When you’re trying to live mindfully, it can be really tough when stressful situations come up. Even when you’re trying to be more present, you may find that there are certain things that can stop you from actually enjoying the moment. And before you know it, you’re being dragged into mental chaos. One of those things is moving house. So let’s take a look at what you can do to make this process as easy as possible.
First of all, you’re going to want to make a conscious effort to stay as present as you possibly can during the process. Even when things start to get on top of you, take a step back, breathe, stay thankful, and then move on. If you can be more in the moment and grateful for where you are in life, and then the stress will leave you and you can continue on with your task. This isn’t as “woo woo” as you might think. I completed a mindfulness diploma back in January and have to tell you, mindful living, even with pockets of mindfulness is the way forward.
Ask For Help
Another thing to bear in mind, is that if you are struggling, then simply ask for help. Whether it’s help with packing or during the moving process, or help with your children so that you can concentrate on the tasks, getting help to stay sane is so important. We had a good friend us move last time and my youngest sister was an absolute superstar.
Finally, it’s going to really help you to make this entire process as easy as possible if you can pack carefully and consciously. By packing well, keeping everything organised, and then moving in the best possible way, as the infographic below shows, you will find moving to be more easy than stressful. This isn’t necessary if you are moving from one street to another but further afield, it could really help. We may well be moving to another country in the future (it’s an 8-10 year plan) so this would be something very relevant to us.
