Psychological Impact of Moving House – Van with a Man


Stress is just one of the ways moving can affect you. Moving house can have a huge psychological impact on everyone involved, whether this is for the best or not. From moving away from friends and family to leaving a beloved home behind, moving home can change us. Thankfully, a man with a van from Kevin’s Vans can help you to minimise this impact and help make moving an easy process.

Leaving Friends and Family

When moving long distance, often the hardest thing to do is to say goodbye to your loved ones. This means leaving behind a lot of familiarity and comfort for a new, strange and different place. You can be left feeling scared nervous and unsettled in your new home, and longing to be back home. Fortunately, in this day and age, there are plenty of ways to stay in touch with those you leave behind and it means you can look forward to being reunited.


Often moving house means letting go of beloved possessions to make room for new things in your new home. This can be difficult as many of us build up an emotional connection to our homes and possessions and letting them go can be a painful experience. But, there are also many benefits in letting go of possessions. When moving house, it is the perfect opportunity to de-clutter which will make unpacking at the other end much easier. Furthermore, by getting rid of clutter, you can unpack and settle into your new home much quicker.
