Preparing For A Stress-free Move
The thought of moving is stressful because of all the things you need to do and organise. You might become worried, fearful and anxious at the thought of moving and making a big change in your life. You’re going to be out of your comfort zone soon and sometimes you don’t know what you can expect once you move to your new place. Luckily, here are some tips to lessen your stress before moving.
Jot everything down on paper
There are times when we get overwhelmed that we are no longer able to start anything. When you write down your thoughts, goals, and plans, you will get a head start on what you must do.
Declutter your home
You should plan on getting rid of the things that you haven’t used for months and don’t really need. Sort through the stuff you have and you will discover that you can actually live on lesser things. Over time, it is very easy to buy and accumulate things and not actually use all of them.
Have a notebook
Aside from having numbers listed on your phone or tablet, it is still advisable to have a notebook where everything is there. You can also make lists of tasks you need to do. Sometimes it makes it easier to remember things once you right them down.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to do everything alone and you need to delegate tasks to your family members or ask your friends for help. Your next door neighbour can even help out by watching over the kids while you do the packing and the cleaning. Do not hesitate to ask for help.
Do not forget about yourself
It’s easy to lose time for yourself during this busy time. You won’t even have time to exercise or eat properly. You need both exercise and food to keep yourself going through the day especially when you have to move and do almost all of the work. Don’t let yourself become overwhelmed with all of the things on your list. Keep your thoughts organised. When you do them one by one, you will realize that you do have enough energy for all of them as long as you eat and exercise.
Even if moving is something that you have been thinking about doing, it can still overwhelm you and stress you out. There will be days that are good and some are more stressful while you are planning and organising everything. You need to relax. Don’t get ahead of yourself when you are thinking about all the errands you need to do. Everyone goes through stress while moving and people will understand that so never be afraid to ask for help when you need it. You might also realize that taking this big leap in your life might even be good for you.
