Moving is stressful on its own! Your life seems like it is one box and roll of packaging tape away from going a bit crazy. Throw in moving during the holidays and you take it to a whole new level. CORT put together this amazing No Place Like (a New) Home for the Holidays article sharing ideas for moving and handling moving during the holidays.
There are a ton of great suggestions on easing your family into the change and making sure you don’t forget to celebrate the holidays. Bringing new traditions to the holidays along with celebrating with traditions your family has always loved.
This article was super timely for me to read…more on that soon I promise! I was reminded that even though it feels like your life is stuffed in packing boxes there are still ways to celebrate the holidays and make sure your entire family is involved.
One tip that I loved and hadn’t really thought about is the periods of grief that you experience when you move. That in between all of the moments of excitement and joy you will most likely have moments of fear and grief. Fear of the changes, losing the people you lived next to, the comfort of already having a routine and knowing what to expect.
Catharine Ecton, a life coach that helped with the No Place Like (a New) Home for the Holidays article gives multiple suggestions on how to process through these moments. In all of the crazy moments that happen with packing up your house and moving I hadn’t really thought about the grief that hits once you are at your new place. Especially if you are making a big move across country or to another city.
Knowing that this is normal and being prepared for it are so important. Also knowing that members of your family may experience change in different ways.
If you are moving soon make sure and check out the No Place Like (a New) Home for the Holidays article and all of the other great posts on the CORT Website. There are great tools and information on moving and settling in to a new home.
