What to Do When You’re Stressed Out About Moving


What to do when you're stressed out about moving | ChelseaDinen.com

As I prepare for my own cross country move (the fifth one to be exact!), I’m reminded of the stress and overwhelm that comes along with it.

I know how intimidating moving cross country can be, especially when you’re moving by yourself!

So, I recorded a little video for you to help when you become stressed out about moving.

I wanted to be as transparent as possible with you as I embark on my own journey of moving.

In this video, I share:
1. Some of my own “freak out moments” (I’m sure you know how those go)
2. Exactly what I do to shift my perspective away from stress and overwhelm.

When you’re finished watching the video, leave a comment below and let me know if you’ll be giving this a try.

Hint: This is a de-stressing mindset shift that can work for pretty much any life situation — not just moving to a new city. So, give it a watch and let me know what you think!

Remember, this is such a special and unique life experience and you owe it to yourself to enjoy every moment as much as possible.

Leave a comment below and let me know:
1. What was your biggest takeaway from the video?
2. What promise will you make to yourself today when it comes to releasing stress?
3. How will you remind yourself to enjoy the process?

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Remember, if you need any help at all or want personalized guidance as you embark upon your own move to a new city or across the country, get my online course where I walk you through everything you need to know about the moving process, working through your fear, letting go, settling into your new home, etc.

I am also here to work with you one-on-one. You can find out all the details about my coaching packages here. I’d be honored to work with you :)

    I know you posted this a few months ago but I thought I’d let you know that I really enjoyed your video! Your voice is so soothing and calming which really helped me absorb your message. I know everything will work out and I have to keep reminding myself of that.

    I am in the process of moving to Alabama from Illinois with my boyfriend. It was an easy decision as we both are ready for a change but sometimes I do get overwhelmed. We decided to move two months before our lease was up (it’s up on July 31 and we will be out of here on the 29th) and I have been ahead of schedule and on top of things this entire time. We decided to sell everything instead of move it all so dealing with selling was a really tough thing to handle. Now it’s all gone and our apartment is empty except what we are stuffing into our cars to take with us. I am trying to let go of the doubt in myself and the doubt from friends and family and just move on to better things.

    I read on another post of yours that you lost your mother shortly after moving back to Virginia. I lost my mother a few years ago and everything has been really tough which is one reason I wanted to move for the change. It’s also a reason this move is so tough because I don’t have her to talk to about it. Finding blogs like yours is what keeps me going! Thank you!

    Thank you for your posts, they are really helping me in this stressful time!

      Hi Jourdan! And thank you so much for your message! I know I’m a little late responding but I hope that your move to Alabama went smoothly! It sounds like you definitely had a good grasp on everything going into the move. Yes, the doubt from friends and family is always tough to deal with but I’m glad you followed your heart and moved onward to a new chapter. I’m so sorry that you too lost your mother. I know exactly what you mean about not being able to talk to her about your big life change. I found the move and the time settling into my new home to be very therapeutic and healing and I wish the same for you. Please stay in touch! xo
