The Ultimate Survival Guide for Moving House

 Moving houses always spell new beginnings. More room, a new environment, new neighbours or even new beginnings in life. It is something consequential that gives you a new opportunity to experience something new and fresh and create fresh life’s memories. However, it is the process itself which is quite hectic due to the array of challenges that you have to grapple with.

Moving is quite hectic. You have to do a lot of organising, packing, de-cluttering while taking steps to ensure all the stuff are in place and nothing is damaged during the process. If you are leading a busy professional life, it is going to eat up lots of valuable time. To save your valuable time you need to look up for reliable movers like Metro Movers who can do packing, loading and unloading tasks for you.

Moving Companies To The Rescue

Moving companies make moving bearable. They do all the heavy-lifting once you have given instructions and defined requirements. As a result, you will not have to grapple with strenuous tasks of moving heavy furniture pieces along with the appliances. However, even if you have a mover handling all your needs, then you could make the transition as painless as possible.

Here are some of our survival tips that you can incorporate when moving house.

Buy Rolls Of Toilet Paper

Well, this is a service that the moving company will not provide you. If you are moving to a new city neighbourhood, it will take a time to discover the next convenience store and there are some essential that you must have, such as a roll of toilet papers for immediate use.

Don’t Forget To Pack All Your Medication

Don’t focus too much on your belongings that you forget to pack in the medication. They can be a lifesaver; especially at a time when you are handling heightened stress and anxiety like when you are moving.

Pack Other Essential Daily Use Items In An Easily Accessible Manner

Apart from your medication, there are important items that you should pack in a convenient place where you can easily track or access them. These include relevant documents, your work laptop or even prized jewellery. You should handle anything that you regard to be of high value.

Cash

You have already paid for the moving and other essential items, but you still need a little cash for those little emergencies that will emerge when making the move. For example, there may be a need to tip the movers or taxi drivers. Most cab drivers equipped with EFTPOS terminals. Even if they don’t carry mobile terminals, they can handle cash requests and all the associated costs including last minute changes with pride and a smile. Mostly they are equipped with broad geographical knowledge of the region. In Melbourne, taxis are tailored to exacting needs of our esteemed customers. They provide luxury taxis with a capacity to carry as many as 11 passengers.

Trash Bags

In some houses, you might find these already provided for you, but you might want to carry some just in case. Having cash on hand will be useful in buying some last minute trash bags from convenience stores or the moving company itself if it provides them.

Toothbrush And Toothpaste

Do not pack these too far and deep in your items. In fact, if you didn’t negotiate for an unpacking service with the moving company, you will be doing the unpacking all by yourself which is quite hectic. Most movers will start living with the bare essentials in their new home and do the unpacking “long term” over several days or weeks so you need to access your toothbrush and toothpaste for daily use easily.

Bottled Water

You are probably not going to cook or buy new supplies until several days later so make sure that you have purchased some bottled water and light snacks to push you for the first day or few days.

Bandages

Make sure to have a full first-aid kit but a bandage will do for those little injuries that you are most likely to get when organising your new home.

Flashlight

Maybe you might not have to light on your first move day, or you simply want to lift some of the many crevices and hidden crawl spaces in the home.

What did we leave out? But this moving house survival guide should put you to a smooth start in your new home. Now onto new great memories!

How a colleague accidentally tripped me and revealed my mental issues?

The human physiology and biological functioning are no less than a wonder. Anger management comes in the domain of emotional intelligence. Although like all living organisms the major structure for the human body and biological functioning is the same, yet each is a unique combination of different characteristics. It is one of the superiority of humanity that each and every member of this regime is highly identical as well as utterly unique at the same time.

Many of you may be thinking that how being equal and unique is possible at the same time. If we look at the internal body function and biological facts the major outline or structure, upon which the average human body system is built, remains almost same for all people around the world. But when you start depicting the uniqueness, the list is endless. The genetic makeup and the pattern of characteristics for every individual is a unique set for millions of humans around the world.

This uniqueness is more like part of an individual’s personality. That is why human beings differ from one another; even the children of same parents vary with another. This is where character comes into play. Not all individuals have the same combination for every trait and with different levels of multiple features every person makes up a unique personality. There can be similarities between the two persons who rank the same on an individual level for a trait.

These facts become more important when the study subject become the humans. This is why sociologists and psychologists claim that experimenting in humans is the most difficult of all. It is because based on their intelligence, wisdom, experience and internal feedback systems humans have the capacity to alter and change their responses, for the same stimuli. The answers may vary depending upon the analysis of the surrounding. The phenomenon if personality is widely being considered in the area of human resource management. It is because every organisation is thriving to achieve the best possible talent for it. In this quest, they want to analyse each and every individual of their team to possess the best possible traits, which can not only affect the organisation’s growth but will also help the person to grow emotionally and mentally. It is because the well-being of employees is ultimately depicted in the balance sheet figures of a person. I came to know about all this while I was reading a human resource blog. But how my interest developed in reading this material. It is after a diagnostic incident which made me rise that I need a through working on my personality and behaviour. Its importance becomes twofold when you are working in a large company and especially on group projects.

A few months back our company audit was in progress. Everyone in the office was quite busy, or you can say fatigued. The review team was asking for records and files, and everybody was dead busy. I was working on my system when one of my colleagues in a rush to open the cupboard got tripped over me. I was having a coffee cup by my side, and it all spilt over my table.

Although he was not intentional in doing so yet, I became too furious. My voice crossed the limits and all of the colleagues gathered. My manager came, with whom there was a team member of the audit committee. They handled the situation and calmed me down. After few minutes of this incident when I sat again on my personal computer I felt embarrassed. I surely overreacted. Although it was not his fault yet he was apologising and should not have yelled at him. But then I realised that the stress of audit along with work pressure mixed up to make me behave in this way. My anger crossed the limit, and there came a stage where I let it spill out as it is. I was unable to “manage” myself.

The audit committee penned certain amendments as well improvements. The HR head suggested for an anger management at workplace caring for r all those who are believed to be angrier at work. For me and many other it seemed insulting in the start, but again we realised that we were unable to “manage” our anger. Anger is a temporary state of mind in which a person became furious. Their reaction to this mental state can be in the form of the scream, loud voice or even beating. All these are unacceptable behaviours at work. But these are the realities of human nature which the experts of human resource management have accepted. Now the modern notion of anger management state that anger is a temporary phase of mind and people can be made to deal with this state of mind through different drills and activities. Anger is not a trait; it is just the absence of control. But the human body is based on the excellent ability of flexibility so people can be easily made to manage this state if mind.

It is a trait of an individual who can understand and depict one’s emotions, moods, and feelings. Managing the emotions is an essential part needed at the workplace. It is because a single employee will be involved with so many other people around that his behaviours can affect others. I have also undergone through the whole practice of anger management, and now after just a few months I feel much improvement. Not only me, but my colleagues have also mentioned this visible change.

Anger management must be taken as an essential tool for humans because they are social creatures. None of us can live in isolation. We cannot leave those alone, who become angry too quick. All we can do is to manage this through effective anger management.
