6 Ways to Cope with Moving Stress

Packing materials

Moving can be stressful!

Let’s face it, moving is stressful. Not only do you have to figure out how you’ll move and then pack, you also have to get yourself and your family organized for the big day. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to help you feel less pressured.

1. Go for walks

Getting out of the house and going for a walk are excellent ways to break up your day and relieve stress.

2. Take a break from distractions

Try to stay away from things like television and the Internet during the day. Doing so will help you stay more focused on the tasks you need to complete.

3. Try meditation

Sit down in  a quiet place for a few minutes. Then close your eyes and focus on your breathing.  You’ll be amazed at how refreshed you feel afterwards.

4. Make an updated contacts list

By updating your contacts list, you’ll be able to rest more easily knowing that you’ll have the telephone numbers, email and physical addresses of friends, family, businesses and/or organizations you’ll want to stay in touch with after you move.

5. Plan a going-away party

It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant (for example, a potluck) and can include just a few neighbors and friends.  Whatever you decide, keep it light and fun.

6. Ease commuting stress with music

Moving day will be the most challenging one of all, in part because you’ll also be faced with having to make one or more trips to and from your new home.  Take CDs of your favorite songs with you to help ease travel/relocation stress.

Putting belongings you know you won’t immediately need in storage can also make your move less stressful.
