Moving is hard. In surveys, people rank relocation as more stressful than getting divorced, starting a new job, or planning a wedding. The anxiety, loneliness, doubt, disorientation, and emotional overload that you, your clients or employees are feeling is normal. I’ve experienced both relatively easy and very challenging took-4-years-to-call-this-place-home relocation experiences and learned a lot working through my emotions and challenges. Because relocation is challenging, I’ve made it my mission to help you and many others moving each year and created a relocation guide, Relocation Recovery.
Melody Warnick, author of This is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are, and I collaborated to create Relocation Recovery. It is an online relocation course that will guide you through post-relocation with more joy and less pain. We both moved multiple times. And after discovering there aren’t a lot of resources available, we’re determined to help others create much better relocation experiences with this online relocation guide.
Relocation Recovery will help you:
- Feel encouraged and supported as you acclimate to your new place
- Gain the tools to process negative emotions (grief, stress, fear) and start feeling how you want to feel (joyful, calm, a sense of thriving, connected)
- Confidently work through relocation-related tasks and create a comforting home base
- Be in a better mindset to help your family adjust to a new home, routines and more
- Challenge yourself to make friends and put down roots
- Be inspired to make small behavior changes that will help you connect more easily
Taking Relocation Recovery is a proactive way to feel more settled, more in control, and more content in a new community.
Melody and I know from experience the ordeal that the first 6 months to a year (or two … or three) after a move can be. So, we combined research, client feedback and experience to make it possible for you to be able to work through this relocation course, in the midst of post-move chaos, by making Relocation Recovery:
Condensed. It’s important to keep moving forward, so we created 5 sections with shorter units.
Self-paced. The relocation process is unpredictable and different for everyone. The last thing we want is for anyone to feel like they can’t keep up.
Fun. Moving is an opportunity to experience living in a new, different place. And even though relocation is overwhelming, loving where you live is crucial. The process should also be a wonderful, enjoyable and FUN.
Affordable. Relocation support was not in my budget. Our moves came with either a small relocation package or none at all. So, being able to reach and help as many people as possible is our priority.
By working through your emotions and challenges in this course and taking steps to feel attached and connected to your new place, you’ll be able to create a much less stressful and more joyful relocation. To enroll, go to Relocation Recovery.
