Dealing homesickness during lifeguard training period or outstation job.

Most teens attending lifeguard training or doing lifeguard summer job outstation do face this problem. It is all normal. here are few tips to handle homesickness:

# 1 Call Home, Friends back home, Relatives back home: This is really one of the best tips whenever you feel homesick try to talk to someone from back home. It will help you change your mood and you will feel supported.

# 2 Go visit home:  Visiting home can be a great way to recharge yourself and get some of that TLC (not to mention home cooking) that you need. But going home too often can frequently make homesickness worse. Let yourself go home when you need it, but make sure it doesn't turn into an every-weekend occurrence.

# 3 Get out of your room. It's incredibly easy to hide in your room in college. But doing so prevents you from meeting new people, trying new things, and experiencing college life in general. You didn't go to school to hide in your room, right? Make sure to spend large chunks of your time out of your room -- even if it's just at a campus coffee shop, the quad, or the library -- and get your mind on other things. You never know what might happen, but you do know that it won't happen if you're alone in your room all the time.
