Have A Stressful Move?
No one enjoys moving. Moving is stressful, chaotic and exhausting. One way to take a large part of the stress off your shoulders is to hire a professional Jacksonville moving company to do the heaving lifting. If you plan on moving on your own without the help of professional movers, then you will definitely want to find ways to de-stress during and after your move. Below are 10 things you can do to help decrease your stress.
Yoga is a good way to calm your mind and body. Whether you do Yoga from your home or a local gym, make some time for yourself to stretch and breath. Even if you give yourself 10-15, it can really transform the way you feel and give you a positive state of mind. Helping you better deal with your upcoming move.
Like all of the ideas listed in this blog, meditation will help you take time for yourself. Meditation is a good way to block out the rest of the world and really just focus on nothing. Find a quiet place in your home, close your eyes, focus on your breathing and nothing else. This simple technique can help decrease anxiety and stress. All you need is 5-10 minutes prior to starting your day to help put you in a better state of mind.
Exercising is a great way to deal with stress. Whether you lift weight, walk on the treadmill or are a cross fit junkie, exercise is good for your heart, speeds up your metabolism and it also releases endorphins which help you feel better. Try and get into a routine and you will notice a huge difference in how you feel.
Reading can be very therapeutic. Getting lost in a book takes your mind off the stresses of the day. Whether it is a good novel or the bible 15-30 minutes of reading is a great stress reliever.
#5 Get help
Many of us stress because we try and tackle everything on our own. One way to immediately ease some stress is to enlist family and friends to assist with the moving process. You can recruit individuals to help you with packing, moving boxes or even babysitting. Never feel embarrassed to ask for help. You have several people that would be willing to assist you with your upcoming move, all you need to do is ask.
Time is never on our side. There are only so many hours in a day. With that said you still need to rest and get a good night’s sleep. Set a schedule for yourself when packing so you have a hard stop time. This way you give yourself enough time to relax and even more important, enough time to sleep. It is very difficult to handle the upcoming days stresses with little to no sleep.
#7 Eat Right
This can be a difficult task when you are in the process of moving. The last thing you want to do is cook, especially when your pots and pans are packed in boxes. Keep fresh fruit, and vegetables on hand. You can even go to the grocery store and get a rotisserie chicken and pre-cut salad. There are many options, just try and stick to foods that are low in fats and sugars.
#8 Create Lists
Moving is chaotic and it can be hard to remember everything you need to do. To help you organize your move and keep you on task, create a list of everything you need to do with timelines as to when they need to be accomplished. This will also help you prioritize your tasks from most to least importance.
#9 Get Out of The House
Get some fresh air. The last thing you want to do is stay indoors all the time because you are packing. Set aside 15 minutes to go walk, find a nature trail, visit a local park, take a walk on the beach. There are many options just don’t stay cooped up because you are moving.
#10 Treat Yourself
Whether the way to treat yourself is by eating ice cream, getting dinner out or shopping, take time for you.
