Break Up Your Work

Trying to unpack an entire house at once will only lead to complete chaos. Instead of viewing it as a massive chore, break up your task into manageable chunks so that you’re not faced with mountains of moving boxes to unpack at once. Unpack the essentials first: bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, etc. and save the less important rooms for later. Work at a manageable pace to avoid burnout.

Set Realistic Goals

After you’ve broken your work into manageable pieces, it’s important to set realistic goals to keep you on track and motivated during the process. These can be tasks like fully unpacking your kitchen or moving furniture into upstairs rooms. Setting realistic goals for unpacking is a great way to keep organized and avoid burning out.

Put on Background Noise

Break up tediousness by putting on background noise to break up the monotony of unpacking. Having the TV on, listening to music, podcasts can really help keep you entertained during unpacking, making the process feel a lot easier. So take this into consideration when deciding what to unpack first. 

Reward Yourself

Positive reinforcement is a great way to give yourself some extra motivation when unpacking. Taking breaks to get some important rest and relaxation is important in keeping spirits high throughout the process of unpacking. Every time a large task is checked off, make sure that you and your family take some time to do something they enjoy.
