Video: Take The Stress Out Of MovingWe know moving can be stressful, and so do our friends at The Guild of Property Professionals. That's why they've put together this useful video to help take some of the stress away. You have plenty of time between getting your sale agreed to preparing for your first night in your new home, so use it wisely
Pack by room and decide when and how you will organise your things. Organise your belongings into boxes and plan how they will fit in the moving van.
Start packing as soon as you can. Choose non-essential items first, then pack your essentials like furniture and kitchenware on the week of the move.
Take your time
Feeling rushed will make your stress levels skyrocket, so being slow and methodical is the best way to combat moving worry.
Have a backup plan
When you’re planning your move, take a small amount of time to think about the things that could go wrong and write them down, then think of ways to overcome these problems.
Ask for help from your friends and family to take the pressure off on moving day.
Take care of yourself
A healthy diet and plenty of exercise can help take the edge off your moving stress. Taking care of yourself also means that you deserve a treat every now and then, so consider a takeaway on your first night in the new home to reward yourself for all the hard work!
