Helpful Tips To Get You Ready For Your Big Move
Moving creates incredible opportunities for change, but it also forces you to reflect on your life in deep ways and leave your comfort zone – quite literally. You reset your life, your orientation, and your social circle. Anxiety can take particular hold if you’re heading across the country to start a new job or move in with a new boyfriend or girlfriend. Reduce your stress with these simple tips.
1. Start planning as early as possible.
Once you know you will be moving, contemplate your end goals and brainstorm how you’ll deal with challenges and opportunities at your destination. For instance, choose a Bay Area moving company, arrange the end of your current lease, and select and schedule the installation of services at your new residence.
2. Eliminate clutter.
Axing clutter is all the rage, thanks to a series of bestselling books and popular blog posts. Hoarding tethers you to the past in ways that prevent growth and new experiences. The fewer belongings you lug along with your move, the lower your stress levels should be. Before you start packing, sort through your stuff and get rid of anything you don’t absolutely need. It’s easy to replace things like clothes and supplies. If you must store sentimental items, condense them, and separate the wheat from the chaff. (You don’t need EVERY piece of art your toddler brought home from preschool.)
Having too much on your plate worsens the anxiety associated with moving. Pass along responsibilities to others as much as you can. For example, rather than rush home from work early as you’re wrapping up your old job to box all your belongings, outsource that project. Allow an experienced long-distance moving company to handle both the packing and transportation of your belongings.
