Dealing With Work On Moving Day
Moving day is such a big day. However, it may coincide with a working day yet you are expected to continue with business as usual. While hiring professional movers to handle your request is a great way to go, anxiety can really get the best of you. This will in turn affect your performance at work. Therefore, how can you deal with work on moving day? The following are some tips:
Commit enough time to work
It is understandable that you may be mentally pre-occupied with your move and would like to have everything run smoothly. However, it is only ethical that you give your work your all, each and every day. In case you have family members supervising the move, you can take it easy and work as you check in on the progress via calls. However, if you feel that you should be there to supervise the move, do request for half a day off so that you can be productive while in the office then step out to handle your move.

Handle each task as required
While at work, do what is expected from you and deliver it in good time. Keep a list of your to-dos that relate to both your work and the move so that you may be able to plan for your day and prepare everything that is needed for the activities’ success. Handle each task separately to avoid inaccuracy and mix-ups.
Take care of yourself
Moving and working on the same day may take a toll on your health. This can either be physical, mental or emotional. Get enough sleep and rest. Take some time to unwind. You can also exercise if you usually do so to ensure that you will have enough energy to face the day and to stay productive. Get some peace of mind too so that you may be able to focus on whatever task you may have at hand.
Delegate duties where possible
Having to work on the day of your move can be quite challenging. You may get overwhelmed by the number of tasks to be completed and errands to be run on that same day. However, you do not necessarily have to be the one to do it all. You can delegate some duties to your trusted friend or family member. Such duties include following up with the moving company, supervising the move and payment of the movers. If you are lucky enough to hold a managerial role at work and have subordinates that you can delegate duties to, you can pass over some manageable tasks to them so that you may free yourself up a bit.
Working on moving-day may seem like a hard task. However, it is possible to achieve success for both sides. If you plan and prepare well, you will be able to be productive at work and still oversee a successful move. Give your all in both areas so that nothing may go wrong.
