It says something when ‘moving to a new house’ is considered to be third on the list of most stressful life events after divorce and bereavement. How can this be? Seeing it in black and white almost makes it seem like a farce in comparison with the preceding life events in the list, and not even on the same scale.
However, if you look at the definition of stress though, you can see why: stress is a condition or experience of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances. In other words, stress occurs when you feel like you have no control. Yes, moving to a new house ticks that box.
The reasons for moving to a new house are varied, and usually involves more than just a change of address. Whether it’s the birth of a new addition to your growing family, a bereavement, a divorce or relocating for a new job, something has changed to prompt you to move; it is these additional causes of pressure that increase feelings of stress.
If you’ve got as far as having a moving date, you will more than likely have come up against other challenges in the journey to completion: mortgage applications, finding the deposit for your new house, legal queries and late-night discussions about which area to move to. So it makes sense to take control of the things that you can.
