Let’s face it, relocating an entire office is the pits. It takes time, preparation, and lots of planning which can interfere with the day-to-day tasks of owning and running a business. While most people dread moving, there are ways to manage the stresses of moving. In today’s blog post, we look at some useful stress-relieving tips for you to consider during the relocation process.

Get a Head Start
It’s never too early to start planning your move. In fact, the sooner you can start, the better! A good rule of thumb is to start planning two to three months ahead of your move so that you can start tackling moving tasks that could take some time. For instance, once you have determined a clear plan for your move, start by simply evaluating your possessions. This will give you a chance to donate unwanted furniture but keep in mind that you will need to coordinate with a charity or second-hand store to schedule a pick-up.
Start with the Non-Essentials
Start packing the non-essential items in your office first. This will give you a good jump on packing rather than saving it all for the days before you move. While this is a fairly simple task, you may first need to determine what you would consider the essentials versus the non-essentials. Once you figure this out, carefully pack these items and group them together according to function, making sure to label each box, which will make unpacking straightforward and organized.
Give Yourself a Break
Make sure to make time for yourself during the move to decompress. Moving an entire office is a lot of work, both mentally and physically, which is why it’s important to give yourself a chance to relax, take a walk, get a workout in, or whatever else helps you relax.
