WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Here at BUNAC HQ we thought that we would help you out with the issue of jet lag, especially as most of our destinations have such different time zones. Read on for some tips on preventing and dealing with jet lag.
We’ve all been there, you arrive in a totally new country and you’re armed and ready with your ‘to see’ list. Then the dreaded jet lag sets in and next thing you know two days have passed and you have crossed nothing off that list. Don’t let jet lag ruin the beginning of your amazing experience on one of our programmes, especially if you have a short time before you have to begin working.
Jet lag occurs when we cross into different time zones and our body’s 24 hour clock is disrupted, which causes our sleeping patterns, appetite and bowel habits to be affected, to name but a few. It can take a while for your body to adjust to the new time zone and adjust to your new routine.
Although you can’t prevent jet lag from occurring, here are some quick tips from members of the BUNAC team that they have found helpful in reducing jet lag:
Some of the experienced travellers in the office have shared some quirky tips that they use to defeat jet lag for when you arrive in the new time zone. See if any of these could work for you:
We hope that these tips from the BUNAC team will be helpful the next time you are suffering from jet lag. Check out some of our other blogs for travelling tips and travel stories from past BUNACers.
