It has been scientifically proven that music can be a source of motivation. Moving your home can, at times, be overwhelming. Music has also been proven to be uplifting to your being. This is why I have chosen to make a list of possible songs you could add to your playlist to motivate you through the days of packing and moving.


Not only so, but playing music can also help to lower your stress level. More so, upbeat music can make your feel optimistic which leads to positive feelings. Music has, at times, been called “an effective stress management tool.” [https://psychcentral.com/lib/the-power-of-music-to-reduce-stress#1]

A playlist of songs for packing and moving would, of course, need to fit into the genre of music you best “groove” to. Whether your love of music is classical, rock & roll, rock, pop or hip hop, there are always songs for you.

Since I have no idea what genre you actually do like, I have made an eclectic list. Eclectic is defined as “taste from a wide range of sources.” So, here it is. The ultimate packing and moving playlist. If you need a little push to get you inspired to pack, this playlist will help. Keep reading to find our top 40-playlist to assist you in this task.
