If you’re moving house, I’m sure you feel different emotions like exciting, stressed out and most of the time, tired. We all know moving is not easy, there’s a lot of things to be done and enormous transformation is coming. It is physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting. Below are four great tips to help you get rid of stress and enjoy moving.
Preparation before the big day is very important. More often than not, we run out of time to do some tasks and arrange things. Moving house is the same as having a big event or gathering that will happen in your life. With that said, the more preparation you have, the chance of having moving problem is low. There will be less difficulty and moving runs smoothly.
Three months preparation is ideal in moving house. It will give you lots of time to work on some issues or concern, you can hire a moving company that you want, and start buying materials for packing. More time preparing can make your moving house less stressful and more enjoyable. Eight weeks before you move is acceptable but less than that will be a struggle and you will find yourself more nervous. If you can’t avoid a last minute move like let’s say a month or less, be sure to take some time off from work to finish all the tasks before the big day arrives.
Think possible scenarios
To avoid panic or confusion, try to think about all possible scenarios that could go wrong, be ready for it and make sure to have back plans. Example, what if the moving company you hire did not show up? What if the truck you rented is not available when you pick it up? There are other possible scenarios that might happen on the day of moving. We can’t avoid things to happen but if we are ready for unfortunate events, we can definitely avoid stress. Don’t forget the list of other movers, rental companies and friends that you can call if you need help too.
Take time to breathe
With so much things going on your mind, there are times that you need to stop, breathe and relax. We all know that moving to a different place is difficult. Packing and unpacking is not easy. However, make sure you take time to go out, be with your friends, be with nature, etc. Taking time out will definitely make you think better and feel better. .
Enjoy the moment
Forget about the possible negative things that might happen. Enjoy every moment, moving means new day, new place, new friends, new opportunities and so many new wonderful things. Yes, it is stressful and tiring but once it’s all done and over, you will realize yes I did it!
