It is never easy to uproot and move away from a place you have spent a substantial amount of time living in. Moving itself is not as difficult compared to what comes after; settling down and planting new roots. While the first few
weeks or even a month might not feel too bad it does not mean you are out of the woods just yet.
The problem with moving is that you never really realize you need to be taking care of yourself mentally because you have so much to do. That settling down period lasts up to a month at times. A month is a long time to not be thinking about yourself, and just focusing on the move and being in crisis management mode.
When the time finally does come, it often hits really hard. Being able to predict this is one of your best bets, but in case you can’t, it is always going to be comforting knowing that you are not alone.
Always remember to reach out to family and friends when you have moved. People might say that it will make you more home sick but that is furthest from the truth. Talking to family and friends makes you realize that you haven’t changed planets, you have just changed cities. That can help ground your inflated insecurities.
Often, when you have completely settled in a new location, you realize that you now have too much free time on your hands. You had not expected to be this free, and that leads to you idling about.
Idling is one of the worst things you can do when you have moved. You need to be sure to not do that. Find a routine. Join a Gym. You need to be sure to stay productive and with that you’ll be able to overcome the big move in no time.
Always remember to stay strong and you’ll do fine!
