For instance, set the moving date, check all is in order and start packing in an organized manner. It sounds simple right? Not really, moving is not simple particularly if you have a family or if you work away from home. If the anxiety is taking over, you need to take a break. Go for a job or binge watch your favourite TV show.
Double check everything
You may have heard of moves going wrong. This happens over and over because someone forgot to check the details. This is where a to-do list comes in useful.

Pack a carry-on
Do not underestimate the value of a carry-on, whether it is a box, bag or suitcase, just pack the essentials you will need in the next 24 hours after the move. For instance, clothing, supplies for children, tea and coffee, a toaster, even a kettle can be included in an emergency box.
