Moving house is up there with the most stressful lifetime events. At a time when there is a crisis in mental health not just in the UK but all around the world, there has never been a more important time to protect your mental health.

If you are about to embark on a house move there are lots of things that you can do to keep your stress levels at bay.

Being organised is the first thing to do before anything else. Prepare as much as you can as soon as you can – start packing early, and also contact people like local removals companies such as these removal companies Cheltenham  to make sure that you have as much prepared as possible for moving day.

Make sure that you allow plenty of time to get things done and work out a realistic timeline to do things in that doesn’t mean you are going to be rushing around or putting additional stress on to yourself.

On the day itself, it is a good idea to have a box that you keep aside – this means having drinks like tea and coffee as well as milk, as well as things for children such as favourite blankets or teddies to comfort them in the new home before you have unpacked.

People may well be able to help you, just ask! Whether you need the kids and pets taken away from the busy moving process or you want some help unpacking at the new house, ask friends and family to lend a hand and it will mean the day is much less stressful.
