Tips for Becoming an Empty Nester

Photo of empty nestersHas your child recently graduated and begun a career? As a parent, you probably have a lot of mixed feelings about becoming an empty-nester. Though this can be a challenging time, you’ve probably thought about making changes to your lifestyle already. It’s not uncommon to have plans to downsize your home or move to a new area altogether after the children are on their own. If you are making a change, you may need a moving company in Winston Salem that also offers short and long-term storage solutions. Take some of the stress out of the transition by following this and other tips for becoming an empty nester:

  1. Decide what stays and what goes. Whether you are renovating, moving, or not planning any major change at this time, this might be a good time to decide if you have belongings that you can eliminate or place in storage.
  2. Take stock and make a plan. Figure out how much space you will really need if you’re planning on moving to a new home. Or do your plans include renovating your current home? Will you be moving your belongings permanently, or temporarily storing anything while your home is transformed?
  3. Follow your plan. If you are moving because you are downsizing and/or preparing to retire, you’ll need a game plan and professional help. Steele and Vaughn offers free online move resources in addition to professional moving and storage services.
  4. Hire a moving company in Winston Salem. A moving company can load up your things, move them to the new location, and unload them, all without you having to lift a finger other than to point to where things should go. Make sure the company you hire knows how to handle special items like electronics, antiques and artwork.
  5. Relax and enjoy being an empty nester. You have more time for yourself and with your spouse. Take a trip, plan date nights, or do something you enjoy to celebrate your new situation. This will help you to stay positive and not dwell on the harder emotions that may accompany this transition.
