The impact of an implementation intention to improve mealtimes and reduce jet lag in long-haul cabin crew

This study evaluates whether an implementation intention intervention can be used to reduce the degree of jet leg experienced by long-haul crew and improve alertness via the alteration of mealtimes after a long-haul trip. A randomised controlled trial is conducted with sixty long-haul crew members; the two conditions are implementation intention to eat regular meals on days off vs. no implementation intention. The results show that mealtimes can be used to alleviate jet lag in long-haul crew, and that implementation intention can be used to promote a change in mealtimes consistent with impact of implementation intentions on other aspects of behavior.
