If you are coming from overseas or from more than a few time zones away, expect jet lag and a little culture shock. Get your body on the new schedule by drinking plenty of water, eating plenty of nutritious food, exercising, and resting. Avoid the temptation to nap the day of arrival or you may acclimate much slower!
Culture shock is a natural effect of being exposed to new lifestyles and values, so do not be surprised if you feel a bit impatient, confused, or anxious, or if you hit emotional highs and lows as you adjust.
Time usually takes care of it, but if any problems persist, consult with the Staff Liaison (see the List of Staff below) or get help from a counselor or physician.
