Moving Into A New Home: 4 Tips To Make The Move Easier

moving into a new homeThere are few things more exciting than moving into a new home. It’s an opportunity to start a new chapter in your life, put your roots down, and all-around enjoy the fun of living in a new place.

However, it’s not as if it’s all fun and games. The end result of moving into a new home might be positive. But the journey to get there can be problematic and stressful.

Below, we take a look at a few ways to smooth the process of moving into your new home.

Moving Into A New Home

1. Clear Out Old Goods

If your current home is cluttered, then it makes little sense to pack up that stuff and take it to your new home. You’ll only end up cluttering up your new home.

When you’re switching properties, you’ve got a great opportunity to clear out the old, and start your life in your new space with a clean slate.

So when you’re sure that you’re going to move, start going through your home and get rid of items that you no longer want or need.

You can donate them to a charity of your choosing. Or you can sell them and use the money you raise towards the cost of the move.

2. Get Organized

If you’ve never undertaken such a big move before, then you’ll quickly discover that, well, moving into a new home can be pretty challenging!

There are so many different components to the move. You’ll need to be well organized if you’re going to avoid having something of a breakdown.

So how can you stay on top of everything?

It’s all about …

  • starting early
  • making lots of lists
  • creating a schedule

3. Work with Experts

It’s unlikely that you’re a master at moving into a new homes. After all, how many times have you done it? Perhaps once or twice. But not enough to be considered a professional.

One of the reasons why moving into a new home can be so stressful is because you don’t have enough experience!

Fortunately, there are people who do have experience at moving into a new home. They’re professionals. And they can make your job much easier.

4. Reduce Stress However You Can

You can also make the task of moving into a new home easier by doing what you can to reduce various stressors.

For example, you won’t have much time to cook during the moving process. So explore cooking your meals beforehand. Everything is more straightforward to do when we’re not fighting hunger.

If you have children, then arrange for them to stay with a relative when you’re moving. They’ll be excited, which is of course a good thing. But, at the same time, it can be a little hard to manage your kids’ excitement, when there is so much happening around you during a big move.

You might also want to reduce stress by meditating a little each day.  I share a range of simple 2 minute meditations in my bestselling book: Instant Calm.
