4 Tips For Dealing With Stress When Moving For A JobPosted on: Monday, September 26th, 2022
Dealing With the Stress of a Move for a Job
How many people move each year due to a new job? When you couple the actual move, starting over in a new neighborhood, and then starting a new job, it equals a lot of stress!
While we can help you with the stress of moving, what we can’t handle for you is the stress of starting a new job in a new area. For this reason, we have gathered a few helpful tips to help you to navigate this unique opportunity and feel more at ease!
Get Your Setup Complete
You may be working from home half the time and at your new employer’s office half the time. The key to getting started on the right foot is ensuring that your setup at home is ready for you. If you moved a great desk, be sure it is set up. But, also be sure that your chair is going to be comfortable. Knowing that your workspace is ready for you helps to lower your stress tremendously.
Unpack Your Work Clothes
Make sure your work clothes are unpacked and ready for you to wear, whether this means having these cleaned or ironing these so that you look the part. If you used a wardrobe box when moving these, chances are they are ready to go as soon as you take these out of the box and place these into the closet.
Have Your Small Intro Ready
When you show up at a new workplace, it is inevitable that people will ask you questions and want to know more about you. So, have your small intro ready to go. Talk about where you moved from, why you did this, and any other information you are willing to share. Remember, these are your new coworkers, so they will become the people you spend a lot of time around.
Get Out And Enjoy Your New Area
While your house may need to be set up depending on how much you could get done before your new job, remember to take time for yourself. Don’t turn down your new coworkers when they ask you out for a drink after work on Friday. Take some time to enjoy your new area and let yourself relax.
