She said that the app’s algorithm works to reset a traveler’s circadian clock through timed light exposure and, optionally, the right dose, type and timing of a melatonin supplement. 
“Circadian neuroscience is at the heart of jet lag management and, even though airlines and hospitality brands are doing a great job helping consumers prioritize sleep and wellness, most are still unaware of jet lag science, and, as a result, their advice, products and services are based on the wrong assumptions,” said Mickey Beyer-Clausen, co-founder and CEO at Timeshifter. 
Timeshifter was developed with Dr. Steven Lockley, an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Lockley is an expert in circadian rhythms, sleep and jet lag and has helped NASA astronauts, Formula 1 drivers and Olympic athletes perform at their best when traveling.
The GWS said that it recommends its delegates set up their flights in Timeshifter four to five days prior to departure so a pre-adjustment period can begin.
