Starting over in a new location is exciting! But it can also stir up feelings of homesickness. Although those feelings may feel big now, you won’t experience them forever. Here are some tips for settling into your new home environment.
Making new friends as an adult doesn’t have to be daunting! Experts suggest following your interests, like registering at a new gym or joining a casual art class. Coffee shops will have bulletins of local events. Chat with your new coworkers about their favorite local spots—you’ll not only get recommendations for places to check out, but also form new connections.
Developing daily routines will help you gain stability and predictability. Human beings are naturally creatures of habit. It may feel odd at first, but consistency is key. Taking walks in your neighborhood is a great way to meet your neighbors and get in nature. Going to the gym once a week will offer various benefits to your mental and physical health. Using websites like MeetUp can introduce you to new activity or restaurant groups.
Make decorating your space a priority. Having a sanctuary to feel safe and comfortable as you get to know your new city will help to ease some of your feelings of displacement. Focusing on sentimental items like keepsakes and photographs will help anchor you to your new environment and the place you’ve left.
