7 Tips to Avoid Stress In Moving To A New House

AM Moving Company — August 14, 2019

Moving is a stressful life transition, and there’s no getting around the fact that uprooting your life and relocating
to a new place is hard on the nerves. That being said, there are ways to reduce your stress levels when
moving. Here are 7 helpful tips:

1. Embrace Stress As Normal

A key component of reducing your moving stress is accepting that the stress you are feeling is normal. Starting out with this mindset helps prevent setbacks and allows you to “roll with the punches” instead of getting knocked down mentally or emotionally.

2. Plan For Extra Time

When you make your moving plans, allow yourself extra time to avoid a stressful time crunch. Nothing makes moving harder than not having sufficient time to pack, organize, and unpack after you arrive at your new home. Two days is standard to pack a studio or one bedroom apartment, three to four days for a two bedroom home and five to six days for a three bedroom home. You also want to start looking for a reputable moving company and planning your move with them as soon as you are able.

3. Do The Little Things First

If the idea of moving has you feeling helpless or paralyzed, you’re not alone: many homeowners feel this way when they set out to relocate. Begin by tackling small moving tasks daily, and soon enough they will add up to major moving tasks that needed to be handled. Progress is what matters, not the size of the task. This rule goes hand in hand with giving yourself enough time to


4. Organize Organize Organize

Label everything and sort boxes by content type and level of necessity in your new home. Keep needful things that you must access immediately packed separately from other less essential items. For example, don’t pack up your contracts and mortgage paperwork with your long term document storage. Keep those things out and
handy because you may need to refer to them before, during and after the move.

5. Hire A Professional Moving Company

Packing and transporting your worldly goods may be less expensive, but it can take a toll on your physically, emotionally and mentally it’s far more costly in the long term. Hiring professional movers alleviates a great deal of stress and frees you up to focus on the big picture aspects of your move.

6. Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

Your friends and family don’t need to help pack boxes and shift them onto a truck to help you move. Oftentimes their presence alone is enough to help you muster the determination to see the job through. Plan ahead so you can invite people to be present even for company when you move to help make the process easier on you.

7. Sleep

There is no need to drive yourself to the point of exhaustion over moving. If you feel overcome with stress to the point it’s affecting your sleep, you need to make sleep a priority until you are getting the rest you need. Keep your stress level low, and your move will be over and done before you know it.
