It’s easy to have a range of thoughts flowing around your mind. You want to do this and that. Jump right in and you’ll soon discover that you’ve accomplished nothing. In fact, all you’ve managed to do is spend a lot of time thinking and starting half-finished projects. The best way to settle into your new home is to take on each project one step at a time. Start with the basics of moving in before you decide to make your mark on the place.
Explore the Area
A home is so much more than the building you will spend most of your time inside. You can have the perfect home, but if you don’t like the surrounding area you’re never going to feel at home. Start out on the right foot by dedicating some time to exploration. Walk around the area and meet some of the neighbors. Get some of your daily routine in-check. Something as simple as paying a visit to your new local store is a great way to get used to the area and feel at home.
Start to Belong
As the new person on the block, you have to try to find something that grounds you in your local community. This is how you truly feel that you’re home. Figure out what you enjoy and whether you can find something to facilitate that. For example, readers may want to join a local book club. See if you can find a local sports team for the kids to join.
It’s vital that you do this for every member of the family. The quicker you do it the quicker you’ll feel like you’re home.
Different Not the Same
We have to make the point that the goal isn’t to simply replicate what you had in your old house. The goal isn’t to do that. You want to embrace change and you want things to be different, which is why you presumably left in the first place. However, it’s always good to bring back some of those old home comforts. It will help you to settle in quicker, but in time, you’ll cast away these old habits and develop new ones.
