I find you should always LIVE in the timezone you're in, so making sure you stay awake until your natural bed time and set your alarm for the same time you normally get up. Making sure your routine always stays the same whatever timezone you're in is the perfect cure!

Doesn't always work for me. It really depends whether you're going form East to West or vice versa. It also requires that you force yourself to do this several nights in a row.
