Don't Forget Self-Care When Moving to Colorado Springs

Manicure before MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Let's be honest …the bulk of planning and dealing with a household move often times falls on the women in the family. Despite the fact that many women nowadays are employed, this sort of "household tasks" continue to be considered as "women's work". And here's the truth-many women are better organized, better at multi-tasking, and far better at making decisions. Therefore, while it's probably very little comfort that you, the mighty Mom which keeps it all together, will be the only one capable of getting it done, it could drive you even crazier not to be in control. Thus, on this Mother's Day, we salute all women and remind you to take a moment for yourself, particularly if you are in the middle of moving to a new house in Colorado Springs.
 

Two Kinds of Stress during Moves

Alright, there are far more than two, but let's concentrate on the main tensions--physical and psychological. Below are some tips on how to manage those tensions in the time before a long-distance move to Colorado Springs or even a local move in Colorado Springs--it seems like a bad time to commence a new self-care regimen, but it is likely to preserve your sanity ultimately.

Moving Can be Painful

It can help to be in fine condition when you are getting ready to move. Except if you employ a full-service professional moving company, in which they come pack your household things, almost all of it falls on you--sometimes literally, when you are digging out the closets. This indicates much more lifting and bending than you might be accustomed to, and more soreness by the end of the day. You may be too occupied to maintain your gym routine, therefore those tight muscles just stay home and brood, and get more tight each day.

A massage works miracles for your back muscle tissue and relieve some of the tensions you might be carrying these days. If you possibly could manage to arrange one for every few weeks amidst the packing chaos, it's going to do magic for your body and mind. Even thirty minutes in a massage chair takes away some stress and tension.

It's not precisely the opportunity to begin a new exercise program, however if you presently have a workout plan, do not neglect your classes--they're doing your body some good, and getting you out from the boxes on occasion. Getting the endorphins going also eliminates the enduring strain you are feeling.

Mental Health Therapy

The emotional anxiety associated with a move is every bit as crippling as sore muscles, but many times it is harder to treat. Leaving your residence, even in the ideal circumstances, can be emotionally difficult. In case your move is taking you out of town, get the most from the time you have in your old area. Keep in your routines with friends--make an hour or two for a cup of joe or lunch and continue your children's schedules as long as you can. This keeps them occupied so they aren't so preoccupied with leaving their friends.

Here are several things you can do for psychological health care prior to your move.

· Step out from the preparing and packing to do activities with good friends.

· Plan a girls' weekend in the new city for a few weeks after you move.

· Get a sitter and go to dinner with your spouse. Moving discussion will not be permitted.

· Set up a pampering pedicure--the type with the long foot massage. Postpone on the manicures until the tape goo is off your fingers.

· Now is the time to try a new hair color or cut--when you move, no one will know it is the "new" you. The new neighbors are likely to think you've always had hot pink extensions.

· Right now is not the chance to experiment with permanent body art. You might regret a hip tattoo of your old house sooner than later.

It's okay to allow yourself to be sad over a move--you have built a life and memories, and they're difficult to leave behind. Yet permitting the doldrums to take over and staying home all the time to pack cartons is not the solution. Step away each day and go do something only for you--sometimes even Wonder Woman needs a break.

And, if you want help arranging or performing any portion of your local or long-distance residential move, locate a professional moving company in Colorado Springs that will provide as much or as little guidance as you need. Want to know where to begin? Contact A-1 Freeman Moving Group today!
