3 Simple Ways to De-Stress During the Moving Process

Untitled design-12

Nobody likes moving

It’s hard.

It’s stressful.

And it’s exhausting.


But it doesn’t have to be.


Here are 3 simple tips to make your next move much less stressful:

  1. Take measurements in your new home and then measure your furniture. Be really, really, REALLY honest with yourself. Are you going to use that gigantic black solid oak entertainment center in your new home? If not, get rid of it. You don’t want to have to move anything you’re not going to keep. Trust me on this. Moving is the perfect time to purge through allllll your belongings. If you don’t use an item in your current home, chances are, you won’t use it in a new home either!
  2. Use technology. There’s a great app called Moving Van that lets you create a file for each box and put photos of all the items inside it. No more playing the “What’s in the Box?” game or trying to remember your color coding system to help you remember where the toaster is. Move Advisor is another example of an app made just for this purpose — you can use it for everything from your timeline, home inventory, and finding movers in your community.
  3. Go easy on yourself. Remember — no matter how much you streamline your moving process, this is still a stressful time. And in stressful times, you need to support yourself. If that means ordering in, creating a motivating playlist, bribing friends to come help you, you do it. And don’t forget to celebrate. You’re turning a corner and starting a new life in a new home. And that’s the best part of the whole process!
