Know How Long Does Post-moving Fatigue Last

After you have spent so much time working on the moving process and feeling exhausted all the time, it can feel as if you will be fatigued forever. In fact, some people claim that they felt tired for a whole year after the move. After moving you then have to face up to the fact that very many boxes (up to even hundreds of them) are waiting for you to unpack and organize the items in the house. So, how long does post-moving fatigue last?

Factors that determine how fast you recover from fatigue

  • Extent of the fatigue. Depending on when you first felt the effects of moving tiredness, there are different stages. Some people ignore their bodies' signals of exhaustion and keep going until they collapse. The longer you ignore your body's needs and treat it poorly, the more damage you'll do. People who recognize the warning signals early and stop the progression of their illness usually feel well after a few days of rest and a healthy diet.
  • How well you rest. The best solution to fatigue is enough rest and sleep so the body can repair itself and go back to normal. How fast you recover from fatigue depends on how much rest you are getting. While some people stop the unpacking and cleaning, they have to continue going to work and taking care of the family meaning they still don’t rest. It’s hard to recover quickly in such a situation. However, someone who takes some time off work and asks for help with the kids and house chores to get complete rest is able to recover in record time.

  • Your diet. A great diet is key to repairing and replenishing the body after moving. What you are eating and your eating habits will greatly affect the time your body takes to go back to normal. The rule of thumb is to stay away from fatty, processed and sugary foods. Instead, indulge in foods that have life and plenty of supplements and water. With such a diet and eating three to four times a day, it shouldn’t take long to recover.
  • The environment. How conducive for recovery is the environment you are in? While you may not have finished unpacking and organizing, experts say that living in a messy crowded place will stress you out. Try to get someone to finish the job for you so you can have the peaceful, clutter-free environment you need to recover. Alternatively, go out and check into a hotel for a few days so you can just relax and sleep.
  • How you deal with stress. If you have found positive ways to deal with stress and the emotional turmoil of moving, you will recover faster. The best thing is to get out there and explore the neighborhood, accept social invites and do things that make you happy. Focus on the positives instead of the negatives and get plenty of help.
Deal With Stress

Ideally, if you are taking care of yourself, post-moving fatigue shouldn’t last more than a week tops after the move. With enough rest, good diet and a positive mentality, you can be up and running in a few days.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
