When You're Stressed About Moving: Getting the Help You Need for Your Big Move to Lower Stress Levels

Moving can be a daunting task. Whether you have been living in your home for thirty years and are now scaling down to a smaller apartment or are choosing to move across the country, it can be overwhelming to even think about moving. If you don't want to rely on friends and family to help you move, it's time to work with a moving company that can help you pack your belongings and move them to your new home.

Get Organized to Keep Stress Levels Down

If you are going room to room unsure of what to pack, stop and take a break. Decide on what room you are going to pack first, and then get that room organized. If you have a spare bedroom you aren't using often, start there. Look around the room and determine what items you can give away and what items need to be thrown out. Make decisions about what you are going to keep, and try to stick to these decisions. Gather boxes, tape, markers, and other packing materials to make packing easier.

Get Rid of Stuff

Most people don't need half of the things they have in their home. If you find clothes you haven't worn in years, donate them. If you have old electronics that haven't been turned on in years, recycle them. Don't spend your time packing and moving items that you are only going to throw away in the future. Once you begin finding new homes for items you don't need anymore, you will feel less stressed about moving the items you do want to keep.

Invest in a Packing Service

If you don't have the time to pack your belongings, or you don't have the ability, you can hire a packing service to do the job for you. You can save a bit of money by doing some of your own packing and removing stuff from the home that you no longer want. If you are struggling with an upcoming move, it is worth it to spend money on a packing service such as Bekins Van Lines Inc that will get you prepared to move.

Ask Friends and Family for Specific Support

If you've helped many people move even though you didn't want to, you're not alone. Most people prefer not to be asked and will often find a reason not to help. If you have an item you need help with, ask for that specific item to be moved by a friend. When a person knows there is a specific job for them to do and not an open-ended day of moving, they are more likely to help you move some of your stuff.
