The holiday season can be a joyful time of year but also can be quite stressful as well. Moving and the holidays are both stressful events and once combined can increase your level of stress to the max! However, sometimes moving during the holidays are necessary and can be an easier move for some, especially in the New England area. This is because one can move during the holidays where the streets won’t be as busy and people can take time out of work or school much easier. If you are planning a residential move on the holidays here are some tips to take to reduce your stress during this hectic but exciting time!
- Hire a dependable and certified moving company like MacDonald Movers, whether you have a long-distance or a local move, try to hire movers early as possible. Also by hiring residential movers, you can avoid moving scams and only have professionals taking care of your personal belongings.
- Put extra thought into packing since it will be busy during the holiday season with the move so it might be in your best interest to unpack only necessary household items in your home until the holidays pass. Packing and labelling your items will help separate the items you want during the holidays to the ones you won’t need until after the holidays. For example, keep holiday decorations, gift wrapping materials, and even gifts separated from your household belongings so you won’t have to worry about digging through all of your packed stuff.
- Don’t let a move damper your holiday spirits! Play some holiday music during your ride to your new home and keep a festive atmosphere even during this hectic time.
- If you have young children, make sure to pack a box full of their coloring books, puzzles, and other activities to keep them occupied and is easily reachable. Don’t forget to remind them that Santa will be able to find them at their new home, just in case they get worried.
- After your journey to your new home and the chaos of the move is over, take time for yourself to relax. Watch a holiday movie, bake cookies, or simply take a hot bath to ease your mind & body and enjoy the holidays at your new place!
