When your children head off to university, the nest may feel very empty but a whole host of other emotions can come into play when they come back home for the holidays. Make the process easier with our storage unit in Newbury.
In the university year 2021/22, there were 2.86 million people at university up and down the country. The rate of 18 year olds applying for a university place has steadily increased since 2013, after a dip in 2012 after the increased price of tuition fees. 2022 saw record breaking levels of applicants, with 767,000 people applying. Around 560,000 of these were accepted into full time university courses.
And in the next few weeks, a large chunk of those 560,000 will be making their way back home for the summer.
If this was the first time your children had moved away it is very likely that you felt empty nest syndrome which can trigger a great deal of emotions such as anxiety.
You may think your children coming back home will make things easier but this can actually cause something known as ‘the boomerang effect’. The boomerang effect comes into play when you have gotten used to having extra space and then the children return home. On top of this, the children will have also gotten used to a level of independence.
This can cause a whole new wave of feelings and emotions and so it is important to create space within the home to allow everyone space. Our storage unit in Newbury can help you accomplish this.
