How Not to Let Your Blood Thin in 48 Hours in AZ

Years ago, when I lived in NY and occasionally had conferences in the Bay Area, I learned that — at least for short visits — the best way to avoid jet lag was by keeping the same hours as your original time zone.

So, for the 2-3 day visit, I’d go to sleep at 8 p.m. Pacific time (11 p.m. Eastern), and get up at 4 a.m. local time (7 a.m. Eastern).

How does that apply to a (very) brief trip to Arizona from Minnesota (I just got back).

Even though it was in the 50’s, I skipped the coat while I was there.

It may just be my imagination, but temp’s in the 20’s when I got back weren’t such a shock.

P.S.:  Anyone who doesn’t believe in acclimating should see Minnesotans when the mercury goes up to a “balmy” 25 after it’s been below zero for a few days (or longer).
