(NAPSI)—If you’ll be decking the halls of a new home this holiday season, you won’t be alone. Every year, one in ten Americans moves to a new place. It can take some careful coordination in the best of times, but during the holidays—and a pandemic—it can be even more of a challenge. One of the most important things you can do is to stay connected to the people and things that matter most to you. For that, you’ll want your Internet, Cable TV and phone up and running, so you can continue to work and learn from home, celebrate in new ways with family and friends, watch all your favorite holiday movies and shop online for presents and festive foods.
Here are hints on how:
1.Take the proper pandemic precautions: Follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention disinfecting guidelines. While out for move-related errands, be sure to cover your mouth and your nose. Some festive holiday-themed masks are available. Also, wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
2.Stay Connected: A good move, even before you move, is to get in touch with the new home’s local Cable provider through www.smartmove.us and arrange for new Touchless Installs that let you safely connect your tech services yourself. The cable company delivers the equipment with step-by-step activation information so you can set up your system on your own, or with support over the phone, online, through chat functionality or video tutorials. In most cases, no technician needs to come into your house.
3.Keep up with holiday traditions—or create new one just for your new home: Use your new online connection to find delivery services to help stock your pantry and fridge. Your new house will feel more like home if you take time to watch your favorite holiday shows, maintain your exercise program (to feel fit and fight those holiday pounds). Make time to connect with people you care about through group video chats or viewing parties and show off your holiday decorations or virtually ring in the New Year.
