4 Tips for Dealing With the Stress of Moving, Puyallup, Washington

Whether you’re picking up and heading across the country or just moving to the other side of town, moving is almost always extremely stressful and emotionally draining. While reliable movers can ensure all of your belongings get to your new home in one piece, it’s much more difficult to get you and your family there with your sanity intact. While there may not be such a thing as a “stress-free” move, the tips below will help relieve some of the emotional pressure.

4 Tips for Reducing the Stress of Moving

1. Start Early

moverArranging and packing up all of your belongings always takes longer than you think it will, so get started as soon as you can. Booking your mover well in advance will also reduce the pressure of trying to arrange transportation at the last minute.

2. Leave One Area Alone

One of the most stressful elements of packing up your life is losing access to the items you use to relax. Setting aside an area of your house stocked with your favorite chair or hobby supplies will give you a sense of home, even in the middle of this chaotic process.

3. Remember to Exercise

Regular exercise boosts endorphins and keeps your mind occupied, reducing stress in even the most difficult situations. No matter how busy you might be, making time for physical activity will help you cope with the pressure of moving.

4. Hire a Good Mover

The right moving company will make every aspect of your move easier, giving you peace of mind so you can focus on settling into your new home. Before hiring movers, research all your options and read some reviews to find a reliable company that will take care of your belongings.
