When you have to make a move it can be a very stressful time as changes are coming and you will leave your comfort zone. But if you have to do it and you have no other choice, you can ensure that your move is not a source of added stress in your life. This will allow you to do it in a temporary way rather than in a way that causes you anxiety.

There are many ways to reduce stress when you have to make a move, you can even enjoy the moment! Change is always new opportunities to start over, and to do better. If you want to know the most appropriate strategies so that your move is not a source of stress, keep reading.


Doing things early will help you to have things under control and you will feel more secure. If you have to act fast you can feel anxious, but if you can plan the ideal would be to have at least 8 weeks. It is better to plan this way, especially if you have to hire other people’s services such as furniture assembly and disassembly, transportation services , etc.


To stay organized in your move you need to make a list of everything you need to do and then divide those tasks into the weeks ahead. This will allow you to have enough days to complete everything. If you’re not sure where to start, think about the most important thing to do first.


In a move it is better to do things without clutter. This will help you feel in control and make everything more organized. It will also help you that when you start saving things, you will only save what you need and it will be easier for you to get rid of what you do not need. It is very frustrating to save things that you will later throw away when you get to your new home.

Ask for help if you need it

Sometimes it may be difficult for you to ask for help, but it may be necessary to do so, especially if you notice that you are overwhelmed by all the tasks you have to do. People who have gone through a move know how complicated it can be, so if you need help talk to me or family members who will dedicate hours to help you.

Say goodbye

You will need a little time to say goodbye to your old life, you can even have a party at your house before you leave. Invite friends and family over for dinner. Enjoy the memories and live them one last time. This will help you make the transition from old to new. You will enjoy the moment, and that is what matters.

Treat yourself

Why not? It may be what you need. When you finish your move, take a break to indulge yourself like getting enough sleep or going out for a drink with someone you care about. In a move you can spend several days sleeping little and you will be tired, so taking care of yourself and indulging yourself may be good for you.

Take care of your needs

Sleep and eat well. This is the first thing that is ignored when there is stress but it is very important that you take it into account so that you are healthy, happy and can do things better. So get enough sleep and eat balanced. Don’t skip meals.

Let things flow

You may run into adversity, moving always happens. For this reason, let things flow and take care of them as they happen. It allows you a little leeway so you can feel calm even when chaos surrounds you.

And remember, if you notice that anxiety invades you … breathe!
