So, you’re moving. Maybe you’re getting married or divorced, building a family, or looking for a job in a different location. You’re probably excited, nervous or even apprehensive about your coming change, but if you find the idea of moving stressful, you’re not alone. In fact, research reveals that six out of ten adults say that moving can be the most stressful event in their lives.
Other research has found that moving can increase your chance of developing a stress-related condition by 30%. Combining a move with a major life transition — such as having a baby or getting divorced (both of which are common reasons to relocate) — can increase that risk to 50%.
