Moving out can be an exciting or stressful experience, depends on the person you ask. But both have one thing in common – they are equally in danger of having cold feet before the big day.
Seeing as moving is a life-altering decision, it’s normal to have a last-minute panic attack and question whether you’re doing the right thing or setting out to ruining your life.
Although not scientifically documented, cold feet is inevitable for anyone embarking on a major life change. Don’t let this add further stress to your life. Sit down, relax, and just focus on getting past it.
First thing’s first – get rid of negative thoughts.
One cause of cold feet is the baseless anxiety. From that, your brain will start asking a million questions and picturing worst-case scenarios. Will my things arrive safely? What if the new environment has a spider infestation? What if everyone hates me there?
It’s not as easy as just erasing them out of your mind. There has to be actual, tangible effort on your part to be free from anxiety. One way is preparation. Being well prepared significantly reduces anxiety.
First of all, you need to hire good removals to transport your things, so that when the time comes, you can relax because you know you hired the best removal company Perth has to offer. Then get in touch with the new landlord and secure an appointment with the nearest pest-terminator in the case of a plague.
You can’t predict nor tell people’s perception of you, but what you can do is try to make a good impression. Ask your landlord about your new neighbours and discover their interests, so come meeting time, you’ll come prepared.
One way of washing out negative thoughts is knowing what you will be in for. Knowledge helps you think of solutions to eliminate the cause of your stress. As a result, coming up with workable solutions to your problems can help you beat anxiety.
But they’re just examples. You may be dealing with other feelings, dreading other scenarios, and having different thoughts. Just keep in mind cold feet in every situation is the same – it has to be overcome, and it can be.
