Jet lag is good thing for me. Whenever in US, or back to Shanghai, jet lag drives me wake up earlier and then I became an early raiser for some days. Thus I have enough time to write more blogs (helping me to get clearer idea about my world, and comprehend the message I got). It is just like an effective “Raise Early” medicine. But the problem is, the effect gets less significant along the day, and I will fade into normal life.
Is there any way to simulate jet lag?
Early riser, maybe, but the flip side is you may fall asleep in early evening. In fact, I just retuned to Shanghai from LA a week ago. Almost every night during the last week, I fell so sleepy by 6 or 7 PM and I had to hit the hay only to wake up the next morning anywhere from 1 to 4 AM. It takes about two weeks for my biological clock to syncronize with the local time. I’m leaving for LA again next Wed. It’ll be interesting to find out how soon I will readjust to biological clock to California time.
Yes. That is the side effect. It is actually good. Can I translate it to this: If you stick to sleep at 7 pm, you are an early raiser?
Go to sleep at 7pm may requires “dispelling”. I always “enjoy” the first day back to the States from China… it is the Extra Day! I am normally a late night person… 2am to 9am sleep time is what I call “normal”. Jet lag never made me a earlier riser… my nephew did. He jumped into my bed before he went to school at 7:30 in the morning after I arrived Shenzhen around the midnight the day before. I could be a little “cloudy” for a few days. What really make me a earlier riser is Microsoft. The meetings with MS teams always start at 7:45am! That’ll do.
Does Microsoft guys started so early? I never had that early meeting in my 7 years in Microsoft with the Redmond team – they tend to ask us to wake up early to have meeting starting at 8:00 AM Shanghai time, instead of having meeting at 9:00 PM Shanghai time.
I’ve been going up there since last Oct… once a month pretty much so far. And every time the meeting started at 7:45am. It could be because that we always had full day sessions… or maybe they are just “mean” to us “visitors”. They (meetings) do get off at 4pm for sure.
