Moving to a new home or apartment can be a hectic process that takes time to plan and coordinate every aspect of packing up your entire life and relocating. Oftentimes this is easier said than done.
While stress is a difficult thing to avoid when it comes to a life change as big as moving, here are some helpful tips to help you plan, strategize, and breathe easy as your moving date comes closer!
Formulate a Plan
When it comes to moving, having a plan is single-handedly one of the most important aspects of a move. Without a plan it is easy to become overwhelmed by stress as the list of “to do’s grows daily. By formulating a strategy, you can create a structured plan to tackle each section of your home without the feeling of being overwhelmed or behind schedule. Creating a plan and starting small can quickly cut down on the clutter in your home as well as slowly cutting down the workload & stress.
Take the Move in Stride
After formulating a strategy for your move, it is important to understand that moving is not an easy process. Stress is a natural when it comes to major life changes and almost everyone goes through the same feeling of anxiety, nervousness, and general stress.
By accepting this fact, it can help make the process easier as this is only a temporary feeling. It is helpful to think about the exciting aspects of the move, such as a new location, change, decorating your new residence, and anything that might take away from what is causing the stress to begin with.
Declutter Your Home
Moving provides you with the rare opportunity of being able to go through everything in your home. Take this time to clear out any items that you no longer need, such as clothing that may be too small, or any electronics that have been sitting in the basement for years. By selling or giving away any miscellaneous items that no longer have value or meaning in your life, you are not only making the move easier on your part, but more importantly there will be less to unpack when you reach your new destination!
Ask for Assistance
It never hurts to ask for help if you are feeling overwhelmed. If you have family or friends in the area, asking for assistance can help as the company of a close friend or relative can reduce stress, but also that 2 sets of hands are more efficient that one!
Hire a Professional Moving Company
Whether you are moving down the street, across town, or across the county a professional moving company can handle any of your moving requests quickly and efficiently. While there is a higher cost associated with hiring movers, this is a trade-off that many people may take advantage of. This option can remove a large amount of stress from the ordeal. By hiring professional movers, you do not need to worry about ordering permits, finding parking in a busy city, or making multiple trips back and forth.
Starting the process can be as simple as calling a professional mover to get a quote and schedule a moving date. From there the movers will arrive on that day and take care of the process for you. By taking the professional route you are opening up your schedule to more time, and more importantly, less stress.
