There may be masses of unusual troubles you will encounter during your voyages. Do not give up your fancy to travel. You will travel. I assure you. I dedicate this blog category to help and assist travelers or travel lovers around the globe. I am a very experienced traveler and therefore, I am aware of advantages and disadvantages of traveling. From the psychological point of view, travelling may be very appropriate for some types of people. Sometimes traveling may be even dangerous for people who have no adaptational skills. Do you belong to the group of people who feel at home wherever they are? If you don’t belong to this type of travelers, you should doubtless check my list of tips that will help you to adapt to any place
1) LOOK UP NEW ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS
There are different types of countries. It is very popular to divide all countries into two major categories. First of them is a category of countries that belong to the developed world and the second category is countries that belong to the third world (uncivilized countries). No doubts, that there are numerous differences between these countries. The developed world offers you more opportunities and abilities for self-development and successful business. There are tons of other advantages which may be accessible to you in your new country. Some of them are good climate, kind and generous people, and other benefits. It is really silly to be enormously patriotic and close your eyes on disadvantages of your native country.
Carefully look and identify what new advantages and benefits do you see in your new country. There may be tons of positive sides and you need to be conscious of them in order to value and respect your new country. As soon as you understand that your new country is more advantageous and valuable for you, you will easily adapt to your new place.
2) BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Every success begins in your mind. You should be sure that you have enough confidence and strength in order to adapt to a new country. Being pessimistic and negative won’t help you in this situation. I am aware of the fact that there are some extremely emotional and sentimental people in the world. For those people, adaptaion will be the biggest and the most complicated task. These people have a lot of emotional attachments in their own homeland and therefore they will always miss it. For those who hate their homeland, adaptation will go very smoothly. Believe in your strength and you will surely find some patience to adapt to a new country.
3) FIRST THREE MONTHS ARE THE MOST DIFFICULT
Usually, it is very difficult to adapt to a new country but this state of affairs does not last too long. By my own experience, I know that it takes maximally three months in order to fully adapt to a new country. These first months you may feel extremely uncomfortable. Usually, you may have thoughts to return back. What should you do on this occasion? You should remember that this discomfort and situation are temporary and it will end up soon. Every change is connected with stress. Stress in this situation is unavoidable. Usually, when I arrive at a new country, in the beginning of my trip I feel some motivation to return back. In this situation I force myself to be sober and I endeavor to remember that this discomfort will end after a couple of months. Remember this fact and know that after nearly three months your psychological condition will change and you won’t agree to return to your native country. Typically, after two or three months, an adaptable person feels at home in a new country. However, this rule may not be applicable for each person. There are some people that claim an ideal adaptation period to be at least six months. I do agree with this statement and for some people, six months may be the ideal timeframe to adapt to a new country.
4) MAKE SOME FRIENDS
It is tremendously essential for you to make new friends in a new country. Try to befriend as many people as possible and do it as quickly as possible. Spend some of your free time communicating with your new friends. You will see that new emotional connections will start growing and it will become very easy for you to adapt to your new country. Befriending with people in a new place is necessary for a couple of serious reasons. In a foreign country, you will need some people to assist and help you when you have some troubles. It is impossible to live a lonely life abroad. At the same time we are social creatures and therefore we need to have live human communications from time to time.
Having new friends will simplify your adaptation process.
5) TREAT LOCAL PEOPLE VERY WELL
It is necessary for you to remember that you are a foreigner. Be good and friendly with local people and show them your respect. Having problems with locals is not the best thing for a traveler to have. Living in a city is easier because there are lots of dissimilar foreigners in cities. Local people do not pay too much attention to foreigners who live in megapolises and cities. Though, a stranger in a rural area may seem very suspicious for locals. I have experienced this problem myself. What is a lifestyle of people who live in villages? Usually, these people are very simple and naive. Everyone in a village knows each other. Every foreigner is a potential suspect.
I do not advise you to live in rural areas because of the reasons I have listed above. Being polite and nice with local people will let you prevent all possible problems.
6) CONTINUE DOING THINGS THAT YOU WERE DOING AT YOUR HOME
This is one of the most effective methods which will let you easily adapt to a new country. Every one of us has hobbies and personal interests. Do not give up sticking to them even when you are out of your native land. If you enjoy reading, take some of you free time and continue enjoying this activity in your new place. You have a lot of chances to find yourself new hobbies. There may be many things available for you in your new place of residence.
Adaptation may be every easy for professional travelers who are familiar with this process. Nonetheless, newbies may encounter some difficulties when they are in a new place. Be always confident and believe in your strength and ability to adapt to a new place. You will certainly pass through this inconvenience with ease.
