Get a routine setup. Initially, you will not know many people, and probably will not have any work to do. You may feel at a loss for things to do, as being new, you still do not know what is around. Setting up a routine will help create the feeling of purpose while you settle in. Going for a walk every morning, or making sure to read the local newspaper to know about current events (and help you practice the language!) may sound boring, but it will help you have purpose.
