Ways to Destress Before Your Move from Denver Movers


March 8, 2017

A move is an exciting time. You are making the next step in your life and are working towards your next goal. Whether it being your new dream home or a stepping stone on your way to your dream home, it can be much work. From organization and packing to healthy habits, there is much you can do to make your move a much more pleasant experience. Try some of these tips from Denver movers for your upcoming move.

Organize and Plan

Once you know you will be moving, begin to build out a timeline of all the things you need to do. For instance, as bills and mail come in, begin to make a list of all the places you need to change your address. You can also use Life Hacker’s change of address guide for more places. Next, begin to find boxes everywhere you can. Try putting the word out at your work or other activities that you are looking to take boxes off people’s hands. You can also go to grocery stores and other locations and ask them if they have any boxes they don’t need. This will help save on money for boxes. Last, think of the day of your move and what you will need that day.

Slowly Pack in Advance

Many take the week or few days before a move to pack. However, there is so much in a home that is usually not used often that can be packed in advance. This will make for a less stressful experience before a move. You could begin packing a month before a move. One of the ways to get started is to get rid of things you do not need. If the weather is nice, you can hold a yard or garage sale. In other cases, you can sell them online via places such as Facebook’s Marketplace, the LetGo app, Craigslist and more. Once you have purged unwanted items, make a list of all the closets and items you have things stored in and begin packing those. That way, you can handle the rest the week or days leading up to your move.

Healthy Habits

Moving is a workout. One of the best ways to be at the top of your game is through healthy habits. Be sure to get plenty of sleep that works best for you. Next, stay well hydrated with water. Eating well will help you feel better as well. Avoid processed foods and beverages filled with sugar and sodium. These items can make you feel lethargic. During your move, eat snacks throughout the day such as nuts, bananas and apples. The less processed the food, the better you will feel. Last, stretch before your move. This will help warm your muscles up. Also, when lifting boxes, remember to lift with your legs and not your back to avoid injury.
