How to Reward Yourself After a Move
based on 1 visitor(s)
|After your move is completed, it's time to focus on your physical and emotional needs--which may have fallen to the wayside because of the time-consuming tasks that come with moving your home.
Don't continue to push your needs to the side after a move--make sure that you take the time to wind down and de-stress, celebrate the move's completeion and reward yourself for getting all your moving tasks accomplished. You've earned it.
Focus on yourselfIf you've moved with friends and loved ones, it's especially important to give yourself some time to relax and simply focus on you--particularly if all your moving tasks have centered around everyone else.
- Book a much-needed massage
- Reward yourself with a spa day that's entirely focused on your relaxation
- Visit a local salon in your new neighbourhood for a beauty treatment
- Indulge in a manicure, pedicure or other pampering related procedure
Take a day offEven if you have yet to complete the unpacking process fully, it's important to take some time off after your move to do anything but moving-related tasks. No one deserves a lazy day of recuperation more than you.
- Watch a movie
- Spend the day with your shows
- Read a book
- Lounge in a nice, hot bath
- Focus on some low key family time
- Order food from a delivery service in the area
Treat yourself to something specialIs there something that you've had your eye on for a while? Treat yourself to a little retail therapy and reward yourself with those shoes or a new phone you've been thinking about purchasing.
If you don't want to break the bank because of prior moving expenses, you can still take a walk around a local shopping center and keep your purchases to a minimum--or buy something you need for your new home.
Spend a night on the townAnother great way to reward yourself after your move (while getting to know your community) is to go out for the evening and take in the night life. You may want to consider:
- Drinks at a local bar (legal adults only please)
- Dinner and a movie
- A scenic walk around your new town to end the evening
Throw a housewarming partyAssuming you're the type of person who considers it a treat to plan and organize a party--rather than a chore--reward yourself for a move well done with a housewarming shindig or get together with friends and family from the area. You could even invite the neighbours over for an open house or a "get to know you" party if you aren't friendly with anyone nearby yet.
Don't neglect your unpackingRemember, while you should definitely take the time to relax and reward yourself after your move, you shouldn't put your packing off for too long--particularly if you have young children and pets who require getting adjusted to new routines as soon as possible.
Thankfully, you can have it all when you hire a moving company to unpack all your belongings for you. To start, fill out this easy to use quote form and begin getting estimates from movers nearby, giving you plenty of time to focus on yourself.
