A mega list of things to accomplish in a limited amount of time. Lots of money spent. Piles of boxes and supplies. Heavy lifting and hauling. Overwhelming stress. There’s no end to the negative things involved in a home move. Sure, it can be easy to focus on all of the negative aspects of an upcoming move. But why stress yourself out when you could focus on the positive things instead? Doing so will keep your stress level lower and allow you to feel the power of great emotions like excitement, happiness and joy. To keep the negativity at bay during your upcoming move, check out the top five reasons why moving is awesome!
You get to purge unwanted belongings. Have you ever cleaned out a junk drawer or closet? If so, chances are you felt pretty great afterwards – perhaps lighter, cleaner and accomplished. Being able to sort through all of your belongings before a move is one of the most awesome things about relocating to a new home. Of course, it probably seems incredibly overwhelming and time-consuming. But once you get started on the task at hand, you’ll quickly learn that it’s not so bad. The more things you find to throw away, donate or sell, the more you’ll wonder why you dreaded the task so much to begin with. Plus, did we mention that the less items you have to move, the less costly your relocation will be? If more money in your pocket doesn’t make you want to organize and purge some of your belongings, we don’t know what will!
You’ll remember how strong and capable you are. As you know, life is full of roadblocks. There will be times where stress feels overwhelming or when you are weighed down by worry, self-doubt and inadequacy. But think about some of the roadblocks you have dealt with. Haven’t you always made it through them? Moving will definitely be one of the most stressful and difficult times in your life. However, being able to say you made it through a hard situation will make you remember just how strong and capable you are – two mighty empowering feelings.
You’ll gain a new perspective. Before you decided to move to a new home, did you feel bored or restless? Maybe like you were in a rut with each day feeling exactly the same? This can sometimes mean you have been in the same place for too long – a problem that can definitely cause you to become pretty cynical about life. After you move, though, all of the restlessness and boredom you once felt will vanish. Your new surroundings will spark something in you, and you’ll gain a new perspective on life. You may want to seize or explore new opportunities or make new friends – both things that will make life exciting again.
You’ll learn a lot. As we previously mentioned, one of the awesome things that happen when you move is that you gain a new perspective on life. Along with this newly gained perspective, you also learn a lot – the history of your new city or state, cool places to go around town, etc. But another thing about moving is that you learn a lot about yourself. A move – especially one that took you to an entirely new state (or even part of the globe) will teach you a huge amount about your likes and dislikes. You’ll discover what kind of climate you prefer to live in, whether a house or an apartment best fits your lifestyle, or if you are a city or suburbs type of person. The point is that by learning more about yourself after you move, the more likely you are to eventually move to a home that falls into the “perfect” category.
You’ll be able to decorate. Our last reason for why moving is awesome is because once you move in, you get to decorate your new home. Deciding on the perfect paint color, picking furniture and artwork that is just right, landscaping the yard you’ve always dreamed of… all of these things make getting through even the toughest parts of moving totally worth it!
