How to Adjust in a New City:
Every year several people move to a new city not always willingly, for further education, job opportunities and other tons of reasons. At first it’s scary especially when we have no relatives in that city, feeling of homesickness arises now and then. This is how to deal with it:
- Arrange your belongings
The first and foremost thing we should do is to arrange our stuff in the new place as per the necessity. This will reserve our time and not let the feeling of loneliness arise. Solution to a bad mood is cleaning, it is a win-win situation as our place gets cleaned as well as mood improves.
- Make new friends
Friends in a new city are like new family members added in that city, as we are away from family and cannot meet them now and then they are the one playing the role of family. Our most of the time is spent with our friends or roommates. Hence, always have good relations with those people as they will be first to reach us when needed.
- Discover the shops nearby
Explore places, have a look at nearby medicals, stationary, general store and the other required stores so when in need you can head over without wasting time in searching. And the most important thing to note is the current price of goods, the travelling fares etc from people around. This will prevent you from getting cheated.
- Join Communities
There are several communities operating in cities. Join the one which interest you the most. This will keep you engaged as well as enrich your skills.
- Stay connected to your loved ones
Always be in touch with your loved ones especially family members. Interact with them regularly, as you feel lonely far from them they do feel the same. Hence a call can overcome the all such issues.
- Seek your passion
Its been months, the city is no more new,the routine has become boring!
Yes, this stage might also come on one’s life, to deal with this situation there is an immense need to seek our passion. Try new stuff, whatever comes in mind. Some people find it early for some it takes time, so have patience and keep on moving. When found, follow it I promise this will never let you feel bored.
- Work on yourself
Observe your lifestyle and make notes on where your time is wasted and how you can make the best use of that. Some of the cool stuff you can be engaged:
- Take a course in the field of your interest
- Get training in a particular sport of your interest
- Join an NGO or something that engages you in social work
- Work on a project which enhance your skills.
And much more…
“Life is a race, if you will be slow people will step on you and move forward” a very popular line from the movie 3 idiots horrifies one’s mind whenever one moves out in a new city for studying or job purpose due to a lot of pressure on him/her. Few sustain it and reach great heights and the others commit suicide due to failure. Pressure dominates a few but use it to get the best version of you. I would like to quote “always give your 100% at work and leave the rest to the luck”.
