How To: Avoid Jet Lag While Studying Abroad
It’s almost too easy. Yesterday (which is still today for anyone in the USA) my plane touched down in Frankfurt, Germany. I’m studying in Bonn, Germany for a month.
One of my Europe-seasoned cousins gave me one bit of advice to cope with the nine hour time change:
Don’t sleep while you’re traveling.
Simple as that. I pulled the equivalent of an all-nighter across the world. I woke up at 7:00 am PST and went to sleep 30 hours later, the next day at 9:00 pm whatever-Germans-call-their-timezone (GMT 1:00).
And it worked. Right now I’m wide awake and it 7:30 am. I don’t think I’ve been awake this early in a year.
Over and out.
