Six Ways to Treat Yourself After a Move

Relocating is hard work.  It begins weeks, even months before the actual move day. From finding a new place to arranging the move, packing, unpacking and doing the necessary relocation paperwork, it’s an energy-draining task. Once you arrive at your new place, and put everything in its place though, you can breathe a sigh of relief. You can also help yourself recover a little by treating yourself. Here are six ways you can reward yourself post-move:
 

Take a Spa Day

New York City has no shortage of spas. From simple, no nonsense, spas where you can get a quick massage on the cheap to fancier ones where you can spend a day soaking your tired body and drinking juices to replenish, you can find something that will suit your budget and taste. Either way, you deserve a little pampering.
 

Get a New Do

A new home, a new do! That’s right, go for a whole new look to match your new apartment. Get a cut, or a blow out and enjoy that fabulous “I’m looking good” feeling.
 

Take a Break from Kitchen Duty

Don’t bother with cooking or cleaning, go somewhere nice and enjoy a night of being wined and dined. If you’re by yourself, this is a good time to reboot your head, if you have a partner or roommate you can use this opportunity to reconnect without the responsibilities of everyday life getting in the way.

Get out of Town

You might think the last thing you’ll enjoy is being on the move, but a day or weekend out of the city where you can enjoy a serene landscape—be it the ocean or the mountains—can do wonders for a tired mind and body. Consider the Long Island coast or the Catskills for a quick getaway.

See a Show

You’ve been pining to see Hamilton, or The Book of Mormon but like most of us you don’t want to shell out a few hundred bucks. If you have the cash handy, this might be a good excuse to go see the shows without feeling guilty. You deserve it after all the work you’ve put into the move.
 

Buy Yourself Something Nice

Maybe it’s a dress, a set of nice Egyptian cotton sheets or a new vase for your place, no matter; this is a good time to purchase that item you’ve had on your wish list. If it’ll bring you joy, it’ll be a good reward!
