Moving? Check Out The 4 Ps Of Success

Moving can be a stressful situation. There are endless to-do lists, tears, tantrums and moments where you feel like you should just stay where you are to avoid all the stress. If these behaviors sound familiar, then perhaps you didn’t have the four Ps up your sleeve. Not to be confused with marketing - these four Ps could actually help make moving a far simpler process that has you sailing into your new home with a smile.

Read on and learn the secrets to stress-free moving.

Preparation
“By failing to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.” These are wise words from Founding Father Benjamin Franklin. While he may not have been talking about moving to a new home here, it’s certainly a phrase that fits the bill. It’s good to start your moving preparations as far in advance as you can. Work backwards from moving day to establish when all of the essentials need to be done, such as booking the movers, getting the house cleaned and when unwanted items need to go. Make lists, set up a schedule and stay on task. You’ll be glad you started planning well in advance by the time the big day arrives.

Being prepared will save you a lot of headaches, including finding ways to avoid losing money when moving. Get yourself a notepad and start writing down everything that needs to be done ahead of moving day.

Packing
Packing (and the subsequent unpacking) is one of the least favored parts of moving to a new home. If you plan on doing everything yourself, make sure that you have enough packing materials to see you through. Alternatively, hiring a company to pack and move your things can save you a lot of time and stress. A professional moving company like Jersey Shore Moving Storage can take the burden of packing off your shoulders so that you can focus on getting your new home ready.
Pitching In
Even if you are the self-elected project manager of your move, it will go a lot smoother if all of the family are involved. Even small children can pack up their toys and games, helping to make things less stressful for you. Assign everyone their own task and give them ownership of it, checking in now and then to make sure it’s all in hand. You’re all in this together, so you all need to do your fair share.
Positivity
It doesn’t do any good to fear the worst, so maintaining a positive outlook throughout your move will instantly make things cheerier and less stressful. If something isn’t going to plan, laugh about it. Find ways to stay positive during a move that will help keep you and your family going, even when it’s getting too much. Whenever the moving process gets you down, think of the exciting things that are to come instead. Play cheerful music and plan breaks to have a snack or play a quick game.

Moving doesn’t have to be the nightmare that you envisage it to be. Make sure you’ve got your four Ps covered, and you’ll be well-prepared to start the next exciting chapter of your life. Remember that the pain is temporary, and you’ll forget all about the trauma once you’re settled in your lovely new home.
