Ways to Reduce Stress When You’re Moving

Mortgage and Lending with Peoples Bank

Buying and selling a home and moving is one of the most stressful processes on the human psyche. It is important that while going through the real estate process, you find time to take care of yourself.

Just like on an airplane, you have to put an oxygen mask on yourself before helping anyone else. This means that in order to be able to take care of things and other people, it is important that you make sure you take care of yourself first.

Savor time taking care of yourself to reduce the stress of moving.

Try setting aside relaxation time just for yourself each day, and do something you enjoy, despite the hectic and stressful nature of moving.

Reading a good book, spending time outside, taking a long bath, getting a massage - things like this will help you reduce your stress level immensely. With less real estate stress, handling the details will be easier.

I suggest to my clients and do this myself : Breathe, meditate, get outdoors and take a break and remember the hectness can be joyful. Clients are afterall preparing to move into their new dream home. Savor the experience use the adrenaline to advantage and be productive when it is rushing and then rest.

Give your clients a gift of herbal tea or a microwaveable herbal heating pad if they are stressed out or a funny movie and some popcorn to encourage a night off. The little things can make an impact.
