If you have moved a lot, then you have noticed that the process has a similar pattern every time. You get excited about moving. However, you underestimate all of the work that is involved with moving. Something that you thought would only take 10 minutes ends up taking 30 minutes. Something that was supposed to only take up an hour of your time takes up five hours.
You are happy when moving day finally arrives, and you get to relax in your new place. However, this excitement is put on pause when you realize that you have a lot of boxes to unpack. Work and life in general can make it difficult to unpack.
It should be no surprise that many people stress about moving. However, there are things that you can do that will take the stress out of the moving process.
Realize That Stress is a Part of the Moving Process
The first thing that you will need to do to overcome your stress is to realize that it is a part of the process. If you realize that you are going to have some stress, then it will be a lot easier for you to manage it. Stress is a natural part of life, and small amounts of it can actually be good.
Allow Yourself to Have Enough Time
It is not possible to have a stress-free move. However, you can take some of the stress out of it by giving yourself enough time to pack. You will likely need one or two days to pack up a one bedroom or studio apartment. It typically takes three or four days to pack up a two-bedroom home. It can take up to six days to pack up a three-bedroom house.
Not only will you need to give yourself enough time to pack, but you will also need to have time to for other things. This includes switching your utilities, researching the neighborhood and finding a moving company.
You may be overwhelmed with everything that you have to do. However, if you start off with something small, then the big things will not be as overwhelming. Focus on getting one thing done at one time.
Organization is one of the keys to a successful move. Make sure that you keep all of the documents that you need in one place. Label all of your boxes.
Hire a Moving Company
Hiring a moving company is worth the money. Not only can a moving company safely get your belongings to the new place, but they can also pack them up. However, it is important to make sure that you choose a reputable moving company.
Ask for Help
There is nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it. You can get your family members and friends to help you pack and unpack. Make sure that you thank anyone who helps and be willing to return the favor.
Get Plenty of Rest
Sleep is something that make take a backseat when you move. However, if you do not get enough rest, then the process will be a lot more stressful. Moving can be mentally and physically-exhausting. You will be less stressed, and the moving process will be a lot easier.
