Moving to a new home is a joyful event.
However, in some cases, this joy can be mixed with anxiety about how to quickly settle in a new environment.
And anxiety always comes with insomnia.
Want to learn how to deal with this move easily? I am here to help you!
These simple tips will make your sleep significantly better in no time!
Start with Routine Reorganization
The reason for anxious sleep after moving to a new house is simple: you haven’t adapted to a new environment yet.
But there are a few simple solutions to that:
Explore the surroundings
It is unlikely that you will go out somewhere in the first couple of days, as you need time to unbox and arrange your things, but set out to explore the neighborhood right after you’re done. This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the environment. Plus, a short walk will be a great way to do some moderate physical activity before sleep. According to studies, this can improve the quality and duration of your sleep, which is exactly what you need in your new home.
Dedicate some time to know your neighbors
Getting to know the people who live near you is one of the best ways to settle down and make contacts, especially if you have moved to a new city and have no friends.
Decorate your rooms
Sometimes, moving to a new house can feel like you’re losing control over things.
To regain this control, decorate the rooms the way you want it.
Buying a picture, creating a photo wall, or adding other cozy details around the rooms will help establish emotional associations and get you to feel the new home like it’s all yours.
Come back to the schedule
Another working way to overcome anxiety and improve sleep is to return to the routine you had before the relocation.
Or, at least to make it as close as possible to the way you used to live.
“Our brain quickly gets used to new patterns and creates associations. So, if you return to the familiar schedule, you can regain the feeling of comfort and coziness (and hence improve your sleep).”
