Rila Thomas Staff asked 2 months ago

I am the eldest in the family and have three younger siblings. I love my family dearly, but now that I am in college and living away from home, I find myself feeling really homesick. I miss my parents and siblings and I even find myself missing the family pet. How can I deal with this homesickness?

I am sorry that you have to go through this feeling. I have some tips that might help you ease your homesickness.

First, try to stay busy. When you have free time, instead of moping around and thinking about home, try to do something fun or productive. This will help take your mind off of things and make the time go by faster.

Second, keep in touch with your loved ones. Make sure to call or video chat with them often. Seeing their faces and hearing their voices will help make you feel closer to home.

Lastly, try to find some things that remind you of home. This could be anything from a certain food to a picture of your family.
