Relieving Your Moving Stress
based on 1163 visitor(s)
As you prepare to move, you may feel as if you are planning two simultaneous moves: relocating to your new home and moving out of your current location.
You may feel as though you are being pulled in two different directions, as the stress of your pending move continues to rise. Luckily, there are various ways to relax that can help you relieve your moving stress.
If you have a list of items to organize, then you can start planning which rooms to pack first. This list can be used to give you specific
goals for each room. Make sure to give yourself time to pack, since certain rooms may take longer to sort through than others. You want to avoid exacerbating the stress of trying to finish packing a room in one day, when it might actually take three days.
Daily Stress Relief
Time might be in short supply before you move, so relieving your stress whenever you get some down-time can help you develop a stress-relief routine. If time is an issue, then the following suggestions may fit into a busy schedule:
Take a walk.
Turn off the news.
Take a short vacation.
Supplement Your Stress Relief
Perhaps you want to supplement your daily activities with more long-term solutions for your moving stress. Removing or reducing other stresses in the following ways can make a positive impact on your move.
Keep your contact list current.
It can be difficult to move away from friends and family. Keeping an up-to-date contact list can help you feel connected to people you care about.
Ease the stress of commuting.
Your commute can contribute to moving stress. Creating a list of songs to listen to while you go to work can reduce your stress level. Also, listening to books on tapes can be a soothing commute activity.
Cook nutritious meals.
Eating well and keeping a healthy diet will help you feel good about yourself as you move to your new home.
Make sure that you give yourself enough time to plan, pack, and relax. Relocating can be overwhelming, but you can explore ways to circumvent and reduce stress before you move. Finding ways to relieve your moving stress can help you positively transition into the next phase of your life.
