New View Moving Phoenix AZ | Ways to Make Moving Day Less Stressful
Moving can be a stressful experience, but there are some things you can do to make it less so. Here are a few tips:
Start packing early and label all your boxes.
Moving is hard. Whether you’re moving or staying put, it’s stressful. And if you have a tight deadline, like the upcoming holiday season, it can be downright awful!
The good news is that there are things you can do to make your move less of a headache and more of an adventure: start packing early and label all your boxes; pack up breakable items first so they don’t get broken in transit; set aside some time for decluttering ahead of time so you’ll have room for new stuff when you arrive at your new home; give yourself plenty of notice about parking restrictions near your old house before the day itself – this way it won’t come as a surprise on Moving Day.
Plus, once everything has been moved into your new place, take a few minutes to walk through each room and imagine where you’d like things to go. This will help your unpacking process go much faster once everything is out of the boxes!
Make a list of everything you need to do and check items off as you go.
Making a list and checking items off as you go is one of the best ways to make sure that everything gets done. It’s a tried and true method that many people swear by. And there are good reasons why it works so well. First of all, when you make a list, you are explicit about what you need to do. You can’t fool yourself into thinking that just because you have an idea, the task is automatically done. No, when it’s down on paper (or on your phone), it’s staring you in the face, screaming for attention. Secondly, by checking things off as you go, you create a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Even if the task is only partially completed, crossing it off the list gives you a dopamine hit that makes you feel good and encourages you to keep going. And lastly, it’s a great way to keep track of your progress. When you can see what you’ve accomplished, it’s easier to stay motivated and focused.
Delegate tasks to friends and family members who are helping you move.
Delegate tasks to friends and family members who are helping you move. Delegating is the best way to avoid the stress of moving, which can hurt your health. The last thing you want while trying to go through this stressful process is to also be dealing with other stresses at the same time. Delegating will keep your mental clarity so that you can focus on what’s important – packing up your belongings and getting them in order before moving day arrives. Many things need attention when it comes to planning for a move: how much money will be needed, where should all these items go once they’re packed? It’s often easiest if someone else takes care of some of these tasks – especially if that person is more organized than you are!
Pack an essentials bag with things you’ll need on your first day in your new home.
Pack an essentials bag with things you’ll need on your first day in your new home. This will include phone chargers, toiletries, clothes for the next few days (business casual), slippers, comfortable clothing for sleeping (and maybe even pajamas!), snacks/food that doesn’t require cooking or refrigeration like granola bars or protein bars and anything else you can think of that will be helpful during this transition period.
Another way to make sure you’re prepared for moving day is by having all of your paperwork in order. This includes your driver’s license, social security card, birth certificate, lease agreement/mortgage documents, and anything else you might need to prove your identity or residency. Having these items easily accessible will make the moving process much smoother.
Take breaks often and reward yourself for completing each task – moving is hard work!
By taking breaks often and rewarding yourself for completing each task, you can make the move more manageable. In addition, make sure to pack only what you need and donate or discard any unnecessary items. This will help lighten your load, both physically and emotionally. Finally, be sure to communicate with your family and friends throughout the process to stay organized and on track.
With a little bit of preparation and some positive thinking, moving day can be less stressful. By following these simple tips, you can make the big day a breeze. NewView Moving is here to help with any of your moving needs. Contact us today for a free quote! Phoenix, AZ’s top-rated movers.
