With posting season upon us, many military families are getting ready to pack up their lives and take on adventure, have an even longer than usual ‘to-do’ list, and stress about a lot of thinigs you have no control over. I tackle this by taking control of the things I do have some say or control over.
May is a great month to spring clean and get a ton done before the movers even come to assess your home. The important thing is that you pace yourself and have a realistic schedule for sorting house and your lives.
The most important thing, during this busy and stressful time, is to take care of yourself. Make yourself a priority, do something selfish and self-serving for yourself each week and model the importance of self care for your family.
Don’t look at moving as a sprint because it is a marathon. When you pace yourself and take care of your needs as well as your own, you will be better able to manage your move and support your family too.
