No one argues that moving is a big stressful event in our lives. We can almost feel cortisol (the stress hormone) being released! But when you have professionally trained movers, it is a lot easier to keep track of your furniture, lamps, books, and kitchen utensils and have an organized unpacking.
Speaking of organized…have you seen the house or apartment you would be moving to? Is it larger or smaller than your current home? Make sure and visit the new place and see the layout. That way you will know what furniture or decor items you are keeping and what can go to a donation center or at least a storage for now. It also helps to know if you have a tight corner in your living room and that your current couch might just not fit. Or the staircase is so narrow that it might take you awhile to figure out how to get your king size mattress upstairs.
It is beneficial to have your house plan or layout before you move. It will help reduce moving time and the hassle of just unloading the boxes and then having to move them by yourself. Walking through the house and visualizing where you can put things will help your move go smoother. Moving Insider recommends: “Be sure to communicate clearly to the people who are helping you move the furniture from the moving truck.” Once the plan is communicated, you can just relax and let the movers take care of it.
Among other tips for stress free unpacking: Labeling boxes and rooms with the same color sticky notes. You won’t need to direct the movers when they carry in boxes and if you are moving yourself this will definitely save you trips up and down the stairs. Consider unpacking the necessities, like kitchen and bathroom supplies first. Keep that moving day box handy! You’ll be surprised how simple things like disposable plates, cups, and paper towels can keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
