Depression after moving to a new place

Worried after movingChange is human nature and so is taking time to adapt to the change. While some people cope with changes easily and adapt soon others take too long and push themselves to depression state. Moving from Essex to a new place could mean so much other things than just change; it means moving away from your friends, neighbours, you’re loved places and people, your comfort zone, your memories and lot more. Now, doing them all over cannot be easy can it? It will look almost impossible at the start but then is not so actually. You will obviously not be as easy, known and strong as in your former place but then you should keep telling yourself you have to start at some point because that was what you did earlier. And all the packing, moving, unpacking and resettling things doesn’t make moving to a new place a less depressing task.

Reasons for depression after moving

How to avoid bad feelings after moving?First let’s discuss the phases we go through after moving to a new place before getting to the depression part. At first all is good. You are excited, ready to rock and confident. Then, small things don’t work out and you start comparing your last place and the new and the people there and here which you should not do at all. Comparison slowly starts making you feel bad. You take the positives of the living in Essex and negatives of living in new town, what can make you feel lonely and frustrated. And slowly you lose interest in exploring the city or meeting new people. And that’s when you start getting depressed.

How to avoid depression?

To lesser the moving blues, make sure you pack your stuffs accordingly and properly so it does not become irritating or frustrating when you move in.  Unpacking anxiety can actually be very depressing. Very important is also compare removal companies in Chelmsford, Colchester, Harlow or any other location and choose the most reliable one, to make the whole moving process as stress free as possible. If you are moving for the first time, you should also get some support from your family or friends. Even the best skilled Essex man with van team is no substitute for both physical and mental support from your loved ones.

Like said in the paragraph above don’t start at a new place by making comparisons. Keep in your mind everything takes time. Don’t start with high expectations either. And also don’t always try and be a stranger. Make efforts to blend in.

So move start with a room, set your priorities right, dust or paint the walls and floors before moving in stuffs and  also settle stuffs of one room at a time. Don’t run around panicking trying to put everything at place at once , never forget you get two hands and two feet which can break. And you can always avoid being depressed and alone by making friends. So, don’t hesitate to go knock on your neighbour’s door as for any help plausible and make friends right away.

Just be at ease and that will take huge load of having to deal with change off. Meanwhile, you can be just friendly and go around. Try to know as much of the place as to get along with the people who look like strangers now but will be friends later. If nothing is working then call  friends or family or relatives.
