To create balance while being abroad,
a rule of thumb is:
To spend one third of your time in the
Comfort of your In-Group,
one third of time Learning with an Out-Group,
and one third of time with yourself for Integration.
The Art is to avoid getting stuck in one area,
but to create a balance between the three.
Comfort through your In-Group.
Learning through your Out-Group.
Integration through reflection
on your own.
