Moving is stressful to begin with, as are the holidays from time to time. Put these two together, and it can be a rough transition. However, sometimes, holiday time is the only time for moving for reasons such as time off work, about to start a new job and so on. With that being said, ease your stress with these few tips!
Tips for moving during the holidays:
- Go to family/friends house for holidays – Do not try to plan a big holiday dinner at your new home (or old home covered in boxes). This is added and not needed stress. Find a friend or family members home to go to, or if really desperate, take the family out to celebrate! No shame in a not home cooked holiday dinner.
- If in another (not close location), plan holiday accordingly with driving – If the driving is a long haul, find a friend or family member along the way willing to host! That way, you get to stop and take a rest and spend the holiday’s with family. Again, if not possible, stop somewhere new and fun with the family and celebrate there.
- Stay organized – Organization is key for low stress both during holidays and not during the holidays. Make lists, keep track of items, read up on tips like these and be prepared for anything!
- Make it fun! – Whatever you do, make the move and the holiday fun! Stress is no good for anyone, but especially during the festive season. Find ways to relax and have a good time. This is the best tip we can give!
