If you have ever moved to a different country, you have probably experienced culture shock. I know I have. Culture shock is the unexpected impact that comes from living a new life in a different environment with people from different cultural backgrounds. It can cause a lot of anxiety and frustration. But once you learn how to adapt to your new life, you can see how culture shock is good for you. Check out the infographic below to learn more:

5 thoughts on “Why Culture Shock Is Good For You”
It frankly is scary
It’s a great infographic! I think that the first time you move somewhere, you experience the strongest cultural shock. After that you get more resilient with every further move. Of course, a lot depends on what kind of person you are (introvert vs extravert), what country you moved to, etc. I think the greatest part about the shock that it pushes you forward and you discover a lot about who you are and what you can do. Thank you for the post!
This is great! Culture shock always feels so hard, but I agree that once you get over the initial struggles, you learn a lot from it!
