Top Steps to Take Before Moving to a New City

Top Steps to Take Before Moving to a New City

Moving to a new city can be an overwhelming and emotional experience, whether the move has been well thought out or is a surprise. In my Redbook magazine article, "5 Steps to Take Before Moving to a New City," I offer some steps to help ease the transition:
 
- Make a plan. Create a checklist with deadlines for everything that needs to get done, from packing to canceling your phone. Set small goals and reward yourself after each task.
 
- Get the lay of the land. Before you move, purchase a map and travel book and read up on your new city. Once there, take leisurely walks and drives to locate grocery stores and other points of interest.
 
- Psych yourself up. Think of your move as an adventure. Appreciate each new discovery and give yourself credit for taking a risk. On the other side of this transition, you'll find a new inner strength!
