5 Self-Care Ideas for Lowering Your Stress Levels During a Move

by | Nov 30, 2022 | Features

Moving can be a very stressful time, and it is important to take care of yourself amid all of the chaos and stress. One way to care for yourself is to start the day with exercise. Exercising causes endorphins to be released, which are natural mood boosters. Another thing you need to do is make sure that you’re getting plenty of sleep. If you’re exhausted, you’re more likely to get injured while working hard with your body while moving.

Key Takeaways:

  • During exercise, the body releases endorphins that boost the mood, so work out early in the day.
  • Getting plenty of sleep and taking the time to relax will help relieve anxiety.
  • Taking a warm bath with Epsom salts is relaxing, especially when accompanied with candles or music.

“Self-care may seem like the last thing on your mind when you have boxes to pack, but it is crucial in reducing your anxiety and stress levels throughout the moving process. Self-care doesn’t have to mean glamorous trips to the spa and daily massages.”
