Schedule your movigIf possible, plan your moves in advance; constantly try to visualize yourself in a new place. The more often and minutely you imagine your new life, the sooner your anxiety level will decrease and it will become easier for you and your family to handle the novelty.

Never leave packing until the last minute.  Keep a notebook with a to-do list, phone numbers, addresses and everything you should remember. Prioritize what needs to be done first and what can wait.  Sign all the boxes with stuff according to the room they will stay in the new location.

Pack the necessary things and toss the old junk from the attic. Don’t take the unnecessary extras to the new place. The process of eliminating the clutter will help you to leave the past and look forward to the future.


Relax and think positive

The most important is to get enough sleep, to eat well and to divert your attention away sometimes to devote time for yourself or treat yourself with pleasant moments spent your family or friends.  Take care of yourself and your health, chill out and create a balance in your life between problems and leisure.

Buying new house cane be exciting but also a bit stressful, as you have to say goodbye to your current house, so don’t forget to organize a going away party and invite your friends or family, try to recollect all the nice and funny moments, which happened to you in that place. Say “thank you” for all the years spent there. That will help you to get a feeling that some phase of your life is finished.

Despite your plans and efforts, some things may go wrong. Be prepared for unexpected and remember to keep calm.  Make the “Plan B” listing the back-up options to reduce stress and be ready for anything.

The positive thing is, that moving to a new place can help you to build new routines, for example, you always planned to go running in the morning, but constantly found an excuse. Do it, once you arrive to the new place and make it a regular thing.   

The most important is to find positive sides in everything.  As the result, life will become happier and brighter and you will never suffer from stress.
