Mental Health Makeover: Acting Like You’re Moving
Moving is regarded as one of the most stressful things that one can do in life, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The stress of moving often comes from the anxiety of living in a new place, establishing new relationships, and in many ways, restarting your life, so putting all of that aside: is moving really that stressful? Or can it be a great way to clear your mind? Acting like you’re moving and the way it forces you to evaluate your possessions, and by extension your life, can be a really cathartic and productive use of your time.
Ending the Clutter
In New York, having a storage unit it almost as necessary as having an elevator. With real estate at the price level that it is today, it’s nearly impossible to find an apartment that is a livable size for you and able to accommodate all of the things you’ve seemed to amass over your lifetime. Deciding to go through everything you own, sorting what to keep and what you can trash, can be the first step in not only clearing your apartment, but clearing your mind.
Selling the Excess
Once you’ve sorted through all of your belongings, chances are that there’s a lot that you don’t need. Money, or rather lack thereof, is easily one of the biggest stressors that we all have to worry about, so help relieve the stress and make a quick buck! Sell your discarded belongings! And though they will definitely take time to sell, whether you do it through a garage sale, Craigslist, or eBay, it’s going to take at least a little bit of effort to get your items on the market and into someone else’s home. If some of the items that you’ve decided to sell are on the larger side, consider hiring a local moving company to do the heavy lifting for you! By hiring professional movers, you lessen the risk of damaging your stuff, meaning you can get more money for it.
Moving is no breeze, and deciding to fake a move to help your mental health seems insane. However, being forced to organize your home and compartmentalize your things will result in a natural organization of your mind. Once you have everything clean, clear, and sorted, your home can feel brand new, and sometimes all we need to get out of a rut is to make a little change.
