how to reduce worry from moving house

If you’ve ever had to move house, you know how stressful it can be. From packing to unpacking to establishing a routine, moving house can take a lot of effort and time. Yes, you’re excited to be able to call your new house your home finally, but it’s also a lot to take in at once.

If you’re moving for the first time, you may be worried about getting everything done on time and how to prevent yourself from becoming too stressed. This article will help you tackle the moving house process and stay calm while you do it.

Ask Family and Friends to Help

Ask loved ones if they can be on hand to help you to move or just to pack up your home to help you to get ready to move. The more hands you have helping you out, the lighter your load will be and the less stressful it will be too.

Start Planning Early

It’s best to start planning your move as soon as you know you want to move house. This way, you’ll be more prepared for what’s ahead. The sooner you get started, the easier your move will be. You should start by doing an inventory of all your stuff. Make a thorough pack-out list, and keep a record of every item you own. Next, you should start thinking about how you want to move your belongings. Decide where you’ll be moving to and how you’ll get there. Are you moving yourself, or are you booking a household moving service? Finally, start making a list of everything you own. Start by going through your house and making a list of the furniture, ornaments, books, pots, pans, etc. Once you have a complete inventory of all your belongings, you can start planning how to move them.

Be Kind To Yourself

You’re probably feeling a little overwhelmed by the idea of moving house. It’s important to remember that this is a significant change, even if it’s a big change to your home. Everyone experiences moving differently, and it’s important to remember that you’re doing it for yourself. There are a few ways you can make your move easier. First, try to stay calm and patient. It’s important not to rush through unpacking but rather take your time. You can also try to get into a routine for unpacking so you don’t feel so overwhelmed.

Keep your Essentials to Hand

For safety reasons, it’s good to keep your emergency essentials close by when you’re moving house. This includes things like your phone and car keys. You may also want to keep your passport, cash, and documents close. If you have a pet, it will be helpful to keep their leads and travel crates nearby. If you have young children, you might want to keep their favorite toys close by. If you have a lot of furniture, you should either hire help to move it or make sure it’s all secure before you move.


Moving house can be a stressful experience for anyone, but the process can be particularly challenging for first-time movers. A lot of the mental preparation of moving lies in being organized and knowing what to expect. With some organization and planning, you can make the whole process smoother and more manageable.

acreage renovation: a boy’s room / nursery

This room. Oh, this room. It has gone from a girl’s room, to a shared boy and girl’s room, to just a boy’s room, and finally, to a boy and new baby’s room.

I had initially planned on sharing the photos of how we sweetly made over Wilder’s room to incorporate a nursery for Beau prior to giving birth to her, but life became busy and I never posted them in time! That is why her name banner that hangs above her crib is flipped around- we wanted to keep her moniker a surprise until she was officially here.

Now that she is, the banner is facing the correct way, we have gotten around to hanging a mirror above the dresser, have added a kitchen set, changed the curtains, and have switched out the jute rug with a much softer off-white one.

Alas, these were the pictures taken over 3 months ago of our updated boy’s room/nursery at the time.
