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 need to discover all the fun activities to do in Austin, find new social connections, and concentrate 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 the ground level in your new residence. This is the moment to get everything put in order once and for all as you begin to unpack all the cartons. If you have always thought about trying a new furniture formation in your family room or bedroom, go for it. You can modify the colors, the arrangement, and even get rid of the belongings that you no longer want ahead of putting them away. Of course, it's usually best to donate them prior to moving them – but this is a chance 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, create 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 community theater or enroll in dancing 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 learn something fun and meet some new friends 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 dust your furniture often enough or that you smoked in your old residence. No matter what it is that you desire to modify, now is the time to do it. You are in a new house, allowing you to start from scratch. If you do not want to fall into the same habits, make the resolution to change. You might also want to write yourself reminders every now and then so that you remember why you are ditching 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. Even though 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 helpfule to have someone who will watch out for your house when you are away and vice versa. Remember that moving to Austin is only as worrisome as you make it out to be. If you know that you are moving to a new area with the ambition for a new beginning, it can be a positive boost. You may be eager to start a new part of your life in Austin. Create a to-do list for your house 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 area, contact us at A-1 Freeman Moving Group to get started on your move.
