How to Avoid Stress When Moving Home
Moving home is one of the most stressful experiences that a person can endure. With a wealth of factors to consider and organise, not to mention effectively co-ordinating the removal and liaising with estate agents, the experience is one that can leave some of us harassed. Here are some basic and helpful tips that if followed will reduce the stress of moving home.
When we sleep our mind, body and spirit recharges. Whether you’re moving home or not, it’s essential to have a restful nights’ sleep. Few of us realise that by jeopardising the amount of sleep we have, we are jeopardising our health. Poor sleep leads to poor immunity and cognitive function. When in the process of moving home, make sure that you get sufficient sleep.
Reduce Stress with Exercise
Exercise is one of the best ways to reduce stress. A thirty minute brisk walk or jog will work wonders for your mind, body and spirit. Exercising releases endorphins. When you’re experiencing a prolonged period of stress, such as the process of moving home, exercising can reduce stress therefore allowing you to think clearer and function better.
When you and your family have moved into a new home, it’s a great opportunity to make lifestyle changes for the better, which will allow you to refresh your mind, body and spirit. Subtle changes like eating habits, any travel you routinely undertake, and daily routine in general made before, whilst and after you move will enhance your mood and make the transition between properties all the more easy.
Take a Holiday
Taking a holiday immediately prior to, or immediately after you move home allows everyone to relax and forget the stress of moving. Even a short weekend away can energise everyone. Why not use the time away from work to take a short city break or relax by the sea. You’ll surely notice a difference in your mindset when moving.
These four tips may seem simple, but they’ll surely enhance the moving experience for the better.
What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
