4 Steps to Take the Stress Out of Moving

Moving into a new home can be a double-edged sword. 

On the one hand, you’re excited about starting a new life somewhere else, even if that somewhere else is only on the other side of the city. It can also be one of the most stressful experiences and this is something people don’t always consider when they sell and buy a house.

This can either become an exciting experience or a horrible one, which means you won’t appreciate your new home the way you want to, at least not right away. So today I'm here to share four steps you can take the stress out of moving. 



Give Yourself Time to Get Organized 


No good will come by putting off packing and other organization demands in the weeks leading up to your move, so make sure you get on top of that as soon as possible. You can start small, packing away the little items that you won’t need, and then gradually moving the big pieces the closer you get. 


Likewise, you should also find a quality, well-respected moving process. Whether you ask friends and family to lend a hand or work with companies such as SMARTBOX Solutions, Inc., you can trust that your items are in safe hands, wherever you are going. 


Donate What You Can’t Take 


Don’t try to stuff everything into the back of the moving van. There will always be some items that you cannot take with you, but you must accept this quickly. 


It can be hard saying goodbye to certain items that you have grown to love, but you don’t need to throw them away. Instead, donate them to local charity stores or even friends and family to ensure these items go to a good home. 


Inform Friends & Family 


You can’t just move house and expect everyone to know where you have gone. You will need to let as many people know as possible. This includes more than just friends and family, though. You’ll also need to inform your employer, the bank, the hospital, and even the electoral roll. 


This will ensure all of your details are up-to-date, and it will minimize any issues that you might encounter. If you’re moving across the country, it might be worth rerouting your mail to a safe place in the meantime so that you don’t need to travel back to pick up your credit card bill. 


Pack a Survival Kit 


The last thing you’ll want to do when you get to your new place is unpack, which is why a Moving Survival Kit is an excellent way to make sure your first night is at least comfortable. Pack a box full of essentials, such as some pots and pans (unless you want to order in), as well as smaller items like shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and anything else you will need the next day.


Maintain Stress-Free


You might still feel a little stressed when moving day comes. Yet, as long as you’re organized, working with a quality moving company, and have all the essentials you need to make the first night in your new home comfortable, you will get off on the right foot, which is the best that you can hope for in the next stage of your life.


At the end of the day the best way to destress is to take some time for you. Take a nice warm bath, read a book, do some meditation yoga, or have some wine or simply unwind with Holistik Wellness Stress Stiks.
