After you’ve hired movers Portsmouth NH and relocated to New Hampshire you might be asking yourself the following. How am I supposed to stay in touch with my friends now that I’m hundreds (if not thousands) of miles away? Well, thankfully, there are a couple of things you can do:

  • Talk to your friends before the move. Even before you hire movers Northwood NH we recommend you talk to your friends about the move. Go over the reasons why you are moving. Be empathetic. Listen to them. Try to understand. Be attentive. Don’t make it about you. And most importantly, be explain that you will always be there for them.
  • Set a time and date. Most people fall out of contact because they don’t schedule hangouts. While it might seem trivial, it’s crucial you do this. Just texting someone is not the same as having a 1-on-1 video chat. Or better yet, a full-blown in-person conversation.
  • Remember important dates. Birthdays, reunions, exams, etc. A simple hello with a wish for the best will go a long way in the lifespan of your friendship. And while this rings true in general, it also ties in with trying to maintain a friendship after moving long distances. For example, using storage solutions to store your gifts for your friends is an excellent way to keep in touch. Just make sure they have the key to your unit!
  • Don’t forget to spend time with your friends. Finally, we always recommend trying to schedule some face-to-face time. And while we understand that the global pandemic of the Covid-19 virus has made this terrible hard. However, we recommend that you get to see your friends as soon as you get the opportunity. This can in some circumstances, make or break a relationship. So put in the effort and travel back home or plan vacations together!
