Author: spencer   September 10, 2019

Let’s be honest. Moving is the worst. All of the stress that comes with it, is enough to do you in. But, life must go on… right? You’re excited about your new adventure, but there are a lot of things you must do before you reach your destination. If you’ve never moved, you’re in for a treat. Don’t let yourself get too overwhelmed because you will make it and you will be fine. 

How to make the moving process less overwhelming:

  1. Make a list 
  2. Focus on the task at hand
  3. Keep your necessities in a separate space
  4. Breathe

Make a list 

Do you know what you need to do? It’s important that you make a list. Stressing about what needs to be done and what is already done can waste a lot of time. Don’t let petty things overwhelm you. Take the time to list out everything you need to do. This will also help you feel accomplished when you can scratch each thing off of your to-do list. 

Focus on the task at hand

What are you doing at this moment? It is very important that you focus on what you are currently doing rather than what else needs to be done. This could cause you to really mess things up due to your lack of focus. If you are not focusing on the details, you are more likely to forget important steps or misplace things you really need.

Keep your necessities in a separate space

There are things you need on a daily basis, like your toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, towels, work clothes, etc. You want to make sure that you keep these things in an emergency bag or in a separately labeled box. This way, your important items won’t be lost in the boxes that are being moved to your new place. 


Don’t stress yourself out too much. You will get through the moving process and all will be okay. Take the time to relax and breathe. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself. Being stressed out during the move will not help anything, it will only make things worse. 

If you are looking to make your move a success, you may also want to consider hiring movers. Professional movers are licensed and trained to help you with your transition.
