When travelling across a number of time zones normally by aircraft, your body clock will be out of sync with the destination time, as it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the normal rhythms and patterns to which it has grown accustomed.


Jet Lag - wikipedia

Jet lag, also jetlag or jet-lag, is a physiological condition which is a consequence of alterations to the circadian rhythm. Such disturbances result from shift work, daylight saving time, altered day length, or as the name implies, transmeridian travel as on a jet plane. They are known as desynchronosis, dysrhythmia, dyschrony, jet lag, or jet syndrome. The condition is generally believed to be the result of disruption.
