Jet Lag

The state of being unadjusted to a new time zone. One generally experiences jet lag after traveling rapidly over a brief period of time. For example, if one flies from Oklahoma to Bahrain, one is likely to experience jet lag because of the eight-hour time difference. Jet lag is a common result of travel for international business.
