Moving During the Holidays Made Easy (Plus Free Printable Wall Art)

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of CORT. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I was in college, my parents moved out of my childhood home in the very late Fall. This meant that when I came home for the holidays, it was to a brand new house. And while it was awesome to finally have a real mantle to hang our stockings from, I was a bit homesick for our old family room and the silly cardboard fireplace my dad would put up every year.

Moving is stressful at any age. The holidays can intensify that stress, whether you're in the process of relocating or are just getting settled in new home. Fortunately, there are a few things that you can do to make moving during the holidays easier on everyone in the family.

What to Do When You're Moving During the Holidays

It's all about the attitude.

When you're moving during the holidays, it's all about your outlook on the situation. It's natural to feel anxiety or even grief during a big transition, but focusing on the new adventure that awaits you is what's important. Give yourself permission to feel your emotions, and try to embrace the excitement that comes with change. Remember, there's No Place Like (a New) Home for the Holidays.

Be mindful of the entire family.

When my parents moved, I was almost an adult myself, so I was able to understand and process the transition well. For families with younger children, moving during the holidays requires a bit more consideration.

Communicate with your kids every step of the way, acknowledge their feelings, and work with them to connect with their new home and community. And of course, use the wonderful technology that we have today to stay in touch with friends and family who may now be far away.

Have fun decorating.

For me, having many of our old holiday decorations out really helped to make our new house feel like home. And it was fun to add new touches like brand new stockings for that mantle we had always wanted.
