In this blog I have talked in more than one occasion about the stages people usually go through when living abroad. Personally, I think I'm pretty much past that process of adaptation, since it's already been more than three years since I left Spain. However, even if I'm used to live far from home, I'm still a human being and will get homesick from time to time.
What to do then?
There are many things that come to my mind to overcome homesickness. I found an article that gives five simple tips that can actually help. You can read it here: link.
And the tips are:
- Call home.
- Go visit home -- once.
- Go out with your college friends.
- Call a friend from back home.
- Get out of your room.
I recommend to pay special attention to 3 and 4. Going out and not hiding in your room is very important. What was the whole point of moving away from home? You didn't expect your life to be about staying in your room right? Then don't do so. Try to make plans and things will look a lot different. Remember that there are more people in the exact same situation!
Thanks for reading and see you soon!
