New Year’s Resolutions for Long-Distance Moves

Thinking about setting some New Year’s resolutions?  Instead of setting unattainable and usually quite forgettable ones, why not change things up and set some resolutions that will help you with your upcoming long-distance move?  As your premier Castelgar movers, we would like to share the following New Year’s resolutions that will help you with your next long-distance move.

Manage Your Time

A New Year’s resolution around time management is a great goal, regardless of whether you are moving long-distances or not.  By setting a time management resolution, you will be able to get more done in a day, week or even month and this includes packing, sorting and other time-consuming portions all synonymous with moving.

Here’s the Deal:

Use a visual, such as a calendar or even your smart phone to help you get the most out of this resolution. A visual will help you plan your day and week as well as make any minor changes or adjustments so that you can meet each goal and reschedule to fit your busy life.

Manage Your stress

A healthy you starts with stress management.  A long-distance move is one of the most stressful jobs that you will encounter this year, so be sure to manage it by doing the following:

  • A regular yoga or exercise routine.
  • Scheduled time with family and friends.
  • Proper time management strategies that include time created to pack, box, sort and other moving related items.
  • A positive attitude and an outlook that the move is not a chore or a job but rather an opportunity.
  • Plenty of sleep.

Be Charitable

You don’t only have to be in the giving spirit around the holidays.  Instead, use your long-distance move as an opportunity to sort through all your belongings and donate the items that you no longer use or will no longer be needing.  A long-distance move is a great opportunity for you to donate and be charitable to your community and the bonus for you is less to pack, move and unpack.  Donating is a win, win situation.

Go Exploring

After the last box has been moved from the truck to your new home, put the unpacking portion of the move on hold and get out and explore your new surroundings.  Spend some time to acclimatize to your new town and neighbourhood.  You never know who you may meet or what new exciting places you will discover, so get out and explore.

These simple New Year’s resolutions will help you prepare for and manage your next long-distance move.  If you would like more information on any of these resolutions or are interested in other ways to help you with your upcoming move, please contact us today.  Our professional and friendly staff would love to be a part of your next long-distance move and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Happy New Year from Kootenai Moving.
