How To Make Big Life Changes Easier

I've got some BIG news to share!

I want to thank Atlanta Peach Movers for sponsoring this post! All opinions are mine. Thank you for supporting the brands that make this space possible.

Big life changes such as changing jobs, moving states (or even cities!), getting married, graduating from college, and more, has the potential to be very stressful, even if you are more than likely excited for the specific change that you are going through. Why? Because any big change, especially while you are in it, gives you an uneasy feeling because you do not really know what to expect.

A great example of a big life change is changing jobs and guess what? I'm doing just that! I just accepted a new job as a digital content producer working for Gray TV's Digital Content Center in Atlanta. I start in about a month and I'm so excited (and a little nervous!) for this big change. Changing jobs can be hard. Putting in applications and going to interviews take time and really require you to be on your A-game, right? It can be stressful and even a bit scary when you start the application process for new jobs and not to mention how upsetting it can be when you receive a rejection e-mail, but isn't it a great feeling when you get that call with a job offer? This new job I'll be starting is seriously a dream job for me and I'm so excited, but I'll be honest, the process of change can be stressful.

Big life changes can make people feel uneasy, which is upsetting because one you get set into that new change, it’s usually an amazing thing and you look back wondering why you were ever stressed or nervous in the first place. So, to try and avoid as much nervousness as possible, you should try to make your big changes a bit easier on yourself. Here’s a few ways that help me make big life changes easier.

First of all, you need to prepare for your life change. To give you an example of a life change, let’s just pretend that you are moving - long distance moving Atlanta. I actually will be moving. I'm in the metro Atlanta area, but I'll be moving closer to my new job. Moving long distance from or to Atlanta definitely needs lots of preparations. First, you need to make sure that you are all set when it comes to where you are moving to and how you are getting there. Then, you need to create a checklist of everything that needs to happen before the move, during the move, and once you move in. This will help you stay on track and will hopefully ease nerves because when I move, I always feel as if I am forgetting something. A way to avoid this completely, or at least limit these feelings, is to be prepared. Of course, if you do not write everything down on your list, this way of preparation could fail and things do also pop up along the way, but as long as you try to prepare as much as possible, then you will most definitely feel better about your big life change.

Gear Up Mentally
Next step to making your big life change a bit easier is by preparing mentally. You need to accept that things are changing and that you might go through a period of transition, but this is okay. This is a natural part of life and most of the time, this will just lead to bigger and better things - good things! You’ve got this, but do not be afraid to work through your emotions (and better to do so before your big life change!).

Set Aside Time
Obviously, a necessary step when it comes to going through a life change is to set aside time. No matter what it is, you are going to have to put in the work and make things happen for yourself. If you are moving, you may have to pack, or at least write up a packing list. If you are changing jobs, you will probably be uncomfortable for the first few weeks (or longer) and you will have to set aside time to get to know your co-workers, learn the ins and outs of the company, and understand what you are supposed to be doing. Every big life change comes with a learning curve and this just involves setting aside time to try and go with that learning curve.

Hire Professionals
With any big life change, one of the best ways to limit the stress put on yourself is by hiring professionals. With moving specifically (especially when it comes to long distance moves), I highly recommend hiring people to help you out. Atlanta Peach Movers believes that your needs are their #1 priority.

Treat Yourself
Last but not least, once you are finished with the stressful aspect of your big life change, find time to treat yourself! This doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Maybe it’s a new table for the kitchen in your new home, or a new clothing item for your new desk job. Or, maybe you just want to go to a movie, or get a drink. Whatever you consider treating yourself, do it!
