Moving is a stressful time in any person’s life. If this is the first time that you’re moving into your own place, you are probably feeling both excitement and anxiety.
If you’re planning on moving to Chicago, you might be worried about a number of things. Living in a big city means spending more time behind the wheel, commuting to work every day, wasting a couple of hours on a bus, sitting in line more for pretty much everything, and experiencing more stress than ever. Changes in our lives trigger disruptions that cause uncertainty. Uncertainty is always associated with stress and anxiety. Not being able to anticipate what is going to happen next is both thrilling and nerve-racking. Everything starting with your morning routine, your friends and job will change. And while you may not be able to predict every hiccup that is going to happen, you can at least make sure to hire the best movers possible.
The Psychological Impact Of Moving House
Psychologists recommend you take as much time as you need to say goodbye to your old home. This includes the property itself, as well as friends, neighbors, colleagues, relatives, pets you might need to leave behind, and the list goes on. Chances are you are going to have some mixed emotions about your leaving. It might be a good idea to plan a farewell dinner party so you can get the closure you need. This should smooth the moving process and make your transition a lot easier.
You may also help to get in touch with a psychologist and express all of your frustrations and mixed feelings.
Secure Your Items
Before you start packing your prized possessions for the day of the big move, make sure you assess everything you own. Decide what you should keep and what you should donate, sell, or recycle. Hiring a mover will cost less if you have fewer items.
While you can buy your own packing supplies and handle the process yourself, it might be a better idea to rely on experts who know what they’re doing.

Ask For Help From Friends
You could also ask for help from friends and family. Some of them might be able to help you with your temporary storage needs. However, storing a piano or your dining table and chairs in someone’s garage for a month might not be the best idea for a number of reasons. The garage or home might not be properly secured against potential burglars, and you risk having someone steal your belongings. Opting for specialized storage solutions that protect your items against fire, water, unauthorized access, mold, and other similar threats should bring you more peace of mind.
