Keep These 5 Things In Mind While Living Abroad

Keep These 5 Things in Mind While Living Abroad - Expat Reminders [PetiteAdventures.org]

You’re not in Kansas anymore

You moved abroad to experience a new country and culture, so it’s fruitless to spend all your time comparing it to home. This can be difficult at times, but it’s important to remember to appreciate the differences, no matter how frustrating they may be at the time.

Be Open and Live Outside of Your Comfort zone

You will have much more fun if you try new things and step outside of your comfort zone. Whether that’s joining a new club, making a new friend, or trying a new food, you will have a much better experience if you push your boundaries.

You’re not alone

Sometimes it can feel like you’re the only expat feeling one way or another, or dealing with one problem or another, but you’re not. Reach out to your local expat community, I can guarantee that someone else has been there, done that, or felt that way, and it can be really helpful to have someone who’s been there help you navigate the course.

Give Yourself a Break

Living abroad is incredibly hard, it can be lonely, tiresome and you might feel like you’re floundering, but trust me – you’re doing so much better than you think!

Have fun, eat all the food, and enjoy every second

Whether you’ve moved for six months, a year or three, remember that time flies, so enjoy every second of your time abroad.
