Dealing With Post-moving Fatigue
Post-moving fatigue is a serious issue that happens to so many home owners across the world. Unfortunately, due to the fact that it’s not a disease, people don’t really take it seriously and so many others continue to suffer. The weeks prior to moving can be extremely stressful and the moving day is usually the day that breaks the camel’s back. While it is understandable that all those activities had to be done, you don’t have to let your body suffer any further after you have moved. Here are simple ways to deal with post-moving fatigue at home.
One of the symptoms of fatigue is craving sugary and fatty foods that continue to make your body feel weak and sluggish. The solution is to replace that junk with foods that support your adrenal glands and also boosts your energy. Aim to eat foods like turkey and chicken, wild caught fish, coconut, avocados, olives, almonds and other nuts. Pumpkin seeds, chia, flax and vitamin supplements are also great for repairing your body. Don’t forget to indulge in lots of fruits and vegetables to boost your immunity as well.
There is no better solution to fatigue than a good rest and plenty of sleep. Learn to listen to your body and sleep when you feel sleepy. You can even take a long nap during the day and make a habit of going to bed before 10pm. If you are struggling to sleep, you can try soaking in a warm bath with scented candles before bed, clearing all clutter in your room and playing some soothing music.
A huge portion of post-moving fatigue is caused by stress and emotions that come from leaving what you know and love and going into a new territory. You can start by doing exercises that deal with stress such as mindfulness, meditation and yoga. It’s also a great idea to take a long walk around your neighborhood and just familiarize yourself with the place as well as the people. Try to avoid any negative thoughts because they will turn into feelings and then actions. Instead, replace those bad thoughts with positive ones immediately and see your countenance and feelings change.

The worst thing you can do when dealing with serious fatigue is to push yourself further. If you can’t wait to finish unpacking and cleaning the house, get someone else to do that. Professional cleaners or organizers can do that job for you more efficiently and save your body from crushing. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends and relatives to come over and help you with cooking, cleaning and even the kids.
You will need even more water than usual when you are suffering from fatigue. The body is 70% water. Sufficient hydration helps with processes like blood circulation and digestion. It also has great benefits on the heart rate and mental health. Aim to drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily to keep your body hydrated and full of energy.
While post-moving fatigue isn’t a disease, it can literally keep you in bed for a week if you don’t deal with it fast. These simple tips will greatly help you recover in a short time so you can go back to your normal life.
