Feeling stressed and confused while trying to plan for an upcoming move? To help eliminate negative emotions and to provide you with more direction, here are four ways to reduce stress leading up to your local- or long-distance move:
- If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you need to take a few deep breaths and realize that this process is going to be a marathon—not a sprint. That said, it’s in your best interest to take it one day at a time and to continue living in the “present moment,” or else emotional distress will fog your ability to make wise decisions. Make sure you stay calm, and gain more clarity by putting together an organized plan.
- The first thing on your list of to-dos should be contacting a moving company in Warren County or any of its surrounding areas, like AAA Moving & Storage. By reaching out and discussing your relocation with a professional, you’ll have more peace of mind about what you need to do next to prepare for your transition into a new place. In addition, you’ll be able confirm when your movers will arrive to transport your belongings, and in turn, have a more structured outlook moving forward.
- Whether move-in day is in just a few weeks or two months, you need to factor into your planning when you can chip away at organizing your belongings. This entails throwing away or donating items, and grouping together things you’ll be taking with you based on which room they belong to, or other similarities like “delicates,” “kitchenware,” “clothing,” “furniture,” etc.). This way, you’ll start seeing progress, and as a result, feel more confident about the future success of your move.
- Decide whether you’ll have enough time and energy to pack everything. If not, make sure you let your moving crew know as soon as possible that you’ll also need them to pack up all your stuff. Don’t let this task spike your stress levels and create turbulence in your life during a time that should actually be more exciting than anything else. Instead, let the professionals at a company like AAA Moving & Storage pack and label everything in such a way that ensures its protection throughout the move, as well a simple and easy unpacking process.
