You experienced special moments with your family inside the house. Hence with so many memories attached the thought of leaving trickles tears down your eyes.  

However, remember that it’s natural to experience sadness and no matter where you go memories can be carried along with you. Give yourself time and focus on your future and see sadness vanish away. 


Anxiety, the fear of the unknown, always accompanies you when moving to a place strange to you. With so many changes occurring, things scattered around and landing in a place unknown to you, irrational fears or phobias race your mind. Will my things get damaged during the shift? Does the new town have the facilities I seek? Are the neighbors helpful?   

Well, every new beginning is difficult and the best you can do is to keep yourself calm and acclimatize to the new environment with passing days. As your new life unfolds all your doubts and fears will die down. 

Anger and irritation 

Now that the home relocation has brought chaos and stress you may feel a bit irritated. Not able to find the key or an important document you need may manifest itself in anger and arguments. Also, dishonest or fraud movers and damaged items can add fuel to the fire. 

The best way to overcome anger and irritation is to pack your things early and label all your boxes to find your stuff when you need it. Hire reputable movers and packers to take care of the move, so that the moving journey is smooth and damage-free. Also try out some de-stress activities like walking, yoga and meditation. 


Though fear of the unknown may overwhelm some, the prospect of a new place, new friends, and new life may excite some. But in a new city it takes some time to make new friends and learn about the places. This is when loneliness seeps in as you are all by yourself with no help or support. 

The solution is to relax and experience life as it comes. Explore your new neighborhood, greet your neighbors or join hobby groups and soon you’ll have company. Tour the city to locate attractions and amenities. This’ll let you gain control and evade the loneliness feel.
