Upon arrival in Italy, the initial excitement may cause participants to overlook the strain on their bodies from the long flight and time changes. It is highly recommended that participants immediately begin to follow the sleeping patterns of the new time zone.
If participants arrive during the day, they should do their best to wait until evening before going to bed. If they arrive late at night, they should try their best to rise in the morning with everyone else. Also, participants should make sure to hydrate themselves with water after the long flight. Hydration is an important part of overcoming jet lag more quickly.
