Finding Motivation to Unpack After Moving

To have a successful move, you need to push and pace yourself as much as possible. When everything is successfully packed and moved into your new home, you might just want to unwind. However, unpacking is the crucial final task of a move. Feeling wiped out and unmotivated to unpack is understandable, however, the more you put it off, the more of a pain it becomes. Here are some ways to help you find the motivation to unpack after moving. 

Tackle one room at a time

Instead of thinking about how you need to unpack everything all at once, focus on each room, starting with the ones you need right awayAfter youfigure out where you want to begin, put your focus on that room. For instance, you’ll likely want to be settled into your bedroom as early as possible. So, you should make sure all your bedroom furniture and other belongings are unpacked. You might also feel the need to have your kitchen goods unpacked and set up right away. Having the most important things unpacked should be a priority and will help make you feel more at home.

Set a short timer 
 
One of the biggest blocks to motivation is our minds. Sometimes, we have such a difficult time getting started that we end up never getting anywhere. To overcome this obstacle, you need to trick your brain. Set a timer for ten minutes (an interval that’s easy to comply with) and tell yourself you will work for that amount of time. Get started on unpacking your room of choice; when the alarm goes off, it’s likely that you’ll be so locked into your task that you’ll keep at it. Even if you don’t feel like continuing, you will have made a significant dent into your work. 

Work with others 
 
“Many hands make light work.”  As arduous of a task as unpacking can be, it can be made all the easier with extra hands. Work together with other family members in each room. If you’re moving by yourself, you can enlist the help of friends. It’s important that you give them compensation of some kind, such as buying them lunch or helping them with a favor in the future. 

Hire professionals

You’ve heard of professional movers, but have you also heard of professional unpackers? An unpacking service can provide you with a great deal of help in the moving process. Unpackers will assemble furniture, put things in their place and help with overall organization. This is an excellent choice for anyone with a particularly hectic schedule who doesn’t have time to unpack as quickly as they would like. 

We hope this has ignited the motivation to get unpacked!  While you might be dreading it, the sooner you get started, the sooner you can finish.
