MOVING DURING A DIFFICULT TIME AND HOW TO HANDLE IT

Relocating to another home, in and of itself, can be difficult and stressful. However,

when you factor in things such as an economic crisis, separation/divorce or even a death, you

might just find yourself saying ENOUGH!!



The truth is, not everyone has the option to sit down and quit when these types of issues

crowd their lives and attempt to overthrow their plans. Whether to move or not may not be an option. Rather, it may be a necessity. Interiors for Seniors is prepared to assist you in your move, even through these types of difficult times.


ECONOMIC CRISIS

Moving when you have lost your job or have had a costly illness will sometimes require

you to pull in your belt and make monetary adjustments. When this occurs, some people feel it is a good time to downsize and move elsewhere, to a place that costs less to maintain. Here is a time when you need to be able to not only cope with your crisis, but have the disposition to carry out the task. Remember that giving up is never a solution. Try to research things or else talk to a knowledgeable person, or even just a friend who you can help you to understand the options you have available in order to alleviate your situation. Perhaps a solution would lie in acquiring a new job or cutting back on food costs by adjusting your purchasing habits.


SEPARATION OR DIVORCE

Separating or divorcing you partner is definitely one of the items that is on the list of

difficult times to overcome when moving. It always requires that at least one, but maybe both of the partners involved, relocate. There is also the separation of belongings, i.e., who gets what. This can include anything from the children, to the pets and most certainly, the household items.


All the answers to these issues will be needed in order to know where you should live. Herein

lays the reasons why it is important to have clear thinking and that you remain well-organized to accomplish this. Remember that negativity is not the answer. It will only serve to make a difficult situation worse. Remember to pause and breathe should you find yourself becoming stressed. Give yourself a few minutes, knowing that the answers will come to you soon.


DEATH

Perhaps you are working through a recent death. If moving, you may have a difficult time in choosing what to keep and not to keep, especially if the items in question belong to a loved one who has recently passed. This type of decision is not one that should be done under such duress. It would be best if you have a question about what and what not to keep, to merely keep it and store it until you can make a better choice. It is a good idea to have a close member of your family or else a friend to assist you with this, since you may not have the wherewithal to even pack.
