There is no doubt in the fact that moving can be an exhausting process, but there are fortunately ways to prepare that can lighten the burden. It is essential to give yourself three months to plan for the move, even if you hire a professional moving company. Not taking enough time to properly prepare will naturally increase your nerves, making the experience much more stressful. Another way to lessen these nerves is by plotting out which situations could go wrong, and effectively preparing yourself with the tools and knowledge on how to fix each situation.
- It is recommended to give yourself at least three months to prepare for your move. This advice is still accurate for those who hire professional movers.
- Maintain a high level of cognitive fluency throughout your move by taking time for yourself and going out with friends for a breather.
- You can help reduce your level of anxiety by thinking of worst case scenarios, and then thinking about how you would effectively handle them.
