• 4 Tips for Reducing Stress While Moving

    Whether it’s across town or across country, moving is one of the most stressful experiences a person can go through. Everything takes longer and weighs more than you initially thought, and the internet provider never seems to have any openings to come out to your new place and get you hooked up!

    It’s no wonder people dread moving.

    If you have a big move coming up, here are some tips to help you reduce stress:

    Accept Reality

    No move in the history of mankind has ever gone off without a hitch. Expecting the unexpected and going with the flow as best you can is important.

    Give Yourself Plenty of Time

    One of the biggest reasons people get stressed while moving is because they don’t give themselves enough time. While a small apartment may take two days to fully pack up, a three or four-bedroom house you’ve lived in for over a decade may take closer to a week or two. It’s always best to give yourself more time and not less.

    Be sure to give yourself plenty of time with other aspects of moving as well. For instance, setting up the utilities in your new home, researching the right moving company, and thoroughly cleaning your old home. These projects will all take time as well.

    Stay Organized

    Keeping stress at bay will require you to stay organized. From buying moving supplies to labeling boxes to packing, organization will help you stay in control when things could easily spin out of control. So make lists and use a day planner to stay on top of your tasks.

    Ask for Help

    Don’t feel you need to do everything by yourself. If you need help, ask for it. Sometimes even having company from a friend or family member while you pack can lift your spirits. And try and plan ahead. Give your loved ones a heads-up a week out so there is more of a chance they can say “yes.”

    Is moving fun? Nope. But if you give yourself plenty of time, stay organized, ask for help, and accept that sh*t happens, your move will go much more smoothly.
