Moving Tips: Prepare yourself for the move

Getting a good amount of sleep before the move is important.

Getting a good amount of sleep before the move is important.

The move can be exhausting, so you will want to make sure that you are well-prepared for the long day ahead, especially if you are meeting your moving company at destination that is a long drive away. By taking some measures to be ready the night before, you could increase the chances of moving energized and happy.

Get enough rest before the move. You should try to get a good amount of sleep for several nights leading up to the move, but that can be difficult for some. If you can, try to go to bed early the night before you have to make your trip. You will likely feel more energized in the morning, and it will increase the chances of you having a productive day. By feeling tired during the entirety of the move, you could end up taking far longer than you initially planned.

It is a good idea to avoid alcohol or parties the night before your move. While you may want to have a going away party or outing with your friends, it is a smart plan to do this well in advance of the actual moving day. Drinking can not only dehydrate you, but it can make you feel exhausted for the entire next day. Staying alcohol-free for this period may help you feel more ready to move.

Make sure everything is done well before your moving day. This means that you shouldn't be packing much, if anything at all, the night before. Having everything done already will give you a chance to relax and get everything together in time for the rest of the move.
