Already unpacked? Here’s how to feel right at home.

You’re a little more settled-in these days. Most of those boxes are unpacked. You’re figuring out the best commute routes, hopefully via bicycle or on foot. You’re getting into the swing of things. Still, something’s missing. You’re feeling like there’s more to making the transition from new arrival to local, but you’re just not there yet. Here are three more ideas for transitioning from new mover to part of the neighborhood – easing into your new home and feeling like a real member of the community.

Find a way to contribute. You’ve got to get involved to feel like a member of a group. There are so many ways to give back to a community. Whether you’re helping coach your kid’s sports team, pitching in at the soup kitchen or joining a neighborhood organization, you’re also building friendships. Discover ways you can give back with Carolinas HealthCare System’s volunteer opportunities.

Once you’re unpacked, think about taking on a home-improvement project of some sort. It could be indoor or outdoor, but it should require a little sweat equity. Even if you’re just renting, talk to your landlord to explore options. You’ll feel more invested and proud of your living space.

There’s nothing like taking a little trip away to remind you that there’s no place like home. The greater Charlotte area has so much to offer for day trips and weekend getaways in amazing towns like Asheville, Chapel Hill, Boone and more.
