How to overcome a cultural shock! - Kako prevazići kulturni šok!



Prvi put dolazite u Peking i sve je veoma uzbudljivo na samom početku!  Veoma moderan grad sa nevjerovatno modernim okruženjem. Teško je opisati riječima oduševljenje.  
No, ubrzo vas spusti na zemlju prvi pokušaj komunikacije koji vam počne i buditi  prve frustracije, pa  čak i osjećaj bespomoćnosti, ne možete komunicirati, ili vas iznenade ljudi sa maskama oko vas te i druge  veoma drukčije kineske navike. Budimo realni došli smo na drugi kontinent, naravno, da će sve biti u najmanju ruku potpuno drukčije. Znali smo to i prije polaska i po našem dolasku. Ali, ipak, doživjeli smo kulturalni šok. Najvjerovatnije u prvoj sedmici, ili prvih 3 do 5 dana. 


Kako prevazići kulturni šok?


Vratimo se malo u našu bližu okolinu, nakon povratka  sa našeg godišnjeg odmora, ljetnog ili zimskog, na kojem smo bili 7 ili 10 dana u  susretu sa našom dobro poznatom sredinom u kojoj živimo često doživimo jednu vrstu šoka. Vraćamo se u neku našu realnost i blokirali smo, jer smo bili u potpuno drukčijem okruženju.  To je  sasvim normalno ponašanje, jer je našem tijelu potrebno neko vrijeme da obradi ili procesuira nove promjene. 

Prije mog dolaska u Peking veoma mnogo sam proučavala Kinu. Čitala sam sve što mi je došlo pod ruku, kako bih upoznala što više kulturu, tradiciju, historiju pa i sve ostalo. Moja priprema prije polazka mi je puno pomogla, jer sam znala, šta da očekujem i  bila sam spremna na neki način.  Iako sam osoba koja voli da se upusti u putovanja bez velike organizacije i pripreme te na licu mjesta se prepusti avanturi otkrivanja, ovaj put sam se  organizovala. 
Pripremiti sebe na činjenicu da na drugom kontinentu nećete vjerovatno pronaći možda prvih dana hranu koju preferirate u vašem okruženju, ali ćete imati priliku da upoznate i isprobate novu,  sličnu ili potpuno drukčiju.  Pa tako i sve ostalo. Ovakav stav vam omogućava da preskočite nekoliko stepenica  i jednostavnije se prilagodite. Naravno, veoma važna je  sposobnost prilagođavanja. Opustite se i pokušajte se prilagoditi koliko je više moguće.

Strpljenje, fleksibilnost i otvoreni um su stvari koje trebate razviti iznad prosjeka.  Ovim ćete obogatit svoj duh i svoju ličnost, prije svega.

English version


For the first time you come to Beijing and everything is very exciting at the very beginning! Very modern city with incredibly modern surroundings. It is difficult to describe  with words what you feel. But, soon with the first encounter with  communication may start first frustration and even you can feel your self  helpless, you cannot communicate, or you are surprised by people with masks around you and other very different Chinese habits. Let's be realistic, on the other continent, of course, that everything will be at least completely different. We knew this before our departure and after our arrival. But, nevertheless, we experienced a cultural shock. Most likely in the first week or received 3 to 5 days.

How to overcome a cultural shock?

Let's go back to our immediate surroundings, after returning from our annual vacation, summer or winter, where we were 7 or 10 days in a encounter with our well-known environment in which we life, we often experience a kind of shock. We come back to some  kind of our reality and blocked because we were in a completely different environment. This is quite normal behavior because our body needs some time to process new changes. Before I came to Beijing I studied China a lot. I read all that came under my hand, to get to know more about culture, tradition, history and everything else also.

My preparation before my departure helped me a lot because I knewed what to expect and I was ready in some way. Although I am a person who likes to travel without preparation and organization embarking on adventure of discovering, but this time I was very well organized.
Prepare yourself on the fact that on the other continent you will probably not find the foods you prefer in your environment for the first few days, but you will have the opportunity to meet and try new, similar or completely different. And so everything else. This attitude allows you to skip a few steps and make it easier to customize. Of course, the ability to adapt is also very important. Relax and try to adjust as much as possible.

Patience, flexibility and the open mind are the things that you need to develop above the average. This will enrich your spirit and your personality, above all.
