Stress is an integral part of moving. Prior to the move, it is common to feel frustrated, anxious, and stressed. Many people undermine the amount of preparation involved in the moving process. They do not start move planning until there isn’t enough time before the move. This is when the moving stress quickly sets in for the homeowners. The key to moving without stress requires a lot of pre-move planning. You need to give yourself some time to organize and prepare for the move. The less time you have, the more likely you will skip through the tasks and make small mistakes. When you are working under the pressure of time, this will only compound your moving stress.
Fortunately, there are certain things that can reduce the moving stress from your moving day. Below are six ideas on how to help you reduce moving stress:
1. Make a moving checklist
There are lot of things to do when moving. It’s quite common to forget or overlook some of small things during the moving process. To ensure you don’t forget the most important tasks, you should prepare a to-do list. Mote down all the things that you need to do before moving day such as paying bills, notifying post office about change of address etc. If you remember something, note down your thoughts immediately. This list can reduce your moving stress as you will be organized on the moving day. A list makes sure that you take care of every task since it clearly states what needs to be done. You can write-off each task once it is completed. Creating the to-do list will help you to stay organized and prepared.
