IΒ recentlyΒ moved houses. I had stayed in my former place for about 11 years, so this was a big transition for me and my family. Jabari, my son, has known no other home. The first night, he hardly slept and we found him standing by his window, which he had opened, starring outside instead of sleepingπŸ₯°

Our brains are hardwired to be resistant to change. When presented with a huge change, such as moving, our body goes into β€˜fight or flight mode’.

I remember once upon a time, we had a big change at work, and we were taken through a stress level analysis. One of the questions to gauge this was whether you had moved house recently.

Choosing a new home to move into, where it will be, working out your budget, figuring out what to do with your current house, and picking a moving company are all big decisions.

As with all transitions, we have to have coping mechanisms and find ways to handle the stress that comes with them.

I love my new home and thank God for the blessing of a bigger space but I do not like moving and it took me more than 30 minutes this morning to figure out where I had put my precious jewelry πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Cheers to my transition!πŸ₯‚
