What is the Post-Moving Fatigue And What Causes It?

After all the wrapping, packing and loading, you have finally arrived at your new home. Instead of kicking back and resting for a while, you tell yourself that you have to unpack fast so your life can go back to normal. So you get to work and start undoing all those boxes on the floor and organizing the new house until it starts to actually look like a house. Just when you have reached that point of almost perfect, it happens; your body crushes. You can’t move, you can’t eat, your muscles hurt like hell and all you want to do is sleep all day and all night. This is what post-moving fatigue looks like. For those who don’t know, here are some causes of post-moving fatigue.

Emotional baggage

People don’t realize how emotionally attached you can get to a house, clothes and even insignificant items. The thing about moving is that you are forced to give up a lot of things cold-turkey including your home. After going through the stressful purging step to reduce your items, you now have to leave your precious home behind, leave your friends, leave your church. The emotional turmoil and separation anxiety can really take a toll on your body especially when it finally hits you that you have officially moved.


There is a lot that has to be done before, during and even after a move. The process of moving begins weeks or months in advance where you start by looking for a house, getting your finances in order all the way to signing on the dotted corner. After that you have to find a reliable mover, change utilities, clean, buy packing supplies, pack, move and unpack. All these things are happening besides you actual job and raising your family. No matter how strong a person is, if you overwork for an extended period of time, your body will eventually give out.

Post Moving Fatigue

Lack of enough sleep

The truth is, when you set your mind to the process of moving, sleeping becomes a rare occurrence. It is no surprise to wake up in the middle of the night to plan and sleep very late taking care of stuff. Unfortunately the body needs to recharge for 8 hours every day and failure to do that continually eventually catches up with you.


Stress is the major cause of fatigue in many situations and there are few things that are more stressful than moving. Despite everything you have to deal with during the moving process, you have to then adjust your brain to a new environment. You have to start being conscious about everything in the house while you did things on auto-pilot mode in the old house. Since there is a direct correlation between how you feel and the state of the mind, you are bound to feel the effects of stress physically especially if it goes on for long.

In a nutshell, moving is emotional, expensive and exhausting and this is not a good combination. Even though you may want to get everything done as soon as possible, it is recommended that you take enough time to rest and eat well every day and especially on the moving day so the body and mind can recharge.

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.
