Moving is a stressful event for most people. But it doesn’t have to be. There are things you can do to stay calm and stress free during your move. Here are some tips from Cookson Movers & Storers on how to stay calm and stress free during a house move.

  1. Start early – Don’t leave everything to the last minute. Start packing early and get organised. The more you have done in advance, the less stressful it will be on moving day.
  2. Get rid of stuff you no longer need – One of the best ways to reduce stress is to declutter your home before you move. Get rid of anything you no longer need or use. This will not only lighten your load, but it will also make packing and unpacking easier.
  3. Pack a survival kit – Pack a survival kit with everything you’ll need for the first few days in your new home. This should include items like toiletries, phone chargers, snacks and drinks, and a change of clothes. Having everything you need in one place will make life much easier during those first few chaotic days.
  4. Label all your boxes – This will save you a lot of time and stress on moving day. Label all your boxes with what is inside and which room they need to go in.
  5. Hire a professional mover – Hiring a professional mover will take a lot of the stress out of your move. They will pack and load your belongings carefully and efficiently. And they will deliver them to your new home safely.
  6. Stay positive – Try to stay positive throughout the process. It can be helpful to think about all the positive aspects of your move, such as having a fresh start in a new home and making new memories.
  7. Take breaks – If you start to feel overwhelmed, take a break. Go for a walk, watch a movie or just take some time out for yourself and relax.
  8. Ask for help – Don’t try to do everything yourself. Ask friends and family for help with packing, moving and unpacking. And if its too much you can always take advantage of our professional packing service.

By following these tips, you can stay calm and stress free during your house move. So give them a try and see how they work for you.
