How to Minimize Stress as a Seller
Posted November 29th, 2016 by Clarissa Gregg

There’s no doubt about it, selling a home can be a very stressful time. Despite the high levels of stress that selling your home can bring up, there are several things you can do to help yourself relax and face the challenges of your home sale with a level head.
1. Preparation is key. The more prepared you can be in advance, the easier selling your home will be. Making sure that you are on the same page with your spouse, child, or whoever else will be helping you sell your home is crucial to the success of your home sale. Excellent communication with your real estate agent and Real Estate Counselor is also extremely important. Preparing by downsizing can also be effective as you prepare to move to your new home.
2. Go outside. It is scientifically proven that time spent in the Great Outdoors can reduce stress. Take a walk, go to a park, or even just enjoy your own backyard. It will help you to clear your head and allow you to see things in a different light instead of making decisions based on frustrations and anxiety.
3. Meditation. If you have never tried meditation before, it is a great way to quiet your mind, focus on your breath and help you to relax. It is very easy and you don’t need any tools to do it. Just close your eyes, focus on your breathing, and relax.
4. Spend some time with pets. If you have a pet, animals have also been proven to reduce stress. Take a walk with your dog, or play with your cat. It will make them happy and will help you to take your mind off your home sale.
