Tips & Ideas To Relax
A move happens every day on Long Island. This means that many people are trying to deal with the stress of moving. Believe it or not, moving is considered in the top three life experiences that cause stress.
It isn’t hard to believe many people dread moving. However, the key to making your Long Island move a bit easier is learning to relax before your move, during, and after.
Ideas For Relaxing Before Your Long Island Move
Relaxing before a move may be something that you question. After all, how can you relax when you know everything you need to do to get ready for your move. You are deciding what goes and what is donated, the professional mover you will hire, and debating on whether to go with professional packing services, as well as the emotions that come with moving.
So, how can you relax before your Long Island move? Here are a few suggestions:
- Take the time to enjoy some of the local spots that you may miss once you move.
- Go ahead and make some to-do lists; while this may not be super relaxing, doing so can make your life a bit easier.
- Enjoy some meditation when the stress of a move is getting to you.
Above all, be sure to remind yourself why this move will be great for you. Focusing on the end results will make a move easier to process.
Relaxing During Your Move
It may seem crazy to relax during the move, but it is possible! How can you do this? Here are some ideas:
- Be sure to hire professional packers. You cannot imagine how much stress this can relieve when you know you have pros that can pack your items and allow you to focus on something else.
- Have a set time for packing, and use an hour or so each night to decompress. Read a favorite book, enjoy a long hot bath or something similar that is going to help you relax from the stress of the day.
- Start planning how you will decorate your new home. This can often be a stressful experience, but many people find this makes them more focused on moving, so they enjoy decorating a new home.
After A Move: Finding Relaxation
After the movers have everything placed into your new home, and the items are unpacked, it is time to toast yourself for all that you have been through! Take the time to get to know your new home and your new Long Island area. Consider doing some of these things:
- Get a coffee at the local coffee house.
- Talk a walk around your neighborhood.
- Introduce yourself to your neighbors.
- Connect with others in your area via social media.
Basically, you want to immerse yourself into your new Long Island area and take some “me” time!
