How to Get Motivated to Move

Rating :
  based on 1 visitor(s)    
Moving can be a stressful process. So, you need to get past the worry and make the process as enjoyable as possible, especially if you have a family. The best way to do this is to motivate yourself and your family to move, taking the following steps to prepare everyone for moving day.

Stay organized

If you stay on top of your responsibilities in the months leading up to the move, then the hard part will already be over by the time moving day rolls around. When you have less to worry about, you'll be able to enjoy the excitement of the moving process rather than dwell on the stress caused by it. Be sure you neatly pack all of your belongings into boxes and organize them so you remember what contents are in each box. Labeling each box's contents and room is important for you, as well as any professional movers you may have hired.

Speaking of which, if you're hiring a moving company, make sure you've arranged the service with enough lead time before the move. It eases the stress of the moving process when you've booked movers you trust for a price with which your family is comfortable. You should get moving quotes from several companies before deciding to hire one.

Think of potential moving benefits.

Don't focus on the fears and concerns you may have about moving. Instead, focus on the potential benefits of moving and how you and your family can flourish in a new environment. Below are some examples of the various benefits you can experience after a move:
  • A fresh start
  • Exploring the culture of a new area
  • Becoming part of a new community
  • Meeting new friends and neighbours
  • Advancing your career or expanding your opportunities

Get your family and friends excited

Positivity is contagious. By focusing on the benefits of your move, your family will be just as positive about it. Of course, this may take time. Your children may be sad about leaving friends, but with enough patience and positive reinforcement, they will come to accept and maybe even embrace the move.

If you are not moving with your family, you can still get them to embrace the change. Encourage family members and friends to come visit once you're all settled in, and you can even recruit some of them to help you stay organized during the planning stage of your move. Packing as a family or group will facilitate the process and make moving a lot smoother for you.

Stay positive

Again, positivity is contagious. So, if you get everybody close to you excited about your move and you start to have doubts, their positive attitudes should convince you that it is a good thing. Maintain this outlook throughout the moving process and especially as you're settling into your new home.

Moving is exciting. So, why treat it like a chore? Why dread moving day when you can prepare for it and knock it out of the park? Sure, moving can get stressful and adjusting to a new environment can be terrifying, but people do the most amazing things when they venture outside of their comfort zones. Embrace it.
