As a travelling nurse, you know that a temporary living arrangement is just part of the job. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the comforts of home while you’re on assignment. With a little creativity and effort, you can create a space that feels welcoming and personalized. Here are 10 tips for making your short-term stay feel like home:

  • Bring familiar items from home: Pack a few items that will make you feel more comfortable, such as your favorite pillow, a cozy blanket, or a picture of your loved ones.

  • Decorate your space: Hang some artwork, add a few decorative pillows, or bring in some plants to brighten up your space.

  • Create a routine: Establish a routine that includes activities you enjoy, such as cooking a meal, going for a walk, or reading a book.

  • Connect with your community: Join a local gym, take a class, or attend a community event to meet new people and get involved in your new community.

  • Personalize your space: Bring in some personal touches, like family photos or your favorite books, to make your space feel more like home.

  • Make your bed cozy: Invest in some high-quality bedding and pillows to make your bed feel more luxurious and comfortable.

  • Cook your own meals: Instead of relying on takeout, cook your own meals using fresh ingredients. This will save you money and help you maintain a healthy diet.

  • Create a relaxing atmosphere: Use candles, essential oils, or a sound machine to create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in your space.

  • Stay organized: Keep your space tidy and organized to reduce stress and make it easier to relax and unwind.

  • Embrace your surroundings: Explore your new surroundings, try new things, and embrace the adventure of living in a new place.
