Whether this is seen as a trivial/first-world-problem or legitimate problem I'd like some advice: I didn't think to take off any time before my new job - I finish on Friday and start a new job on Monday, whilst moving to a new (unfurnished) place which will require setting up.
This is my first job change in quite a while so I did not think of editing the start date beyond my month's notice. All of my colleagues say they would've recommended a 1-2 month gap. I am halfway through my notice and strongly presume it is too late to bump the start date forward without a bad first impression.
It's turned this transition into more of a stress-maximum than an optimistic readjustment. Is there any advisable way to deal with this, or is it just a matter of getting on with it?
There is a similar question regarding a new job in the same company, this is a new company and I think I could've done with a break (I live in the UK).
