Everything about moving can be stressful. We have a few tips to help you manage stress during the process. From the selling or buying of a home to the packing and unpacking, there are moments of excitement and moments of anxiety so having your ducks in a row so to speak will help make the later moments minimal.
Allow for plenty of time– trying to rush through the moving process will do nothing but put added stress on the situation. Pre-planning for moving trucks etc., will help you also feel more prepared. Try not to leave anything to the last minute.
Hire professional movers-if you can fit it into your budget, having professionals come and pack the truck, haul the items, and unpack the truck in your new space is a lot less work for you. In addition, it will not only save your back from heavy lifting but will give you peace of mind knowing all your stuff is in one place.
Meet your new neighbors– who knows, they may even be nice enough to come help you unpack.
Rest– be sure to rest when you need too. Try and get as much sleep as possible and drink plenty of fluids. This will help you both mentally and physically.
