Start with a plan

Going into packing without a plan of action is essentially asking for trouble. Before starting the packing process, you should take an inventory of our belongings and decide what you should keep, sell, or get rid of. From there you can determine which rooms and items you can pack first.

Add some background noise

Having something to keep you distracted can help make your packing seem less like a chore. Putting your show or album on in the background can help you get into the groove of packing. Just make sure you’re not getting so distracted by what’s going on in the background that you neglect packing.

Reward yourself

A great way to motivate yourself to pack is to set accomplishable goals and reward yourself after those goals. You can think of each box or room you pack as a task, and reward yourself accordingly. The reward can be a short walk or a snack. Just remember to keep rewards short so you can focus on the task at hand.
