Moving is one of the most stressful things you can go through. I know – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve moved! Having lived in Birmingham, England before coming to Canada and growing up in London, Hamilton, Chatham, Waterloo, going to school back in Hamilton and Waterloo, and, oh yeah, a year back in England, and then working Toronto, Tokyo and Montreal, believe me I get it.
I have learned that preparation is key to reducing stress levels. Sometimes though, even with the best laid plans, things come up and you’ll have to react on the fly, but nothing beats having a plan to bring you some peace of mind during the process.
Here is a segment with Steven Sabados of The Steven and Chris Show with helpful tips on the topic of preparing for a move. You’ll want to scroll to the 28:15 mark for the segment on Packing for a Move. That was my very first time on TV!
If you’re moving, good luck with your transition. If you know someone who is, please feel free to share this post.
