Jet Lag: Good for Students

Ok, that title isn’t really true. Not even a little bit.  Actually, jet lag is not good for anyone – it can disrupt sleep cycles, make you cranky and cause memory loss.

I know a little something about jet lag because I run an organization that chases stories around the world, trains many hundreds of leadership students from at least four continents, and I have sampled more pillows than any normal person should. Over a period of 12 busy weeks this past season, I found myself in 14 different countries. So jet lag, for better or for worse, has become my partner!
