Are you feeling a little down and missing home? I have a few tips and tricks for you!
I had a really hard time moving away from home. The biggest advice I can give you is just understanding that it is a normal feeling and a lot of other students are struggling with homesickness as well. Missing home does not mean you are "weak" it simply means you miss your friends, family, pets, home, or even just a familiar place.
One tip would be to try to keep your mind busy. Hangout with your friends and surround yourself with positivity. I have found that once classes startup, you will be busy with homework and studying so that will also ease your mind a bit and not give you as much time to think about being home. Call home often to talk to your family and always keep in touch with your friends from home. I remember when I was struggling with homesickness, facetiming my family helped a lot and being able to see my pets.
Keep reminding yourself that this is the start of an AMAZING chapter in your life and you WILL accomplish so many amazing things!
