Here is our guide to spending the first night in your new home:
The first night in your new home can be a strange experience. You may feel a little scared, overwhelmed, or just plain excited. Then, add to the experience a mixture of stress and physical and mental fatigue. After your big day of moving you may be in for a bit of a rough night. This is why it is important to be prepared for your first night. A first night checklist is a great way to ensure you settle in as quickly and smoothly as possible.
The first thing to check off you list should be unpacking your ‘essentials’ box. This box should be kept with you at all times during the move and should contain any essentials you will need on the first night in your house. Things included might be medications, toiletries, bottled water, clothing, children’s and pet’s neccessities, and tools for opening boxes and setting up your new place.
Bedroom and bathroom
Once you’ve unpacked your moving survival kit, it’s time to set up your bed. After a long day of moving you are going to need a good rest. Even if all of your bedding hasn’t arrived at your new place, ensure you will at least have a mattress to sleep on. Next, set up any necessary toiletries, towels, and anything you need to have a nice warm shower and brush your teeth.
Be prepared for everything that can go wrong to go wrong! You can’t control everything, but you can be prepared. Children, pets, and relocation anxiety are all things that you should think about before moving night. Children and pets are particularly sensitive when comes to a change in environment and will need constant care and reassurance during the first night in your new home. It is also important to take care of yourself during the first night in your new home as you may begin to experience relocation anxiety and depression.
