movehappy.jpgFresh Living is on Beliefnet’s homepage today, with a gallery of tips for keeping a positive attitude even during the high-stress process of moving into a new home.  From the intro:

“If you’re moving, you have my simultaneous congratulations and
sympathies.  Despite the excitement of starting fresh in a new home,
the process of getting all of your stuff into that new home can be
soul-crushingly difficult.  The boxes.  The tape.  The give-away pile. 
The clothes.  The books.  The knick-knacks.

If you’re like me, during a move you find yourself launching into a
spiral of toxic, negative thinking. In this gallery, I’m offering up 5
of the most common such gems, each with their own rescue that falls
into the category of what my sister (a social worker) calls a “positive
re-frame.”

Do you recognize the negative self-talk?  Together we’ll articulate
those same thoughts in positive language that will get you back at the
boxes in no time–maybe even with a smile on your face.”

Click here for the full gallery, and please add any of your own thoughts on surviving a move in the combox!
