Whether you’ve just started dating someone or have been married for decades, you’ve likely already encountered some stressful situations. Maybe you’ve been with each other through tough times or had to have hard conversations about how to budget.
Still, it’s hard to prepare for a move as a couple. Moving is one of the most stressful undertakings in life, especially if you’re planning a long-distance overhaul. But it doesn’t have to be difficult. Just like anything else in life, preparation is key. Here are some tips for moving as a couple without going nuts.
1. Make A Plan
Start planning your move now––it’s never too soon to work out the details! The week of your move doesn’t have to be distressing, especially if you make it a priority to communicate regularly with each other. What are you each expecting from the move? How much time are you willing to dedicate to packing beforehand? You’ll want to make sure you’re splitting the labor as evenly as possible to avoid resentment.
2. Take Regular Breaks
As you prepare for your move, it’s important to take regular breaks and prioritize quality time. Sure, you have a long to-do list, but overworking isn’t going to help your relationship. Take a break and grab frozen yogurt together, or maybe you can watch your favorite television show. You can avoid needless arguments by making it a goal to get enough sleep and rest well.
3. Hire Professional Movers
One of the easiest ways to avoid the stress of moving is to ask for professional help. Professional movers will be there from the start, and they’ll be able to handle the most demanding parts of your move.
