Let me dumb it down to a situation, since the others have already gotten the literal definition. For example, you took a flight from New York to California at around 7:00 pm. You arrive in California 4 hours later, so you feel as if it is 11:00 pm, but really, In California it is only 8:00 pm. The feeling of sleep and not being able to keep up with time is jet-lag.

It means when someone flies in a jet plane to a different time zone, it takes them awhile to catch up to the change. The is called a lag.

It's like when you're on a plane off to a different country or someplace else where it'll take a while to get to, the time zone is different so you get tired because (example) it's morning there when it's night at your original place.
