You just told a friend you’re relocating, and her response was, “I’m sorry. Can I help you in any way?” She might have said the same thing if you had told her you had just lost your job, or your pet or wrecked your car.

A lot of stress originates from feeling flooded and out of control. Here are a few tips on how to remove the stress of moving in three sure-fire steps:
Hire help early on. Schedule appointments well in advance for the services you plan to rent. Many qualified experts can help whether you’re moving within the city, or outside Canada. Don’t limit your calls to professional local moving companies only. Here are a few other services to consider contacting:
- Repair or handyman services

Putting off the organizing and packing will only increase your stress. Give yourself two to three months to handle the details. You can remove trash, have a garage sale and complete paperwork weeks or even months before relocating. If you have to move last minute, skilled Toronto movers can help.

Often, a feeling of powerlessness is the root of stress. Maybe moving wasn’t your choice, but events out of your control are commanding the change. If that’s the case, take control of the process. Create a list of everything that needs to be done and work your way through it. Use this chance to purge excess items from your life by selling or donating or things you don’t need anymore.
