Travel, whether by air, sea, or land, involves a complex interaction of many disparate influences. Activities such as watching beautiful scenery or interacting with friends are perceived by most people as pleasant things to do, whereas sitting for hours in an airplane or waiting to retrieve luggage at an airport are generally seen as less pleasant, sometimes stressful activities. In this section, I will address the influence of jet lag, sleep deprivation, mood responses, and effects of travel on athletic performance.
