Moving Pains? Learn How To Reduce Your Stress

Hire early for a stress free move

Moving in NYC is not stressful at all. Why, all you do is pick up a couple boxes and shift them around. You are good to go. Roll credits.

If you believed that, I have a bridge to sell you in New York City. Stress is the biggest, more taxing part of any NYC move. There are so many moving parts, a number of people involved, and so many things to remember to change that you feel as though the weight on your chest is drowning you. Reducing your stress will make moving in NYC survivable and here we will tell you how.

Acceptance

Just the thought of moving your apartment and you already feel anxious, there is no completely stress free move. Accepting that stress is part of the moving process will help steel your inner self to understanding you must go through it to get to the light on the other side. Throughout our lives, especially with kids or our work place, we accept stress as a part of our daily life. While moving includes a higher level of stress than normal, it is still something we can take on for this short burst of time.

Plan for Time

Time is one of the larger problems in a move. You are trying to wrap up your time at the old home, get into the new home. You are trying to time the utility hook ups and shut offs, you are trying to get the movers ready and give them enough time to get everything done.

This is not a high school book report. You cannot wait until the last minute to plan everything. In fact, the sooner you start planning and preparing, the easier moving day will be. Some steps, like planning movers or a moving truck need to be done well in advance to avoid them not being available on the date you need them.

Packing your apartment will take time. Most people keep putting it off until it is the last minute and they become overwhelmed and fall victim to paralysis by analysis. Start way in advance. Pack one box a day for a full month and you suddenly have thirty or so boxes packed up and ready to go. The slow, methodical process of a box a day will allow for careful packing and labeling. A rush job could mean mislabeling or worse, broken stuff.

We at Divine Moving understand that the best laid plans are only good until the first bullet is fired but having no time to plan will bring chaos and disaster so give yourself time to plan and prepare.

Organization is the Key to Victory

Make a list. Put it on your phone, or the back of an envelope. No one really cares. Just make one. Keep it on hand every day until the move. Add stuff as it comes to mind and tick stuff off as you complete them. By the time moving day has arrived and seeing all the checked off tasks, you will feel more in control from having accomplished so much. You will have minimized the number of tasks that might get missed and rarely are those tasks that are forgotten monumentally important.
