How to Cope With Moving Stress
Moving can be stressful. At E.E. Ward Moving and Storage, we want your move to be an effortless and relaxed experience. Our friends at 1-800-Pack-Rat sent us over some tips to deal with the stress of moving. So sit back, relax, and enjoy!
1) Take care of yourself. Even though you think you don’t have enough hours in the day to do everything, make sure you’re still eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising, even if you only take a quick, daily walk.
2) Remember that these feelings are temporary. You’ll find a new “normal.”
3) Get excited about your new location. Contact the local Chamber of Commerce for literature and maps of your new area. Choose some interesting things to see and do, after you move, so you’ll have something enjoyable to look forward to.
4) Set aside time for R&R.; Even if you’re moving on short notice, don’t work non-stop at preparing for your move. Rent a movie one evening, or take the kids to the playground. You’ll accomplish more if you have time to rest and relax, so you’re not physically and mentally frazzled.
Our saleswoman, Abby Phillips, has one more tip to deal with the stress of moving. It’s “best to not take on more than you can handle. Allow the ‘experts’ (the moving company) to handle packing specialty items (breakables, china, odd shaped lamps) since they have the perfect boxes to do so. This will also save you time and money by not running around to 2 or 3 different stores looking for packing materials.”
We thank our customers for making us the Columbus movers of choice!
