Sofia Quesada (36) He said he had "sailed" cervical contracture and liver disease for a week. She had to move, and as a result, her physical and mental health came at a price.
“I don't know what stressed me the most because the change was for the better, but I think it was the economic issue. Leave everything correctly or get used to a new place. I had a flabby cervical contracture and liver disease for a week. Another thing was, for example, things that didn't work well and you get nervous. What I miss most is my previous kitchen and I'm not used to it ” pointed out.
Like Sofia, there are many who are affected by the stress of relocating. Often because the contract is terminated and sometimes for much more serious reasons, such as the separation of a couple.
Margarita, 24, also pointed out the money – which in his case was scarce – as one of the stressors. The young woman moved to a city department a few months ago.
“You pay the month of rent and the commission with the same amount and a deposit for a larger amount. Also, it's hard to leave a space you've felt to start in a new and unknown, carrying your furniture and your story everywhere. Stress adapts, new neighbors, new ones. ”he said, adding that even the cat suffered the consequences of the change because it spent a week without leaving the padding.
For her part, Cecilia (43) separated from her partner, with a three-year-old son involved.
She left the house they shared, and although she didn't have the pressure of time because it was mutually agreed, she had to start taking things slowly.
“The question of not going against the clock is what helped. Nor the complications that arise from finding no place. Make the decision to take my son out of his house and take him to a new house, and make him a house, make him his room; That was stressful, ”he said.

He also said that he felt an "important emotional noise", but that he always preferred to go through this moment looking for joy because, besides the delicate moment, there always is. "It's a decision for yourself, but when there is a third or more of a child involved, going out and taking her out of the house where she was born is something I can't yet process," he said.
A micro loss
Psychologist Dina Federman indicated that movement is a kind of "micro loss" also associated with a duel that, while not generating depression, generates the same stress.. “It's a combination of situations that a movement causes. It is a moment of sharp things moving, ”said the expert.
In detail, he said there is much of the emotional deposited on the spot – in spaces and objects – that a person is leaving. “It's a time to decide what to wear, what to play, what things do, what things don't. It moves things that are inside a " Federman commented.
This situation is reflected, for example, in the story told by Fiorella Rímola (36), who claims to have at least 20 removals in her story.. “You need to try to be as logical as possible, see the positive side of change and focus on improvement. There is no need to curl up with the farewell because it is a slowdown and does not add up, ”said Fiorella.
He added that The emotional stress of leaving a place you are familiar with and have an order, a routine, should be considered.. "To have to generate it all over again, you have to look for the way your things fit together and even get rid of the belongings in the process," he said.
Continuing with the psychologist, the professional indicated that we should also balance the fact that we move alone or with the company (couple, children or other family member). In this senseHe explained that there are internal discussions of their own that also create stressful situations.

“You face things that hurt you, that you didn't remember what you had and brought back memories. Also with smells that resemble moving emotions.
It also confronts him with greater responsibilities, ”said Federman.
For your partFabian Morales, which has been moving for two years, said it shows people's nerves when they move and that this feeling often transfers to those responsible for moving furniture.
“We receive objects that we should treat as if they were ours. But we try to make people ignore and be able to let go of everything. And to avoid starting badly, the first thing we do is get on time, ”Morales explained.
Fiorella which, as said, has several back removals – some even outside the province – He said a very important factor is finding what is needed versus what is available versus the demands of homeowners.
Another point to consider is the coordination of logistics, because sometimes it happened that they left "planted" who would help in the transfer or even the freight, because any breach generates an additional emotional demand.
“For research, you should try not to see too many places, because it's counterproductive. The decision makes you difficult. I often make a list of what I find, discarding information based on the criteria I find most relevant, ” advised.
And he added: "I usually have a prior idea of how the market should know when I find something worthwhile."
According to Fiorella, in his last move, he saw only two places, leaving the last. “It's always important to have a plan B and C, if possible, and to have money available. Things are fixed with string, always in such cases, ”he said.
Meanwhile, Morales said the best thing to do is to organize everything so that objects can be transferred as quickly as possible. Another good idea for him is to separate things by sectors.
“It is better to bring the kitchen, the fridge and the washing machine first. Stack everything by sectors. The clothes in one box, the kitchen stuff in another. And so. Also identify what is fragile, ”said the freighter.
Finally, psychologist Dina Federman clarified that it is very important to work on the previous one on emotional intelligence. "It helps mitigate conflict with a person or yourself," he said.
Finally, he recommended writing down those emotions that you want to put away to "cool" them. “In an addiction or with a self-help group, it is written on paper every time it falls. Because the record by capturing it on paper helps keep the emotion away, ”said the professional.
Reduce the most wanted times
Daniel Sara, from a moving company, He explained that he didn't have to deal with stressed customers because, usually, when they look for furniture, the worst is over. “You already have the fait accompli. And they are predisposed to move, ”he said.
Anyway, he noted that they see a trend shift from the middle class, because before, when they moved, they left all the work in the hands of those in charge, but now they intervene trying to help as much as possible.
“The middle class is more economically limited. Before we leave everything in charge, now they want to postpone as little time as possible. Now what they are asking is to move the combo, that is, make two move in one trip, ”said Sara.
Finally, he pointed out that another trend is for people to move everything "boy" (everything that fits in the car) and make it heavier for freight transfers.. "People are more stressed about taking care of money," he closed.
-To be clear about each one's needs contrast them with available properties and owners' requirements.
-Coordinate the logistics in advance to avoid unforeseen events. Occasionally those who volunteered to assist with the move may not attend or the shipping service may take time, causing additional stress.
-Don't look too many places, as this makes the decision difficult and difficult. Make a list of the most relevant criteria and review how the real estate market should know all the options and be able to recognize when you are facing the right property.
