How to stay alert doing your move

Moving is a stressful process, no matter how many times you’ve done it in the past. When you’re constantly moving boxes, packing, coordinating schedules, and figuring out where you need to go in an unfamiliar neighborhood, it’s normal to feel exhausted quickly. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for feeling like you’re sleepwalking through the movie. Here are a few tips to help you stay energized during your Colorado moving experience.

Start Early

The more you rush the move, the more stressful it will be. You’ll have to rush and pack as quickly as possible, and this requires a lot more energy upfront, making your exhaustion even worse. Whenever possible, start packing up your house ahead of time. Breaking the work into small packing sessions lets you preserve your energy levels so you can still manage work and social obligations without overdoing it on the coffee.

Create the Perfect Playlist

Music can set the tone for your mood daily, but it also keeps you energized and motivated throughout the packing process. Pick music with a strong and fast beat. And before you panic thinking you’ll suddenly need to develop a love of techno, take a deep breath. Any fast and upbeat music will do the trick. Country, pop music, rock, and even Americana are all great options. So, start blasting those tunes!

Get Plenty of Sleep

Getting enough sleep is a tall order during a normal week when all you’re worried about is work. But when you’re moving, you need to prioritize your sleep schedule. Make sure you get at least seven hours a night leading up to and after the move. The more sleep you get, the more energized you’ll be during the move and the less risk you’ll have of getting sick when you’re in the middle of settling into your new house.

In Illinois, you can visit:

  • Millennium Park
  • Leaning Tower of Niles
  • Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library/Museum
  • Chicago Botanic Garden, Illinois
  • U.S. Grant Home State Historic Site

And much more. Find the best moving company in Illinois!

Forget the Energy Drinks

Believe it or not, energy drinks and coffee aren’t the best way to stay energized during a move. In fact, they can actually leave you feeling more tired. Why? Because after the sugar and caffeine wear off, you’ll crash and end up feeling more tired than you did before. Instead, opt for lots of water and eat healthy snacks like fruit, nuts, granola, and even dark chocolate to give yourself a natural pick-me-up. This way, you’ll avoid the energy crash and won’t have to worry about caffeine jitters.

Take Breaks

It’s tempting to keep working until everything is done and your house is packed, but your body and mind will need a break now and then. As a general rule, stop what you’re doing and take a break every two to three hours to work on your move. The breaks don’t have to belong, but you need to take time away from the tasks. Otherwise, you might find yourself feeling burned out in a matter of hours.

The best way to stay energized during your upcoming move is to hire an experienced moving team to help. Contact us today to schedule an estimate and see just how easy your move can be.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
