If you are faced with a sudden or unexpected move as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the following steps will help you achieve this quickly and successfully. Having a plan will help make this temporary move easier on yourself and your family.

Keep calm

It’s a strange time and it’s easy to panic, but it’s essential not to do this. Take a moment to assess your feelings, come to grips with your emotions, and focus on the task at hand.

Remember that media attention in times like this is always more negative and exacerbated than necessary. Find trustworthy sources of information and learn the facts, ignoring the hype – this will make it easier to cope. Staying calm also helps any children or other family members feel more at ease as well.

Prioritise your to-do list

You may have little time to pack and plan, so focus your efforts on finding a place to stay and determining your future transportation, then proceed to address issues like packing. The most important thing is that you pack essentials like medications, important documents and chargers for yourself and your family.

Constantly communicate

If you are struggling with the situation, express your feelings to a close friend or family member.

Discussing and processing your emotions prepares you mentally for what is to come, and there are plenty of professional helplines if you would rather talk to someone outside of your circle.

Embrace the change

By nature, humans are often afraid of change. You will find a much more successful outcome if you embrace it instead. Change may happen quickly, so don’t be afraid of affording yourself the time needed to adapt.

As long as you make informed decisions based on logic, not panic, you will be able to relocate with ease. The more positive you can be, the better those around you will feel, and so will you.
