Fighting against Micro stressors of Home Relocation

November 4, 2023

Small things add up and this is true even for stress. During a home relocation, you are juggling with so many things that you can’t miss out on the important ones. Things like misplacing a key, erroneous labeling, or not knowing where you placed an important document can magnify your stress and make you lose your mind.

Most of us dread a home relocation because of so much to do at the same time and disruptions in our routine. Understanding and managing your micro stressors can help lower your stress during the move period. As experienced movers and packers in Doha, we understand how small unnoticed aspects pile up to cause an unusual amount of stress and to help you avoid such situations we caution you on a few important things you need to take care of.

Be careful when packing pairs

Own beautiful pairs of earrings? A jewelry set? Have a fetish collection of shoes? You may be tempted to pack pairs of valuables and things of sentimental value straight into boxes and sort them later. This step, though easy, can cause you a lot of confusion and worry to search for a missing earring, bangle or one of the shoes among the boxes. It will be like finding a needle in a haystack.

The best way is to pack pairs of items together in small containers, before dumping them into a box. You can also use tape to tie and fasten them onto each other. This way you’ll find them easily and be saved from a lot of emotional turmoil.

File your important documents

Your certificates, driving license, credit cards, debit cards, id card though small are the most important things among your belongings. A misplacement can cause you havoc as such things aren’t easy to replace or renew in one go.

So instead of you breaking your mind recalling where you kept your missing certificate or ID card, it’s better to have them neatly stacked in a file or card holder so that you can retrieve them in one go.

Keep your kids toys together

Those who have young kids very well know how a missing toy accessory, or a missing piece of the puzzle can get them throwing temper tantrums or go into uncontrollable crying.

Hence when packing your kids’ favorite toys, you need to be cautious to pack them up all together. Small pieces of puzzles, building blocks, or Lego pieces can be sealed in zip lock pouches or plastic containers to avoid misplacement or loss.

Box and label your medicines

Are you asthmatic? Suffer from frequent migraines? A health attack such as breathlessness or severe headache can get you spiraling out of control during the move. In such cases, immediate medication turns a savior to regain your calm and control.

You know your health condition better, so when packing your medicines, it’s best to label and carry the essential ones in your handbag or backpack. This’ll help you access them quickly and rescue your health in the event of sudden sickness.

Such incidents of micros stress though not so obvious initially impact us in a big way as they build up. Avoiding such carelessness can reduce major stress to our mind when moving.
