Moving is never easier or exactly a blast, but there are some things that you can do to make it a little easier to stomach. If you are preparing to move soon, read along, because I am sharing 3 ways to make moving a little easier – and a little less depressing. Nobody loves to move, but once you get into your new home, it makes it worth it!
Make packing fun
No matter how many times you have moved in the past, I bet you always get a knot in your stomach when you think about having to pack up all of your stuff. One of the reasons that you might be feeling this way is because you have so much stuff. From clothes to decor to shoes and junk and kitchen items, etc. etc. the list goes on and on.
The thought of packing everything up and then unpacking again is just extremely daunting. But, I think that if you make packing a little more fun, it can be less daunting and stressful!
So, if you are moving soon, make it more fun! To make packing a bit easier and better, you could focus on setting the ambiance to make it more enjoyable. Turn on the music, light a few candles or pull out the essential oils, and put a really great dinner in the Instant pot or crockpot to treat yourself after the fact (or order in!).
I have to say – when you make it more fun, it helps a ton. Half of the time (if you are doing it right), you won’t even realize you are packing because you are so focused on singing and dancing to your favorite songs. I highly recommend this packing method!
Focus on one thing at a time
I think one of the most difficult aspects of moving is the sheer number of things, both large and small, that need to get done by a certain time and date. From finding a new home or apartment to calling the utility company and doing all of the paperwork in between, when you add it all up, it can be overwhelming (just like packing…or even more so!).
My best tip? Focus on one thing at a time, even if that only required a quick phone call or two. As a multi-tasking wizard, this can be difficult for me but why create more stress than you need to? Instead, try to do one thing at a time. I have found that it can really help with relieving the sense of stress and overwhelm that often comes with a big move.
Give yourself a break
For some reason, I get these notions in my head that I can do it all. I’ll take on more while going through a big life change, or a stressful time, assuming that I can totally handle it all on my own. Instead of trying to be a superwoman, I have been trying to give myself a break when I am going through a big change (like moving), or even during a really stressful time, without a move involved.
This can go for social situations, as well. I find that I am extra sensitive when I am going through a major transition or a stressful time, so I try not to put so much pressure on myself. Be honest with your friends, family members, and co-workers. They will understand more than you think!
A great way to give yourself a break when it comes to moving specifically is to outsource aspects of your move. Maybe it is the cleaning process, childcare, or moving services. If it is the latter, make sure you are finding a really well-known (and greatly rated) moving company such as Texans Movers. They are Texas Residential Movers and they are here to serve you, with the utmost respect and care possible.
