Depending on where you are travelling from, you will probably pass through several time zones before you arrive in Montreal.


Most people who travel far experience a condition called jet lag. When you suffer from jet lag you will feel tired (often at the wrong time of day), you might not be very hungry and it can be very difficult to fall asleep at night.

Jet lag affects people differently and you might not feel it very much. But generally, it takes 1 day to adjust for each time zone you have travelled. This means if you have travelled from Asia, it can take over a week for your body to fully adjust to being in Canada.

The best cure is to take it easy and try to get up and go to bed on “Montreal time” – even if this means you sometimes feel very tired during the day.
