Stay in control during ‘one of life’s most stressful experiences’
There’s no question moving takes a lot out of you, no matter who you hire to help you along the way. As organizational psychologist and author of The Resilience Advantage Richard S. Citrin explained when discussing the topic with The New York Times, moving to a new environment represents a challenge that saps your mental and physical energy.
In short, during and after a big move, you can expect to be exhausted. Doing whatever it takes to make your move easier is always your best bet. And considering that the average person moves 11.4 times in their lifetime (with most moves being work-related, and women moving more often than men), knowing a few pack hacks is going to come in handy.
