When you move enough, you start to notice that there’s a pattern to the process. Remember those initial days of excitement? You’re gathering the supplies you have to pack, and you start to get a bit more excited as the pile of moving boxes stacks higher. 

But soon enough, you’re jostled into the reality of the situation. Because of family members that keep opening up packed boxes, the weight of the objects you underestimated, coupled with the stress of finding a new home – you might as well cry for help. 

Finally, it’s moving day. A long, tiring, sweaty day. Your job, pets, and kids still continue to demand your attention. If this wasn’t enough stress – your internet provider tells you that they won’t be able to provide you services for another week. 

Moving in Long Island, or anywhere in the world, can be a stressful experience. Knowing what to expect can help you through the process. Here are four tips to make the process easy on your nerves. 

  1. Stress Is a Part of the Process

Even though moving has consistently ranked as the top stressors in life – you need to go easy on yourself. Overcoming the moving fatigue starts with acceptance. Think about the various times you accepted stress as a part of the schtick and powered through? Stress is our response to a truly demanding circumstance – not the end of the world. 

In fact, it can be good for you!   

  1. Make Sure You Have a Lot of Time

Timing is key.

The whole process of moving revolves around planning. One of your biggest assets during your move in Long Island will be the time you have. Not having enough of it is what leads to stress. Even though it might not be possible to make the experience stress free, you can make it easier by giving yourself enough time. Make sure you give yourself enough time for the last-minute steps, like cleaning the place you’re leaving. 

Leaving everything to the last minute will only make you feel frantic.

  1. Start With the Small Bits

It’s common to feel paralyzed from the stress and not know where to start. This is where the little things can help. Get something done by either packing the drawers or try putting your books into a box. Making small progress keeps you sane, and you worry less about how you’ll stay on your schedule.
