- Find an emotionally unloading activity
If you like to jog, keep doing it abroad. Well, if the weather doesn't allow it (too cold or too hot), think of something else. Gym workouts, swimming pool training, rock climbing, clay sculpting... ANY familiar or entirely new hobby that will take your mind off the negativity.Shock-Free Relocation: Is It Possible?
Completely avoiding culture shock is an unlikely scenario. It is much easier when you come for a limited period. The thought of going home one day prevents you from getting too deep into depression.
But there is a good side. The ability to adapt to new environments faster and less painfully can be trained like a muscle. You just need to travel more, stay in other countries for longer periods, and broaden your horizons. Remember that a second global relocation process is easier than the first one. The negative aspects of culture shock become milder and less lasting. And sometimes not noticeable at all.
