We get it, you are already a busy person. You are working crazy hours at your job, you have to help with the kid’s homework and get them to their after-school activities. And now you must move. You have to contact your local moving company, you need to plan your move and you must pack everything in your house. While this all sounds stressful, you can actually find ways to enjoy the process of moving to a new home.
Moving can be stressful so it is important to have fun as you get ready to relocate to a new home. If you don’t take time to enjoy the process and the time you have in your current home, you’ll carry that stress all the way through the moving process.
Here are a few ways you could have fun as you get ready to move to your new home.
Throw a party before moving
Most people like a good party and this is a great way to have some fun with family and friends as you get ready for your journey. This is especially important if you are moving to another state. This is a great way to forge lasting memories as you move out of your home and take a break from the day-to-day activities of getting ready for a move. And who knows? Maybe you could get rid of a few unwanted items in the process.
Take a road trip to your new community
Who doesn’t like a good road trip or a mini-vacation? You can create some excitement around your move by taking a couple of days to visit your new city or town. If you have kids, this is especially important to get them comfortable with relocating. Pack the car up, hit a few restaurants, and find other recreational activities close to your new home.
Purging items can be fun… really…
We always recommend our moving clients purge whatever items they can from their existing home. This can lower your stress and it can save you money on your move because you’ll be moving fewer items. You should go around your home and see what items you can part with. How can this be fun? You can have a yard sale and invite the community. Or you could connect with a local charity and donate items such as furniture to help others.
Get excited about your new home
Your new home can be a new canvas for your family. You have a fresh start where you can put furniture and other items wherever you want moved. You’ll have a new backyard which you can make your own. And you can meet new friends. If you find these types of activities exciting, then moving to a new home will actually be fun.
