Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a great week so far. As most of you know I recently moved to a new city. And upon moving I learned a few things that I thought I would share with you. Moving to a new city can be really overwhelming and stressful, so I know having these tips would have helped me a great deal. Some are easier said than done, but once you get into a groove, all of them will help you.
Research your city.
It’s important to know as much about where you are moving to as possible. It’s important to know the cost of living, job opportunities, and what will be available to you. It’s important to make sure that the city you are moving to will be a place that you can feel safe and comfortable and have plenty of opportunities. This will help you know what you need to be prepared for and what you will need with you when you move.
This is one that is definitely easier said than done. It’s difficult to find the confidence and assertiveness that you need to be social and make friends. But making friends when you move somewhere new isn’t easy anyway. So you just have to make the jump and start talking to people. Talk to people you work with, go to events or places people hang out, and just start striking up conversations with people. You never know where that might lead you.
Just because you are moving to a new city doesn’t mean you have to reinvent yourself completely. It is a good chance to make some adjustments and give yourself a chance to grow, but it doesn’t mean you have to change everything. Just be you. Be authentic to what you want and what you believe in. Don’t try to be someone you’re not just to impress the people around you because the right people will appreciate you for the person that you are.
Learn as much as possible.
Once you have moved, always keep learning. Learn about the area and the places you can go. Get familiar with getting around and seeing what attractions are near you. Go visit common places that local people go. Take in all the moments you can. Take everything as an opportunity to grow and get more familiar with your new home. It will make things a lot easier down the road.
But, don’t forget to breathe and relax.
With all that is going on and the huge transitions happening in your life, your well-being should be a priority. So when you are moving and when you are settling in, don’t forget to take some time to breathe and relax. Take in what you can but don’t push yourself too far because you won’t be able to enjoy it as much. Take some time to enjoy your new home as well.
