Moving to Atlanta Can Be a Fresh Start 08/07/2018By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group If you move to a new town, it is an opportunity to get a fresh start. You may not know anyone. While this might be stressful in the beginning, it's also a chance to recreate who you are. You can discover all the great activities to do in Atlanta, make new friends, and focus on becoming a better version of you. Get Organized Once you pack up all of your things to move to Atlanta, you truly get to start from the ground level in your new house. This is a chance to get organized once and for all as you start to unpack all the cartons. If you have always wanted to try a new furniture formation in your living room or bedroom, now is the time. You can mix up the colors, the layout, and even get rid of certain things that you no longer use ahead of putting them away. Remember, it's definitely better to get rid of them before you even move them – but this is an opportunity to get organized. Create "Me" Space As you unpack and maneuver your things around in your new home in Atlanta, make sure that you create a space especially for you. This can be your safe haven when you have had a crazy day. Whether it is a "man cave" or a book nook in your bedroom, design an area that you will love spending time in. Do Something New Most of us have projects that we have always longed to do. Perhaps you have always wanted to audition for the community theater or take an art class. Once you are in your new city, why not try it. Locate a venue or group that will provide you with the training. It's a chance to accomplish something new and meet some new people along the way. Stop Bad Habits You might have a bad habit or two that you are not fond of. It may be that you don't dust your furniture often enough or that you smoked at your old home. Regardless what it is that you desire to adjust, now is the best time to begin. You are in a new home, allowing you to commence from scratch. If you do not want to be consumed with the same habits, make the resolution to change. You may 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 might or might not know all the neighbors in your present block. Once you move, make sure that you make an effort to meet the people who live closeby. Even if some neighbors may make the first move to welcome you to the neighborhood, there is nothing wrong with introducing yourself and taking the initiative. Introducing yourself to the people who live closeby can be a great safety feature. You do not need to be best friends but it can be beneficial to have an acquaintance who will look out for your home when you aren't there and vice versa. Keep in mind that moving to Atlanta is only as anxiety-filled as you make it out to be. If you know that you are moving to a new town with the desire to get a fresh start, it can be a positive boost. You may be eager to start a new part of your life in Atlanta. Create a to-do list for your house and for yourself so that you don’t forget all of the things that you want to achieve. Once you have officially moved in, you can then commence 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.
