There's less reason to worry about moving to a new city if you're more prepared for it. Most especially if you're going to an extremely busy city like New York! Have you ensured you have a place to stay when you get there? Do you know what your new address will be? If you're from a different country, have you learned the language spoken in your new city? Do you understand the city's healthcare system? You need to account for everything, down to the last detail, before you take off and fly to your new home. Once you're 100%—if possible, make it 110%!— prepared, there's nothing to worry about and you'll be able to relax just fine!
Once you get to the city, explore it a little! Take Vienna, the capital city of Austria, for instance! You might think that it's all old buildings, classic castles, and extravagant palaces but it's more than that. Many of the districts in Vienna are actually as urban and as modern as the likes of New York, London, Dubai, and more. And if you explored the city, even for just a day, you'll find this out in no time. Knowing the city by heart will make you more relaxed because you won't feel so lost anymore. Before long, you'll feel like you're at home!
The best way to relax in a new city? Just that... relax! Don't rush and let stress take over you! If you were sent to a new city for a new job, how will you be able to do it properly when you can't relax. Even though you'll be living in a new place, there's no need to rush to things. If you can't understand the city just yet, that's fine. Take it one step at a time. Even in a city like London, which is a major business hub so it's bustling practically all the time, you don't need to rush! Well, you may have to when it comes to public transport but that's a separate matter!
Did you know that in many countries, making friends is a good way to find a job? Even in France, where you might think that most people are snooty and snobby, broadening your network of acquaintances is a great way to land employment! At the same time, when you have people looking out for you, it will help you relax more. You don't have anything to worry about with friends who will teach you all of that you need to know about living in their city! So on the first day in your new hometown, make sure you make a lot of friends!
Finally, sleep! As much as you can, get some shut-eye! Most especially if you need to adjust your body clock to be in-tune with your new city's/country's time. In fact, sleeping is also a great way to get used to your new apartment, especially if it has a great bedroom. The more you sleep in your new city, the more you'll feel at peace about having to move there and staying there for a long time (possible for the rest of your life!). Relocating to a new city is a big move and you're probably physically and mentally exhausted about it. But as long as you don't forget to sleep, you'll feel as fresh as Emily Cooper in Netflix's "Emily in Paris."
