Moving to Austin Can Be a Fresh Start 08/07/2018By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group If you move to a new city, it's a chance to get a fresh start. You might not know a single person. While this could be scary at first, it is also an opportunity to work on who you are. You should explore all the great activities to do in Austin, find new social connections, and work on becoming a better version of yourself. Get Organized Once you box up all of your stuff to move to Austin, you truly get to begin from scratch in your new residence. This is an opportunity to get everything put in order once and for all as you commence to unpack all the cartons. If you have always thought about trying a new arrangement in your family room or bedroom, go for it. You can modify the colors, the arrangement, and even purge the belongings that you no longer want ahead of putting them away. Of course, it's always best to donate them prior to moving them – but this is an opportunity to get organized. Create "Me" Space As you unpack and maneuver your items around in your new place in Austin, make sure that you arrange a space just for you. This can be your safe spot when you have had a stressful day. Whether it is a "man cave" or a book corner in your bedroom, make a space that you will love spending time in. Do Something New We all have activities that we have always wanted to accomplish. Perhaps you have always wanted to learn more about town’s big band or enroll in piano lessons. Once you are in your new area, go for it. Find a studio or class that will provide you with the training. It's an opportunity to do something new and meet some new folks while you are at it. Break Bad Habits You could have a bad habit or two that you are not proud of. It may be that you do not clean your toilet often enough or that you smoked in your old house. No matter what it is that you need to adjust, now is the perfect time. You are in a new residence, which allows you to start from scratch. If you don't want to be consumed with the same habits, make the choice to change. You could also want to leave yourself reminders every now and then so that you remember why you are getting rid of those habits. Meet the Neighbors You may or may not know all the neighbors in your current neighborhood. Once you move, make sure that you make an effort to meet everyone. Although some neighbors may make the first move to welcome you to the neighborhood, feel free to go ahead and take the initiative. Introducing yourself to the people who live closeby can be a great safety feature. You do not need to be besties but it can be advantageous to have someone who will watch out for your residence when you are not there and vice versa. Remember that moving to Austin is only as anxiety-filled as you make it out to be. If you know that you are moving to a new area with the longing for a new beginning, it can be a positive boost. You may be excited to start a new part of your life in Austin. Create a to-do list for your abode and for yourself so that you don’t forget all of the stuff that you want to accomplish. After you have officially moved in, you should then begin on that list. When you're ready to get your fresh start in a new town, contact us at A-1 Freeman Moving Group to get started on your move.
