Why Moving Really Sucks (And How To Make It Suck Less)

Aug 5

Moving is one of life's most stressful events. We are constantly reminded of this fact by our moving company. Nobody expects to be able to get through a move without some stress, significant costs, and perhaps even tears. Why is it so difficult to move? Moving was a natural part of nomadic life for our ancestors. They were used to moving frequently. Why is it so difficult for us?

It is intimidating to think about the possibility of change, whether it be for good or bad.

Although moving is a significant change, it also involves a lot more small changes, such as changing your route to work or arranging furniture to fit in a new room. Many people don't fear change and find it exciting. If you are attached to your home, you will likely feel the stress of having to adjust to a new routine. Even if you were fortunate enough to make the move, you will likely feel the pain of change.

What is your child's first traumatizing experience?

For our children, the pain of leaving behind everyone and everything is more difficult. It can be very difficult for children to move away from their homes. They may have to make new friends or establish new relationships if they are required to move to another school. The home of a child is their primary source of comfort and safety. They must leave their safe place if they move away.

Time or money? It will cost you

Moving costs money, whether you hire a moving company for packing and shipping, or you do it yourself. The little things that add up to the overall cost of moving, including the house itself and the company you hire, can be quite costly.

  • Materials for packing
  • Mail forwarding
  • Security Deposits, First and Last Month's Rent
  • Internet and cable installations

Moving is expensive and takes up a lot of your time.

  • Labeling and packing boxes
  • Sorting, donating, and selling unwanted items
  • Change your address to your credit card companies
  • Find new schools

Moving is a financial and time commitment. It's not as enjoyable as sitting at the doctor's desk all day. Even if you hire outside help to move, it's not easy.

How can we make moving less stressful?

We've established why moving is a pain. Is there any way to make the experience a little more pleasant or bearable? It's crucial to protect your children from the stress of moving. Here are some tips to help you and your family cope with the stress of a move.

  • A moving company is a good choice. A moving company is more than just a truck with a few people. They can also help you pack boxes and coordinate the transportation logistics.
  • Make a plan. Don’t wait to pack. Stress levels will rise if you feel stressed if you rush.
  • Get your kids involved. Don't wait until the last minute to tell your children the news. This will only backfire. Instead, let them be involved in the process. Make it positive. Show them the house and let them choose their wallpaper. Also, tell them about the wonderful things in their new neighborhood.
  • Don’t try to do it all before your move. Don't wait until after the move. You can either store your items in a friend's garage or, worst case scenario, take the items you are selling with you. Garage sales are a great way for you to meet new neighbors.
  • Now, take a break. Congratulations! You have successfully packed your entire collection of Blu-ray and hard drives. You deserve a small pat on the back or at least a moment of celebration for this small win. Rome was not built in one day.
