One of the latest theories from scientists is for two sleep periods a night broken by an hour or so of activity. The study emphasises that each sleep period needs to be long enough for you to reach REM sleep.
‘Cat napping’ for half an hour during the day is also useful to help give a quick recharge to your batteries and will help to combat stress but is not considered a substitute for a good night of sleep.

The combination of time zone differences and high intensity meetings soon after landing can be quite debilitating.
