Make new friends, or meet acquaintances as soon as you can.
Leaving friends and family behind sneaks up on you. The loneliness hits hard, and realizing the relationships won’t stay the same can be a hard hit as well. Not having that face-to-face contact takes a toll.
So try to make some new friends! Get involved in different communities, go to the local theatre, hit up local events or even search online to meet locals. Growing your own circle will make your new town feel like home.
Don’t stress over the logistics. Keep it quick and simple.
You don’t want to worry about missing the delivery with your belongings. Try a reputable mover like Two Men And A Truck. Take caution when dealing with the logistics. You want to have all of your things, not only half.
When you have less to worry about, your health isn’t affected as much. Less worries mean more time to go out and get accustomed to this new place you call home. Stay comfortable throughout the moving process by having things together logistically.
Say yes to every invite (within reason)
It’s super easy to say no to people you know well. There’s always a chance to see them again later. In a new city, however, there’s a chance you’ll never get an invitation again. First impressions are super important!
Say yes to every invitation you receive. You obviously can’t go to them all, but accepting them helps you make new friends and get integrated.
