Think about the holiday season and images of a warm, peaceful home, filled with family, friends, food and presents may come to mind. What you probably don’t imagine is a home full of packing boxes and a family busily planning and executing a move! A lot of the time moving is a necessity and we can’t always choose when that happens – including having to move during the holiday season.
If you’re moving this holiday season, be sure to take advantage of these tips to keep your spirits up:
Putting up traditional holiday decorations is difficult when you’re packing everything you own for a move. If it doesn’t make sense to get out all of your holiday decorations, find a few favorites and put those out to remind you and your family that it’s the holiday season.
Play holiday music while packing and do your best to create a festive atmosphere. Ask family and friends to help.
Keep a box of age-appropriate holiday coloring books, puzzles and other activities available to keep children occupied throughout the packing and moving process.
Hosting a big holiday meal around the dining room table may be your holiday tradition but you might need to reconsider taking that on in the midst of a move. Don’t feel guilty asking someone else to host this year or perhaps plan to eat out. After all it really is about enjoying time with your friends and family.
Get out and explore your new community. Most cities host special events, concerts and light displays during the holiday season that make great family activities.
Remember to take time out to relax, watch a holiday film, bake cookies.
