How To Remove Stress During Your Gastonia Move

Let’s Not Have a Stressful Move?

No one really enjoys moving from one place to another. Moving is a stressful, chaotic, and exhausting event. The best way to take a large part of the stress off your plate is to hire a professional Gastonia moving company to do all the heaving lifting. If you plan on moving on your own, without the help of a professional mover, then you will want to find a way to de-stress yourself during the move. Below are Tru-Pak Moving Systems’ top 10 things you can do to help decrease your stress. At Tru-Pak Moving we take the stress and worry out of moving, across town, the state, or the nation.

#1 Try Yoga

We believe that yoga is a good way to calm your mind, body, and even spirit. Whether you do Yoga at home, the office, or at a local gym, try and make time for yourself to stretch and breathe. Even if you can only give yourself 10 minutes to decompress, that can really transform the way you feel. Helping to give you a better state of mind to deal with your upcoming move, try yoga, it could help.

#2 Try Meditation

Like all of the ideas we have listed in this blog, meditation is the easiest to help you relax. Simple meditation is a great way to block out the rest of the world and really focus on nothing. Find a quiet place in your home, or office, and just closing your eyes and focusing on your breathing and nothing else will help you relax. This simple technique can help decrease blood pressure, anxiety, and even stress. All you need is a 5–10-minute break prior to starting your day, to help get you in a better state of mind.

#3 Have to Exercise

Exercising is a great way to deal with the stress having to move will bring on. Whether you lift weights, run a mile, or simply walk on the treadmill, exercise is good for your heart, and your metabolism and it also releases endorphins which will help you feel better. Try and get into a routine and exercise regularly and you will notice a huge difference in how you feel on a daily basis.

#4 Reading is Relaxing

Reading can also be very therapeutic depending on what kind of book you read. Getting lost in a book takes your mind off the stress of the day and will help you relax. Whether it is a novel, the bible, or just an online article, reading 15-30 minutes a day is a great stress reliever.

#5 Ask for help

A lot of stress is caused because we try and tackle too much on our own. One way to immediately ease the stress you are feeling is to enlist family and friends in the moving process. You can even recruit minimum wage individuals to help you with the packing, moving boxes, or even hire a babysitter. Never feel embarrassed to ask for help when you need it most. Hopefully, you will have several people that would be willing to assist you with your upcoming move. Many times, all you have to do is ask.

#6 Get Plenty of Rest

When you are in the middle of a move, time is never on your side. There are only a limited number of hours in a day you can be productive. With that said, you need to get plenty of rest and a good night’s sleep when you can. Set a schedule for yourself when packing, organizing, or delegating tasks, so you have a hard stopping time. This way you will give yourself enough time to relax and more importantly, enough time to sleep. It is impossible to handle too many days of stress when moving, with little or no sleep.

#7 Eating Right

Proper eating can be a difficult task when you are in the process of moving. The last thing anyone wants to do is cook, especially when your kitchen utensils are packed away. Try and keep fresh fruit, and cut vegetables around for you and your helpers. Pre-cooked rotisserie chickens and pre-cut salads are a great way to feed the masses. There are many options, but try and stick to foods that are low in saturated fats and sugar.

#8 Create Meaningful Lists

Moving is a chaotic task and it can be hard to remember everything you will need to accomplish. To help get you organized and keep you on task, create a list of everything you need to do with reasonable timelines as to when they need to be accomplished. This will help you prioritize your tasks.

#9 Try and Get Out of The House

Get fresh air whenever you can. The last thing a mover wants to do is stay indoors all the time. Set aside 10 minutes every hour to go for a walk or just to get outside and breathe fresh air. There are many options of outside activities you can enjoy for a few minutes, so don’t stay cooped up because you are moving.

#10 Treat Yourself to Something Special

Whether it is a walk in the park, taking a ride in the car, or shopping for something you want, make and take time for yourself.
