There are two words that can take every person to come apart at the seams, make them tremble and bring along sleepless nights. The words moving out have been, are, and will be for the end of times compared with the undesirable feelings of stress, insanity, loneliness and of course, impatience. But why it has to be seen like that? Somehow you manage yourself to see it as one of the most stressful events that would ever happen in your life. I can’t deny that it’s definitely a huge transition, even more when you are moving out of state, where it’s definitely the start of a new story. Whenever you move out of state you will kind of be starting from scratch, new home, new postal code, new job, new health care providers, new friends, new EVERY-THING. Moving out of home can certainly make you go crazy if you are not willing to take it with patience and the best of the attitudes.
There are lots of ways to ease the stress of moving so you can actually enjoy the moment, but how about if we begin with five? So you can start right ahead planning your move stress-free!
1. PLAN AHEAD.
Plan forward, as much as possible. The planning ahead gives you the heartwarming feeling of making things the way they should be done; it gives you peace of mind and serenity once you start organizing everything that come across your path. So, you may want to add this extra event to your calendar because if you decide to organize your move just a few days before you would be caught with a lot of details the day you plan to leave out of state, such as start-up costs that will be incurred when beginning to reside in the new location.
2. DON’T BITE OFF MORE THAN YOU CAN CHEW.
Sometimes it happens that you want to manage everything and you end up failing big (I have a point here, really). Moving out of state is a huge deal, it is not means of taking your belongings to another house and that’s it, you’re set. No. As a matter of fact you would have to take out an entire day to pack, lift, carry, push, throw and perhaps drive your stuff to your next home place and it sure sounds overwhelming, right? This is why you should not take care of your whole move by yourself, there is always somebody willing to help; ask a friend or two to help you get your things organize.
3. STAY HAPPY. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS.
We know that a new city can be scary and the fact of leaving places and people you appreciate behind makes you feel a little blue. Although it is very important to be in control of your emotions when moving out, as you can be caught in a severe break-through of mixed feelings that might be reason to burst out. Remember that being patient will help you see the big picture, weight any pros and cons and proceed calmly when faced with difficulties.
4. KEEP MOVING. BE ACTIVE.
This solves so much frustration and guarantees a happy moving process. As long as you keep active you will see a great difference in your mood and will take away that feeling of anxiety from moving out of state, besides planning your move is a mental exercise in memory and mindfulness, so you got to keep up with an active mind in order to not overlook anything before recreating an entire life in another location.
5. RELY ON EFFECTIVE MOVING FACILITIES.
Hey, there is no need to lift 250lb furniture by yourself, neither carry your belongings from your room to your car and then finding out it would be impossible to fit all those boxes inside your small car trunk, besides having the chance to get hurt when lifting a heavy box or piece of furniture. If you’re moving out soon it will work best for you if you rely on an effective moving company that can guarantee a smooth move while you take care of other errands. Letting that professional movers handle your big interstate move will definitely take away a huge weight out of your mind.
