How to Handle the Stress of Moving to a New House

How to Handle the Stress of Moving to a New House

There are few situations in life that are as fraught with stress as moving houses. There always seems to be far more stuff to handle and less time available than you thought. Then there is the hassle of not being able to find what you need when you need it, and of course getting all of your worldly possessions where they need to go without any incident. Moving, or rather the stress associated with it, can bring out the worst in people; which is why people are generally more than happy to use a furniture moving company to eliminate, or at least reduce the stress of moving.

Give Yourself as Much Time as Possible

There is far less time to plan, pack and move than you might think, and ensuring that you do everything without any mishaps takes a lot of time. So the earlier you start preparing and packing, the better it will be for you, and there will be less of a faff on moving day.

Don’t be a Hoarder

Moving day is an excellent opportunity for you to get rid of all of those old, useless artefacts that have been gathering in your home over the years. A till slip from seven-years ago? Chuck it. Your 21 year old son’s baby clothes? Why are you hanging on to that?

Take this opportunity to rid your life and home of clutter as you pack and avoid hanging on to those old things you don’t need anymore. It will make moving, packing and unpacking much easier for you.

Do Something to Treat Yourself

Break up the stress of moving by doing something that makes you feel good. Take yourself for lunch or spoil yourself with some retail therapy to get away from the bustle of a move. If you have a furniture moving company assisting you, you’ll be able to get more time to yourself to escape the stress of a move.

Just Let it Happen

Even the most carefully laid plans will likely not go your way note for note. So be prepared to have certain things not go your way. When anything unexpected occurs (like previously unnoticed damage to your TV cabinet, for instance), direct your attention elsewhere and just go-with-the-flow.

If you stress about each and every little thing going on during the move, you’ll be a wreck by the time you unpack in  your new home.
