MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR NEW NEIGHBOURS GETTING ACQUAINTED We at KEY Moving understand that moving can be complicated and we are here to take the anxiety out of the moving process for you. But after all the boxes are unpacked, the pictures hung and your shelves stocked, it’s time to focus on your new life in your new home and its surroundings. Now that you’ve moved IN, it’s time to get OUT. Yes, getting acquainted with your new neighborhood is the best way to truly get settled.
Here are some helpful tips on how to do just that:
Get to Know Your Neighbours
Whether you bring by cookies or invite people to a dinner party at your home, there’s no better way to build your new community than getting to know who your neighbors are. Also, consider sending notes to your existing friends letting them know you have moved and giving them your new address.
Sick of It All
You just moved but your doctors have not. One of the first things you need to do is to find local doctors, dentists and hospitals (and veterinary hospitals) in your area. The last thing you want to do when you, your child or your best friend are feeling unwell is to start looking for a new doctor, so it’s good to do your research ahead of time. Also, remember to transfer all of your existing prescriptions to your new local pharmacy.
Dining In Grocery Delivery
The best way to start enjoying your new home is by cooking in it. BUT If you’re tired from your move or just need a break, remember to gather menus from your local and soon-to-be favorite delivery restaurants. Also, it might be good to have a grocery delivery service on hand in case you are stuck at home.
Your place is spotless because you have just moved. Now how do you keep it that way? You’re a busy person with a full time job. Ask your neighbors for references on reliable cleaning services in your area. Also ask about a good dry cleaners or two in your neighborhood.
Get More Pep in Your Step
One of the best things youcan do for yourself is to find your nearest and dearest re-fueling station. Whether it’s coffee, tea, Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts, it’s good to know where you can go for a close-by pit stop, if you should need it.
Re-start the Heart (beat, that is)
Are you an outdoor jogger or a gym rat? Either way, it’s good to find your new favorite spot or outdoor trail in case you need to step out, clear your head and get that blood a-pumping.
Every neighborhood should have either an older, more established restaurant or trendy new spot where you can go for a nice meal and fun fare. It’s a good way to get to know the local folks as well as relax and take in the vibe of your new surroundings.
Calling All Ladies
Moving is tough but your hands and nails take most of the beating. It’s true, every nail is broken and every shoulder muscle is tense. Check out your local salon for relaxing mani, pedi or shoulder massage. Not only do you get to be pampered for a bit but you also don’t need to keep up with the conversation. What better way to unwind and unplug for a little while?
