If you plan on taking time off for your move, which is completely understandable, make sure you are giving your employer the proper amount of notification.
Most people chose to do their heavy lifting days on the weekend. This way they will only have to take off a day or two to unpack and set up necessities. This is of course all dependent on your distance of move, employer, how much help and belongings you have, so decide the amount of time you want to take off accordingly.
Also, don’t be afraid to give yourself an extra day off in case of any mishaps or to just relax. Moving can be very stressful, especially if you have kids. Take time to hang out with your family in your new home and become acquainted with your new surroundings. It’s a big change and should be treated as such!
Things to do to help unwind from moving
- Make a home cooked meal
- Go see a movie
- Take a walk around your new neighborhood
- NAP! It’s seriously okay to rest!
- Go to a coffee shop
It really is reasonable to take time off for a move. Just ensure your employers are aware and do what you need to do to make it as stress free as you possibly can.
