5 Must dos while shifting home

home-shiftingThe A to Z list: Take time and prepare a checklist. Write down everything which needs to be done, from paying your newspaper boy to the list of people you need to say goodbye. It is easy to let something important slip away while you are having so much in your mind. A list will give you the confidence that you will not miss out on anything.

Plan your move in advance: The more time you have the easier the shift is. A gradual change is better than a last-minute huff-puff. It not only gives you enough buffer time in case everything does not go according to plan but also helps you and your family to emotionally adjust to the fact that you are moving to a new home.

Talk to your children: Dealing with kids while shifting is one helluva task. Most of them will find leaving their friends and surrounding traumatic. Sit with them and tell them what will change and what will remain the same. Ask them to collect phone numbers and mail ids of their friends so that they can stay in touch. Talk to them about their new school and type of people they will come across. Involve them while packing up their bags and goodies so that they feel responsible and not left out.

Pack with care: Today packing is well taken care by professional movers. But that does not mean you should not be involved. Who would like to see their favourite vase broken during the moving process. Make sure everything is properly bundled and fragile items are well packed before loading. Consider taking your favourite items along with you in the car.

Be positive: Yes, shifting residence will sap your energy. Do not let the grief of leaving your home and anxieties about the new surroundings overwhelm you. Learn to take one day at a time. Focus on the shift and hope for a good home and happiness. The positive energy will help you move forward without trouble.
