Adjusting to a New Home After a MovePosted on: Friday, January 8th, 2021
Moving is an exciting new adventure, however, it can also be a stressful process. If you are preparing for a move, you may be nervous about making new friends in your new community. For families, they may fear that this move will disrupt their children. When moving, the key is to make your house into a home as soon as possible after moving. This gives you stability and makes you feel more “at home” in your new neighborhood. But, how do you do this?
- Create consistency
This is important for individuals and families who are moving into a new location. Be consistent with what you are doing. Did you get out on Friday night for a drink at the local pub? Maybe you took the kids out on Saturday morning for breakfast? Keep with these consistent traditions in your new location. It helps you to cope better with being in a new place, since you are being consistent with what you are doing, and it has the added bonus of helping you to get to know the new area!
- Try to get unpacked asap
Instead of living out of boxes for weeks and months, try to unpack as soon as possible. You will find that through unpacking your possessions into your new house, it will automatically feel more like home than it did when boxes scattered the floors.
- Keep reminding yourself why you moved in the first place
This is important! Many people often feel guilt for leaving their before home for this new location. But, remember, why did you do this? If you did this to be closer to work, then think of the benefits of this new location. If you did this because you wanted to get out of the city, then think about all the reasons that you wanted out of the crowded city. The key is to not wallow in this guilt, but rather embrace the reasons why you wanted to move so that you see the positive side of this. Before long, you will feel more positive about this new home as well.
