You've arrived! Aloha! Now, get out and LIVE!
So you're now kama'aina, but not quite local. You made the move, survived the trip...and now what? Get comfy, you're home!
Important: Make sure you take care of yourself.
Burnout is real, and very possible with the burdens and stress of a massive move. And it can lead to other problems. Rest when you need to, and try to eat right. It seems obvious, but most of us don't do this, and we are ALL paying the price.
*FYI, staycations here are kind of ridiculous :D
The Unspoken Part of a Move...
Chances are, if you're in the market for any kind of move, you're in the market for change. The bigger the move, the bigger the change you're looking for. I get it.
The thing about change is that it isn't as easy as flipping a switch. I personally think that a move is a fantastic time to institute changes. Scientists say it takes 66 days for a change to become habit, so, in some cases, the time it takes you to pack up, ship, and receive your household goods, you could have brand new habits.
Use your new environment to make the changes you want. You want to be healthier? Make it a habit to walk in the morning before you move, and then plant a garden at your new place in Hawaii. The habit of walking then just needs to be tweaked a bit to grab whatever is ready on your way back inside.
I try to make it a point to continually upgrade habits, rather than just stop one thing cold turkey and do something different. The cold turkey thing works for a lot of people, but not always for me. Crowding out the bad by substituting in the good works very well for me.
Break your goals into manageable steps. If you've moved to Hawaii, you've achieved more than most people. For some reason, Hawaii brings out an urge to better everything about my life. And honestly, I don't have much to complain about, even on a bad day.
Remember: Action begets action, so keep moving!
The air is fresher, the colors brighter, the food tastier...but the honeymoon phase will end. Traffic jams, illness, and annoying people all exist in Hawaii too. But, just like anywhere else, they only have power over you if you allow it to.
