If your New Year’s Resolution for 2021 is to make a fresh start and move from one home to another, now is a great time to do it. Hiring professional movers is the first step to ensuring your goals will be met with success. Everyone makes common resolutions in January, from losing weight to paying down debt to getting fit.
You can still do all that, but you can also incorporate some resolutions into the process of moving. Here are some good places to start.
1. Stress Less
After the year everyone had last year, we all deserve less stress going into 2021. Do what you can to reduce stress on yourself during this move. The best way to do that is to hire movers to handle the logistics and heavy lifting, while you concentrate on more important things. When you stress less, you’re happier. When you’re happier, everyone around you is too. You can help yourself further by starting to plan well ahead of time so you don’t rush at the last minute. Nothing spells stress like cramming a bunch of tasks into a week’s time.
2. Recycle More
Making a life change often starts with yourself and your impact on the world around you. Moving is the perfect time to make way for what’s truly important in life. Get rid of material things that no longer serve you, but instead of tossing them in the trash or a dumpster, consider recycling any item you can. Whether you put it directly into a recycling bin or bring it to a charity so someone else can enjoy it, vowing to recycle more benefits all involved.
And instead of buying all new stuff at your new place, check out antique shops or thrift stores to buy secondhand. You’ll save money and save the planet at the same time.
3. Get Started Early
If you’ve always been one to procrastinate, resolve to start being on time, planning ahead and being prepared. Start with the moving tasks. From address changes and switching banks to researching new doctors and calling the utility companies, start the process early to ensure a seamless relocation. You don’t want to get to the new home only to find the water isn’t running yet or you have no cable TV. And you don’t want to wait till someone gets sick to research a new physician.
4. Take Your Time
If your life has been overscheduled and overstressed, make a promise to slow down this year. You can start with the post-move packing process. There’s no rule that says you have to have every box unpacked in the first few days. Take your time, go room by room, and don’t rush. This will give you more time for yourself, your kids and your family.
