In a few days I will be getting Jet-lag. You may be wandering what jet-lag is. Well, it means that you have moved from one side of the world to one another and the time changes but your body time hasn’t changed.
“Wow, how does that work?” We’re flying from Auckland to Houston. The flight is 14 hours long, but the time in Auckland might 8am but the time in Houston is 3pm, they are 7 hours ahead of us (actually they are 17 hours behind us). When my Auckland body is ready for sleep it is really 3am on the morning. When it is wake-up time in Houston my body will think it is the middle of the night!
I don’t remember having jet-lag before but I think it will feel like this. If I have to wake up in the middle of the night but it is light it will feel weird, funny and I’ll be sleepy. I probably be grumpy.
I wonder if I’ll be hungry at the normal times? Don’t think I’ll get used to it easily. I’m guessing it will take me one or two weeks. Will my body get used to it quickly?
Does anyone have any tips for me?
