After a long day of moving, unpacking may be the last thing you want to do, and that’s fair enough. While you don’t want to wait too long to settle in, don’t feel guilty about wanting to take some time to unwind. Time to reward yourself for a move well done! Here are some ideas if you aren’t sure what to do:
You’re tired, and don’t want to go out. But you can’t imagine having the energy to cook, either. Treat yourself, and order in! Dinner is delivered right to your door and you can take a nap on the couch, lie down with a book or, if you’re so inclined, start unpacking a few things.
If you’ve got access to board games or card games, clear a space on the floor (or at the table, if it’s set up) and unwind for a few hours.
This is an easy one, pull out your laptop or tablet and put on your favorite film—no need to unpack the entire DVD collection or set up the TV. Laptop too small? Hit the theater and see something on the big screen.
Moving builds quite an appetite and unpacking your kitchen supplies may be the last thing you want to do, so step out for a few hours and relax at a nearby restaurant.
Hit the Town
Is there a sporting event or theater performance taking place that night? Your house is full of boxes, so a great reward could mean going out to watch a game, concert, or whatever else you still have energy for.
