The Toll of Moving

Moving, family illness and changing jobs rank among our top ten psychological life stressors. So when all three hit requiring me to transplant my company 300 kilometers away, I knew there’d be a personal and professional cost.

At times this normally collected writer/media consultant morphed into a frenzied post-move mess. But three months later, I can say I’ve landed on my feet with some appreciation of the strengths it took to get me from there to here – literally and figuratively.

Make. Work. Better.
