Development of our society inevitably requires its members frequent airborne travels to other countries and 24 hour services. However, these situations are not familiar to human beings as they have dwelt on earth at a relatively fixed area and as a diurnal species for a long time. Consequently, many problems ensue and, sometimes, those cannot be solved by themselves. In addition, a growing number of people confront such difficulties year by year. This review deals with the pathophysiology and the coping strategies that are related to such situations, that is, of the jet lag syndrome and the shift work sleep disorder.
