The Perfect Moving Day Playlist For Every Type of Move

Without a doubt, moving can be one of the most stressful experiences in life. The process of relocating to a new home means time spent planning and packing – when you would rather be doing just about anything else. We hear ya. Which is why we’re attempting to liven up your moving experience. After all, if you’re stuck inside the house with nothing but cardboard boxes and bubble wrap to keep you company, you’re going to need something to keep you from going crazy. And that “something” is your ultimate moving day playlist.

Not only will listening to the right tunes keep you entertained but it will also reduce overall moving related stress. Don’t believe me? Just ask science! According to, “the soothing power of music… can be an extremely effective stress management tool.” Research has proven time and time again that listening to music affects our brains in powerful ways. The effects include reducing blood pressure, decreasing stress hormones and slowing heart rates. Basically, listening to music while moving to a new home will help you chill the heck out. That way you can focus all of your attention on the important tasks at hand – and not on the overwhelmingly long list of things to do before you move.

So grab your speakers and take a listen to these fitting songs (below) while you pack, plan and move into your new home.
