Packing is a stressful process

Moving is a tense experience. Multiple items need to be organized, packed, and loaded efficiently. Due to anxieties and distractions experienced during this time, this task is often unnecessarily difficult. Items are easily lost, forgotten, or damaged.

 

People are more likely to make mistakes when stressed.
