Coping with Stress when You move

Let’s face it, moving all your things and uprooting from your home, is not the easiest thing in the world to do. It may be downright traumatising if you’re ill -prepared for what’s to come and you don’t know where to start! If you’ve got family and loved ones moving with you, the task can seem even more daunting. But slow down and take a breather, we’ve got some tips for you from the best removalists in Sydney to get you through planning and executing your move.

  • A stress-FREE move may not be possible
    And the quicker that you admit this, the easier it becomes for you to manage the stress that comes. Be prepared that anything that can happen, will probably happen and having a contingency plan will be able to help you keep those nerves in check and reassure you that the show can still go on!
  • Take frequent time-outs to collect your thoughts
    Don’t overwork yourself! You need to take a breather from time to time and go over what has happened and what you’ve done so far. It’ll help you to get an overview of the situation and plan out the next step so that you can keep chugging along! Step out for a coffee or at least out for lunch so you don’t have to worry about preparing something to eat on top of planning!
  • Plan something Other than The Move
    And we’re not talking about procrastination! Think of something that you may look forward to in your new neighbourhood. Maybe join a club or plan a mini get-away for the family to celebrate having a successful transition. An outing or even just a night out will be a welcome relief once the ordeal of moving is over
  • Get a Good Rest the day (and night) before Moving Day
    Last but not least, you need to have all your wits about you on moving day and being tired is not going to be good for your mood either. Try to keep the day and night before moving day free so that you can go over last minute items it you need to and get some good shut eye. After all, this is the last time in your old home, so why not make some great last memories of being rested and well-relaxed?

Above all, take things slowly and remember that not everything has to go perfectly. A move is a big event in your life and whatever things may happen, we hope that you can look back on the day fondly and with good memories!
