Feeling a little stressed out about your move? While it’s only natural to feel some anxiety around your move date, some people experience major amounts of stress. And, when you’re feeling overwhelmed, it can prevent you from getting the important stuff done which can add on more stress. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to help stay calm so that you can get organized and motivated. When you’re dealing with moving anxiety, take a deep breath and follow these steps.
Start as Early as Possible
Putting things off to the last minute, like packing, will only intensify your stress levels. You can avoid anxiety altogether by planning and organizing as soon as you know that you’ll be moving. The more time you give yourself to prep, the less stress you will experience as the day grows closer.
Create a Task List
Do you feel stressed every time you think about all the things you need to do? Are there too many thoughts going through your head all at once? You can get some serious relief by creating a task list. If you lay out everything that you need to do, prioritize items by the most important to least important, and assign due dates, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to get going on your tasks.
Get Rid of all the Clutter
Having less to move will make it much easier on you. So start throwing out all the clutter around the home that you won’t be bringing with you. The easiest way to organize is to focus on one room at a time and put all your belongings into separate piles: keep, sell, donate, and toss. As soon as you minimize the things you will be taking with you, the better you will start to feel.
Pick a Moving Company well in Advance
One of the most important things people often leave to the last minute is choosing their moving company. In reality, this is one of the first things you should do because the best moving companies book up fast and early. If you don’t want to be left without a mover or with one that has a bad reputation–you need to start researching moving companies in your area as soon as you have the moving date set. That way you can get them booked before it’s too late.
Ask for Help
If you’re feeling like the move is going to be too much for you to handle, ask for help. Many people try to do a move on their own to save a few dollars, only to realize after the fact that money spent on a moving company would have been well worth it.
