How To Reduce Stress When Relocating
There's so much stress involved in relocating, but there are also ways to lighten your load and help make your move more manageable. Here's a short list of things you can do:
1. Plan early. This comes into play in finding a good moving company, packing your things, letting people know of your move, preparing the family, finding a new job, securing your new residence, and much more. The earlier you start planning, the more time you're giving yourself to think of things that you need to do and gather everything you need. You're also giving yourself more allowance to make mistakes.
2. Notify. Make sure that your phone/cell phone company, credit card company, utility companies, and others are duly informed of your move. This will keep you from possible mix-ups that can cost you time and money.
3. Set up the new place a.s.a.p. You'll want to move to your new residence before the rest of your family does so that you can have time to fix up. When the family arrives, they should be able to feel as at home as quickly as possible, and that means having a welcoming new home.
