How To Keep Your Stress Down When Moving
Is stress getting the best of you when it comes to moving? Have you procrastinated because you’re not sure where to begin? Are you avoiding the packing process altogether? You might be surprised to find out you’re not alone. If you’re planning to move to New York or New Jersey, you may feel overwhelmed by the journey ahead of you, but we want you to know there’s no need to worry.
Over the years, we’ve watched family, friends, and neighbors move all over. Some relocated for jobs, while others might have returned home from school. We can admit that the moving process can be tricky, but if you plan, your move can be efficient and less stressful. These are our suggestions on how to manage stress while you’re moving.
Make sure you get your rest
We know it’s important to get sleep, but it should be a priority while moving. After all, from errands to moving day, you will need your energy to get everything done. Moving can be a big undertaking, but if you’re getting your rest, you’ll feel a lot more prepared.
The good thing about StorageBlue is that we like to support our customers every step of the way. Do you need help getting your items to your storage unit? No problem, we provide contactless pickup and delivery to our facility. Looking for moving supplies? We sell boxes, locks, bubble wrap, and other important packing supplies. Just about anything you would need can be found at our Ferry Street StorageBlue and other facilities.
It doesn’t matter if you’re moving one town over or across the country. You’ll need to create a plan on how you’ll pack and prepare for your big move. Will you handle everything yourself, or will you book movers? There are a lot of decisions to make, and the sooner you start planning, the better. Incorporating a storage unit in your plan can help ease stress as you move.
People downsizing might be wondering what to do with their extra furniture. If you’re not looking to bring it to your new home, but you don’t want to sell it yet, use your storage unit as a backup plan as you decide.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help
Stop yourself from feeling overwhelmed and reach out to family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers that can help you. Even if you only need help packing or to watch the kids on moving day, having a set of extra hands can go a long way. Divide and conquer as much as you can so you don’t find yourself getting burned out.
Find ways to relieve stress
The best thing you can do when you’re not moving is to find ways to relieve your stress. Make sure you take advantage of whatever you can do to take your mind off moving during your free time. That could involve hobbies like playing tennis, going to the movies, or doing yoga. Newark is filled with so many activities, like soccer at the Red Bull Arena or taking a class in Downtown Newark. Not only will it help your mental health, but it will also help you physically. If you are moving a lot of boxes, then it won’t hurt to have some extra strength to get through your move.
