Culture shock can be defined as the difficulty people experience when ajusting to a new culture that is significantly diffrent from their own. There are no fixed symptoms associated with culture shock as each individual reacts to the experience in his or her own way. However, the shock of moving to a foriegn country is often seen as consisting of distinct phases. There is often an initial period of enthusiasm and positive feeling, sometimes refered to as a 'honeymoon phase', followed by a period of growing frustration and anxiety. Over time, the newcomer enters a third phase, a period of ajustment, during which new coping skills are developed. Finally, there is a period of acceptence – the individual can operate in the new enviroment with ease.
There is no set way of aproaching the problem of culture shock. Evidence suggests that each person learns to cope with the transition in their own way. However, the unpleasant symptoms associated with the more difficult phases can be aleviated by a few simple measures: rest, good nutrition, and plenty of social contact.
