Battle the blues and strive for a better frame of mind
Time Out Dubai staff
What exactly is homesickness? Is it a form of depression? It can be compared to having the blues. When we feel homesick, we tend to have negative thoughts about ourselves and our circumstances, leading to feelings that we can only be happy if we are elsewhere. It is very different to being clinically depressed, as homesickness is a temporary altered mood and we can take steps to pull ourselves out of it.
What steps can we take to cope with these feelings and enjoy the place where we are?
We might not be able to go home to the people we love most, but we can make a choice to accept the here and now. These simple mood boosters will make a big difference:
Talk to someone about how you feel. Confiding in a friend will quickly improve your mood.
