English vocabulary in the news: Jet lag

I’ve been feeling a bit strange since I got back to the UK. I feel tired often and have some difficulty sleeping. This is probably because I spent so long in Indonesia, which is in a different time zone to the UK. My body still wants to go to sleep at what would be night time in Indonesia.

We call this kind of feeling ‘jet lag’. I spotted ‘jet lag’ in this article over the weekend, too. It seems that jet lag is one of the leading causes of sickness on vacation. I guess I’ll have to remember to get plenty of exercise and eat healthily until I have overcome my jet lag.
