Let's face it, moving can be stressful. Moving stress can be exasperated by a long list of things to do, time constraints, the unfamiliarity of a new environment and the unknown factors involved with 'starting over.' Unfortunately, with so much to focus on, physical and mental health can be pushed aside. Limit the amount of stress involved with your upcoming move! Check out our tips below:
Don’t Be Afraid to Feel
This might sound corny, but it's true! Depending on the circumstances of the move, sadness, frustration and exhaustion can be inevitable. Even if you strive to keep a positive mindset, you can feel overwhelmed and stressed. Instead of bottling up your feelings, talk about your stress with friends and family and, most importantly, get help! Entrusting some or all aspects of your move to a professional moving company, like Pro Service Moving, could be exactly what you need to offset the stress and avoid potentially larger problems on moving day.
Try to Remain Positive
Regardless of why you're moving, it's important to try to stay positive even when you're tired or overwhelmed. A positive mindset not only changes your moving experience by reducing stress, but it can also make you more productive and make it easier to find solutions to complicated problems. Explore your new neighbourhood, stay organized and break the tasks required for your move down into smaller steps.
It can sometimes feel next to impossible to stay organized during a move, especially when there's so much to do, but organization may be the key to reducing stress. To get and stay organized, first create a list of tasks and cross them off as they’re completed. Next, sort your belongings into 'keep,' 'throw away' and 'donate' categories and tag them with colour-coded stickers. After your things are sorted, begin packing the items you don’t need or use daily. Remember to clean as you go, which can help reduce your workload.
