When you are homesick you are often looking for some familiarity to make you feel better. A trick I learned when I went to college far away from home (and now I do even if I am traveling for work) is to take yourself to the movies. It helps with a few things. It gets you of your house or hotel room so it stops you feeling so lonely. And cinemas worldwide are pretty much the same, you do the same thing, and so it feels very familiar. As a native English speaker it also helps that nearly all movie theatres no matter where you are in the world show films in English so that helps with the feeling of familiarity.

What You'll Need

  • Just a movie ticket!
  • some popcorn
  • And whatever snacks make going to the movies a familiar feeling

What You'll Do

  • go to the cinema
  • buy a ticket
  • Buy popcorn or whatever snacks you would usually have at home
  • Try and pick a funny movie so that you laugh which helps improve your mood
