The fact that you are moving to a new place is already enough to make you feel a bit confused and scared. As long as you have chosen the right movers then the process will not be too complicated. The moment you get to your new house too, you will feel a bit of homesickness. This is just normal. You are going to miss your old home especially if you made a lot of memories there. One thing to remember though: memories stay with you. It is not left behind at the place where you came from.
It may take time before the new-house feeling will fade away but if you would do things that you normally do at your old house, you will feel more at home. For example, you can start cleaning HEPA filters again so that you will have cleaner appliances that make use of the filter. This may not seem like much but this will make you feel that you have never switched houses.
How can you settle in further in your new home? These are a few more things that you can do:
- You need to unpack the items for the common places but you can also start with something that is more personal like your closet.
When you go on vacation, you have a choice to unpack everything and place the items in the designated closet. You have to admit that this makes you feel more at ease inside your hotel room or the bed and breakfast place. This is also something that you can do when you transfer homes. Unpack your clothes in your closet and you will start to feel a connection with your new home.
- Recreate some things that are familiar to you.
This is similar to replacing the HEPA filters, you can also do other things that you used to do at your old home. For example, you may want to start cooking pancakes every Saturday again. It will give you a sense of familiarity so you will not feel too homesick.
- Try to do your regular routine.
What is the routine that you follow in your old house? Try to do the same routine at your new house so you will not feel the difference anymore. Do not worry because the time will come when you would feel like you have never moved. Take note that there may be some slight changes to the routine especially if the place where you live now is so much different from before.
- Allow yourself to be more comfortable at your new home.
If you need to improve your bed, then do it. Find the best covers for your bed that will make you feel very comfortable. The more comfortable that you feel, the more that you would love staying in your new home. Do not forget to have a lot of pillows and a duvet that will provide you with great sleep every night.
With all of these tips mentioned above, you will begin to feel happier and more comfortable in your new home. Are you ready to settle down?
