Ways to Reduce the Stress of Moving to a New City

How will you manage everything on your own? What if you don’t like your new job or college? Where will you live? How can you rent flats in Bangalore? How will you travel? What if you don’t make friends? If these are some questions on your mind as you plan to move to a new city, we can totally relate. Moving is a stressful process, especially for a first timer. You have to plan and replan, make important decisions and manage your finances. At the same time, you’re filled with excitement at the prospect of moving to Bangalore and nervousness at the thought of leaving everything familiar behind. It’s pretty natural to feel tense or stressed about the major changes that are coming your way. But chronic stress can get in the way of your ability to adapt and adjust and cause you even more problems. That’s why we are here to help you out. Here are our top tips to help you reduce the stress of moving to a new city.

Take breaks

It’s fairly obvious that there are a lot of steps to planning a move. And if you try to do it all in one go, it can get really overwhelming. So, make sure that you’re taking adequate breaks between tasks. You don’t need to pack up your entire room (or unpack it all) in one day. Take time to sort through your belongings so that you only pack what you really need and donate or sell the rest. If you have site visits planned to finalise your housing, make sure that you don’t try and cram them all in a day. Space them out so that you can view each place with a clear mind and without the pressure of making a decision hanging over your head.

Keeps snacks handy

Moving day is going to be a really busy time for you. Between coordinating with the movers, arranging your own travel and finalising the details with your landlord, you’re barely going to have the time to breathe, let alone have a complete meal. But if you’re working on an empty stomach, you’re more likely to feel stressed and frustrated. So, make sure that you keep a water bottle and some snacks handy throughout the day. You can munch on them in your breaks and even share them with your new roommate (who’s likely to be pretty stressed about moving in too). Keeping yourself fueled is going to help you feel a lot calmer on D-day.

Choose hassle-free housing

Sure, you could hire a broker, or go through the arduous process of finding the perfect apartment for yourself, setting it up with utilities and spending a tonne of money sourcing daily support for cooking, housekeeping, cleaning etc. Or you could do the smart thing and choose the stress-free option of booking a professionally managed accommodation. Players like Stanza Living have set up fully furnished residences with the best of amenities and conveniences to make moving to a new city super easy and hassle free for young people like you.
