10 (maybe) ways to deal with Homesickness in Australia

As promised, I will share with you 10 (maybe) ways I deal with homesickness.

I hope it works for you too!

  1. Go to Starbucks.

Yes, we hear this more often than not, but doing something spontaneous especially when you are missing home is such a great way to feel closer to home.

Here are 9 other ways I deal with homesickness:

  1. Become involved in your community.
  2. Exercise. Seriously. Do it.
  3. FaceTime your family and friends regularly.
  4. Join the fan club for a major sport. Go Cats!
  5. Try new restaurants… Seriously! Australia has the best cuisine imaginable.
  6. Mediate.
  7. Join clubs or forums.
  8. Go shopping early because the shops close relatively early. I am not joking.
  9. Acceptance. It’s okay to feel homesick. Watch Pride and Prejudice, cry, and enjoy a nice slice of chocolate cake.

Now that I’ve shared my personal secrets to dealing with homesickness, what are your tips?
