HOW TO STUDY ABROAD AND NOT MISS HOME
When you are studying in a foreign country, you often feel homesick. How should you deal with it?
You get homesick when you are lonely and unoccupied. You start thinking about your family and want to go back. But you surely left the country for a reason, so focus on making good use of your time away from home. Think of it as an opportunity to learn more and to change your life for the better.
Putting your feelings down on paper can help you understand them. In that way you will discover what makes you feel so bad, whether it’s the fact that you don’t have your cat with you or the food doesn’t smell like at home. When you have realized that, you can do something to feel better, for example, find a shop that sells food from your country.
Whether it’s the accommodation that you share, a party that you go to, a club or a social get-together, you have lots of opportunities to meet different people. Talk to them, share ideas, see if you have common interests. It’s easier to forget your worries with good company around.
Don’t forget to take with you family photos or a favourite mug, sleep shirt or pillow. When you start missing your family and familiar places, you’ll have a little bit of home with you. It’s not the same as being at home, but it helps.
Nowadays there are many communication options so make good use of them. Contact your relatives and old friends regularly. Tell them about your studies. Share your feelings and new experiences with your loved ones.
Engage in extra activities in your spare time, preferably some kind of outdoor activity. It can be a sport, leisure activity or another thing you particularly like doing in your free time. So, follow your old hobby or take up a new one – whatever you choose, try to keep yourself busy.
When you are abroad, you can often find yourself in risky situations. First of all, to avoid problems, stay away from bad company. If you want to try something dangerous, like extreme sports, don’t do it on your own. And always have your mobile with you in case of emergency.
