Ok, so I am starting to move, in fact I should be packing right now. It is REALLY stressful. Seriously. Especially with finals coming up soon. So, I have no idea how I am supposed to pack. Should I just throw things into boxes in certain categories? Move from one thing to the next? And how can I help relieve a little bit of the moving stress. PLEASE HELP ME!!
Moving is stressful…been there too many times myself.
For myself, the better organized I am, the easier the move. I pack each room in its own boxes, clearly labeled so that when I get to my new place, the boxes can be put where they belong. I also mark each of the boxes with a brief list of contents. Keeping the most important items packed separately helps as well…so that you can get to your necessities with minimal effort. [Since you are approaching finals, it's really important to make sure you can get to the things you need without having to unpack every box. Keep all school related items together.]
Plan ahead to make sure you can take care of yourself as you move….get plenty of rest, make sure you drink enough water, and have some healthy, easy to fix food items available.
And breathe! If you feel the stress taking hold, relax and take several deep, even breaths. Don’t let the stress take over.
