Ah, the sweet scent of familiarity. We all know that feeling, don't we? The one where you’ve been away for a while, be it for work, travel, or education, and then you finally return home. There’s a certain comfort in it, a sense of peace that washes over you the moment you step into your familiar surroundings. The psychological impact of this return to the familiar is something to be marveled at.

Firstly, it's an undeniable fact that being in familiar surroundings triggers a sense of security and safety. This feeling is as primal as they come. It harks back to our cave-dwelling ancestors who felt safer in familiar territories as that meant fewer unknown threats. While today we're not exactly worried about a saber-toothed tiger jumping out from behind our kitchen counter, the basic psychology remains the same. Our brains are hardwired to feel comfort in what's familiar.

Secondly, the mere exposure effect comes into play. This psychological phenomenon states that people tend to develop a preference for things merely because they are familiar with them. In other words, the more we are exposed to something, the more we tend to like it. And what could be more familiar than the place we call home? The faded wallpaper, the squeaky third step on the staircase, the sound of the old oak tree rustling in the wind outside your window, they all bring a sense of belonging.

Thirdly, our surroundings often hold a treasure trove of memories. Returning home acts as a potent reminder of these memories, triggering a wave of nostalgia. This sentimentality can often be comforting, providing a psychological reinforcement of identity and reminding us of our roots.

This brings me to a fascinating parallel I recently came across. In a world where big Chinese companies are seeking the comfort of familiarity amidst global geopolitical tensions and COVID-19 by returning their listings to their homeland, I found an interesting similarity with how we humans seek solace in our own homes. These large corporations, in the face of uncertainty and unfamiliarity, are choosing to pack their bags and head back home.

It reminds me of how we, too, retreat to our homes to find comfort and safety. It's interesting to see that even in the corporate world, the psychological impact of returning to familiar ground can hold such importance. But then again, aren't corporations run by humans too?

On a similar note, let's talk about something that is very familiar and comforting to many - crafting. Crafting not only provides a creative outlet but also brings about a sense of accomplishment and joy. And what's a crafter's delight without a perfect tape to hold everything together?
