How To Reduce Stress When You Move

 How To Reduce Stress When You Move

Moving is a big and sometimes stressful task. It can seem like your to-do list never gets shorter, and your house can quickly get overrun with boxes everywhere. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to reduce your stress and make moving a bit easier to handle. 

Hire Movers

If you’re planning on asking friends and family to help you with your move, you might want to reconsider. While you might hope to have tons of help, you might actually find that only a few people show up – meaning your move is going to take much longer than you anticipated. 

Instead, contact a couple of moving companies St Louis and request some quotes. Because they do moving full-time, they know the best way to wrap and protect your items, so nothing gets broken. Additionally, you’ll likely already be exhausted from packing when moving day comes around, so save your energy by letting the movers do the heavy lifting. 

Organize Your Boxes

When packing, you’ll likely find that you have piles for everything: trash, give away, and things to go through later. Instead of adding to the chaos by putting boxes everywhere, choose one spot that they will all stay in.

For example, you could choose your garage as the storage place for everything. If you’ve emptied a dresser, move it to the garage. Each time you finish filling a box, move it to the garage. Not only will your house feel less chaotic, but having everything in one spot will make moving day much less stressful. 

Clean as You Go

One of the worst parts about moving is the cleaning you have to do when everything gets out of the house. Instead of waiting until the last minute, clean as you go. When you have entirely packed and emptied a room, clean it from top to bottom and close the door so people know to stay out of it. You might find that you have to adjust your living arrangements for a few days, but it will all be worth it when the moving day goes off without a hitch.
