Kim Kardashian may have a Glam Squad, however the new buzz is for a Stress-Free Squad. Your Stress-Free Squad are the people and professionals you trust to help you through stressful times. And moving house is one of the most stressful activities for many people. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
No matter what precautions you take, it’s important to keep in mind that there will be some level of stress when you move. When you’re navigating such a big move, it’s impossible that there won’t be at least a little!
However, there are things you can do to minimise those stress levels. One such way is to organise a stress-free squad. Many hands make light work. If you have trusted professionals, friends and family, and the best version of yourself on board, then you’ll find it easier to feel under control during your move.
Below, we take a look at a few essential humans you’ll need.
Stress-Free Squad: Trusted Estate Agent
It is technically possible to complete all the paperwork yourself, since it’s not as if you need a special license to do it. However, it’s not advisable, unless you like complex challenges and want to put your stress levels to the test.
So you’ll want to work with a trusted real estate agent. It’s important to keep in mind that not all estate agents are created equal. Some will be there for you every step of the way; others will be hard to pin down just when you need them the most.
Make sure you’re doing your research before agreeing to work with an estate agent, and don’t be afraid to pull the plug if they fail to live up to their end of the bargain.
Stress-Free Squad: Professional Movers
It’s possible to feel pretty excited about your move…and then it comes to the actual move, and you realise that, oh, this is going to be much more difficult than you anticipated.
Many people underestimate how much effort is required to move a house load of possessions from one property to another, and this is especially true if it’s your first time moving. Instead of putting yourself through that hardship, look at hiring movers to do the job for you.
They’ll have the expertise needed to handle the complex job, and ensure all your belongings get there safely.
Stress-Free Squad: Friends and Family
It’s always good to have friends and family to call upon when you’re going through a stressful period, even if it is something positive, such as moving home.
If you have children, your extended family can look after them during the most intense hours of the move, your friends can help get everything ready and prepare meals, and so on. It’s not just about making your job easier: it’s about having fun.
Laughter is one thing that’s great at keeping stress at bay, and if there’s one thing that friends are for, it’s a joke or two.
Stress-Free Squad: The Best You
Finally, make sure you’re bringing your best self to the move! In the run-up to the big day, spend some time getting yourself into a good position, by treating yourself to something enjoyable, taking a couple of days off work, and eating well.
You’ll find it easier to handle the move if you’re starting from a happy and excited position.
