You will notice a pattern in the moving process if you move enough. The initial excitement is when you gather packing supplies and boxes, and get ready for the next few days of hard work.

Moving day finally arrives. It is a long, exhausting day of heavy lifting with the occasional hiccup. After all the work is done, you can relax in your new home for a moment before looking around at your boxes to see how much more you have to do. Meanwhile, life – jobs, kids, pets, etc. Your attention is still required for your family’s well-being.

It’s not surprising that many people find moving stressful.

It’s not all bad. In the end, it is usually a positive experience. It’s a fact that moving brings with it stress. Knowing what to expect and how to deal with it is better than letting it get you down.

Tips to make moving easier

Accept that stress is part of the moving process

Acceptance is key to overcoming stress during a move. Consider other times in your past where you have accepted stress as part of the moving process and just dealt with it.

It’s a normal human reaction to stressful situations, but it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. It can actually be beneficial for you. It’s okay to accept it as it is. But don’t let that stop you from completing your tasks.

Take your time

Not having enough time is a major source of stress in moving. Although a stress-free move may not be possible, you can make it easier by making sure that you have enough time to do everything.

Start small

You’ll find that the little things add up quickly to bigger things if you tackle them first. You can manage your stress by making small but significant progress. Don’t worry about how you’re going to get everything packed up and shipped to another place. Instead, focus on getting each piece done.

Stay organized

If you want to make moving easier, organization is essential. This goes for all aspects of your move. From labeling and sorting boxes so they are easier to unpack, to keeping any documents that you may need (contract with your movers or new lease).

Hire professional packers

If you have the budget for it, professional packers can help to relieve some of the stress associated with moving. Our professional packers can help with packing and wrapping fragile items such as lamps and art, and also assist you on moving day.

This means that you will have less to do and less stress. You should only hire a reliable and trustworthy moving company. Otherwise, you could end up with more stress than you want. Our directory of moving companies is a great place to start.

Ask for help

Asking for help is okay. Ask a friend, family member, or just someone to help you unpack or pack if you feel stressed. The second set of hands can help reduce stress and make it easier to manage what could be a daunting task. Plan ahead to ask for help at least a week in advance. This will make it easier for anyone you ask to be flexible. Always show gratitude and return the favor if you get it.

Sleep well

It’s easy for people to forget to sleep when there is so much to do. The more you don’t get enough sleep, the more you will feel stressed. You should make sleep a top priority when you move. Try to get as much rest as possible. You can put a lot of stress on your body and mind when moving. If you don’t get enough sleep, you will soon feel exhausted. You’ll find you are more productive and less stressed if you allow yourself to recharge each night.

Moving can be stressful. Accept what you are going through and take care of yourself. After it’s over, treat yourself to a relaxing massage or an evening out. It’s a reward you will be proud of.
