The moving process can be a long and tiresome journey. After weeks of preparing for the move, packing all of your belongings into a storage unit in Toronto, cleaning up your old space, and moving and unpacking the new space no wonder you are tired. While the idea of moving in to a new home or apartment can be exciting, taking all the steps to get that dream into a reality is a bit of work.
Now that all of your boxes and furniture have been moved out of your storage unit in Toronto space and you are all moved in you can start the fun part of exploring your new neighborhood. While there are maps, and aps, and recommendations all over the place often times the best way to explore your new neighborhood is to simply put on your comfy walking shoes and head out for an adventure.
Take a note pad with you and write down the addresses of restaurants you want to try, shops you further want to explore, and that great café that is a few streets over that you must come to on a relaxing afternoon with a book soon. By keeping a list with you, you won’t forget what streets they were on when you want to go back to try out the new places that you have found.
Once you have explored a little on your own, and then perhaps look at what social media, aps, and your neighbors recommend for great places to go to. If you are new to the area and especially if you are new to the city of Toronto you will want to explore more than just restaurants and coffee shops.
If you are new to the city exploring is a great way to meet new people. Strike up conversations with the proprietors of the places you find, meet new tenants in your apartment complex, or even join a community group or class in the area. Community classes such as cooking, sewing, or gardening clubs can be a great way to meet people who share your interests, and it can be educational at the same time.
Another great way to meet people and to give back to your new community is to find a volunteer opportunity or a non-profit organization nearby. This way you can do some good, and make new friends all of the same time.
The moving process can be long and burdensome, but you have to keep the end goal in mind of a new home to decorate and live in, a new community to explore, and new friends to make. So if you are just starting out in the whole packing and moving process, or you are bogged down in the middle and are still pacing boxes into your storage unit in Toronto space just remember that it will hopefully all be worth it in the end. Keep planning, and packing, and moving.
