Are you stressed out because of a move? Don’t despair: you are not alone. Most people find moving one of the most stressful things that they do in their lives. Feeling stressed about making your move go off smoothly is normal. The important part is how you deal with your stress. Here are some ways you can help to manage your moving stress, courtesy of your Newmarket movers.
What is one of the things that is stressing you out the most? How are you going to move all of these things? Is there going to be enough room in the new place for all of this stuff? How are you ever going to get all of these things boxed for moving day? There are probably more, but you get the idea.
The best way to start to reduce your stress is very simple: just don’t take as much with you. As you pack, take the time to clear the clutter out of your life. Do you really need your high school prom dress? What about that wedding outfit from that couple you don’t even talk to anymore? If you pick something up that you haven’t seen since the last time you unpacked it, move it out of your life. Only take the things that you really need along with you.
Unlike a college final, you won’t be able to pull this one out with an all-nighter. Moving is a process that takes a fair amount of time. If you wait until the last minute, then you might find yourself trying to pack boxes as people carry them out of your home.
Spend some time getting prepared. Organize what you are going to need for you move and get the supplies ahead of time. Figure out just how long it is going to take you to get packed and start early. All of these things can help you to reduce stress as you will see progress being made in little bits.
Ask for Help
No man (or woman) is an island, so don’t be afraid of asking for a little help from your loved ones. Not only will it help you by having an extra pair of hands around, but you will get to spend some quality time with people you may be unable to see on a regular basis after the move. There is no shame in asking for help during a move, just be prepared to pay it back in the future.
You get attached to the place you call home. You spend a lot of time there, you made memories of it and it will forever be a part of your life. Make sure to put some time aside to celebrate the good times you had at the old place and give it a proper send off.
