Check out these strategies Route 66 Moving came up with to find the humor in moving and maybe even have a good time. You’re going to have to move anyway, so why not laugh a little?
How to Have a Good Time and Laugh While Long Distance Moving
Prepare for the move by focusing on your perspective.
Let’s face it; you can make or break your moving experience with a frown on your face, or you can go into it with a smile. Moving is as painful as you make it, and having a good attitude can take the moving process from ‘hellish’ to ‘acceptable’. It’s all a matter of how you look at it. It takes the time to focus on your perspective and your emotions about the moving process– being grouchy can often be a cover for feelings about leaving your home for a new one. Moving can be a chance to invite everyone over for last drinks or a last dinner and barbecue. It’s an opportunity to mourn your old life and begin transitioning to embrace a new one.
Keep champagne in the fridge for when things go wrong.
A great tactic that cannot be praised enough have a bottle of champagne ready in the cooler is a genius move. Promise yourself that you’ll pop it when something goes wrong. Instead of being mad when unexpected problems pop up, you’ll have a reason to pop the bubbly and have a good time. If that isn’t the right way to move, we don’t know what is.
Keep your sense of humor.
It’s always more fun to laugh than cry, so be sure to keep your sense of humor during the move. If you can shrug off the bad parts of moving a long distance and focus on what is working, you’ll do just fine.
Take breaks to watch funny movies.
A comedy movie can do wonders for your mood. Pop in a DVD at the end of the day, relax and laugh. Packing and preparing for a move can be tiring and stressful, so you’ll need something to fight those draining elements.
Spend extra time with your family and friends.
Instead of mourning leaving the people you love behind, take this time to make an effort to spend more time together. Whether it’s going to the movies, out to eat, the park, playing games, or just going out and doing things, you can make your move a delightful experience instead of a bittersweet one.
Have a long distance moving party with your friends.
Invite all your friends and prepare your home for a party one last time. It can be a party to celebrate you’re moving long distance or a party where people help you move. Either way, with games, drinks, food and friends, it’ll be a great way to start long distance moving and say goodbye to your home.
