Moving to a new home is a big decision – one that can positively or negatively affect your emotions. In fact, you might experience some – or all – of the below.
1. Excitement – It’s normal to feel excited when you’re in the process of moving. The excitement can come from a number of factors, such as finally being able to move out of a home or city that doesn’t make you happy. You can also feel excited when you’ve finally arrived at your new home. It’s as if you just pressed the reset button and are about to start a new life. This means exploring a different place as well as meeting new people and making new friends. Embrace this feeling, and only worry about what the future holds.
2. Confusion – During the initial phases, you might feel confused about the lack of order or even the procedures to follow. You might not know how many movers you need or even what should be packed first. To avoid stress, we recommend that you practice proper time management as well as follow a weekly timeline so you’ll have a better grasp of the situation.
3. Sadness – It’s never easy to leave your old friends and family whom you’ve known for years. The thought of losing touch with your loved ones can especially be saddening. You can still squeeze in a bit of fun quality time with your friends and family into your moving timeline to end things on a happy note. And, don’t forget to keep in touch with them once you’ve moved out.
4. Fear – This feeling happens often during the first move, and it is indeed one of our primary emotions so it’s not surprising when you feel at least some semblance of fear during the moving process. In fact, you’ll probably go through minor tropophobia, which is the fear of moving and making changes. So, if you’re having second thoughts about your move when you shouldn’t, then it’s probably just the phobia. When this happens, you just need to calm yourself and think rationally of how you’re moving house as well as why you’re doing it.
