This content has been reviewed by the National Van Lines Team

Moving day can be chaotic and exhausting, but with the right strategies, you can keep stress at bay and even enjoy the experience. Here are five tips to help you stay positive and make the most of your moving day.

  1. 😊 Stay Positive and Upbeat
    Maintaining a positive attitude is crucial. Moving from a beloved home can be emotional, but it’s also the start of a new chapter. Embrace the adventure by laughing, joking, and even singing. A positive attitude is contagious and can transform the atmosphere, making the day more enjoyable for everyone.
  2. 🎶Keep the Music Playing
    Music can be a great mood booster. Create a playlist for yourself or family’s favorite songs with various artists everyone loves. Keeping the music lively and upbeat can make the moving process feel faster and more enjoyable.
  3. 🥪 Plan for Great Food
    Food can significantly lift spirits. Plan ahead and have a variety of delicious options ready for moving day. Consider organizing a picnic with family favorites, such as a batch of fried chicken or a selection from a local delicatessen. Don’t forget to have plenty of drinks and snacks on hand for everyone, including your movers. Good food can provide much-needed energy and keep everyone in good spirits.
  4. 🎊 Make it a Party
    Transform the moving experience into a celebration. Host a get-together the night before moving day with friends, family, and neighbors. This can be a wonderful way to reminisce about the good times you’ve had in your home and create a festive atmosphere.
  5. 📦 Build a Box Fort
    Once you arrive at your new home, involve your kids in building a fort with the empty moving boxes. This fun activity can help them burn off extra energy and feel more excited about the move. It’s a simple way to create a memorable and playful experience in your new space. Make Moving with children fun!
