In brief: Several

I try to sleep on the plane as much as possible since you are missing sleep going east.
But then it is hard to fall asleep on return since your body thinks its earlier. Try some melatonin, which is the body's rythym hormone. Keep the lights off at night to induce sleep and very bright in the as (i like a dawn simulator) avoid alcohol and drugs.
