5 Tips for Staying Healthy When Moving

Healthy Moving TipsWhether you are moving across town or across the country, relocation can take its toll on your health and mental well-being.  The packing and unpacking, organizing and cleaning, and physical activity involved in a move can be stressful to say the least.  So, how do you manage to stay healthy when moving?  We’ve put together a couple of tips that can help you stay as fit as possible throughout a commercial or residential move.

1 – Hit the Gym.  If you can’t make it to the gym during your move, just make sure to go for a run or take a long, brisk walk.  This will help burn off any extra calories and relieve stress.

2 – Maintain a Healthy Diet.  Don’t miss breakfast and remember to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

3 – Don’t Forget the Water.  Stay hydrated.  While you are packing, going through storage, or moving your furniture, it is easy to forget to drink water.

4 – Stay Calm.  It can be stressful watching the movers transport your belongings.  Why not make a quick phone call or do a little cleaning during this time.  Unpacking can also be intimidating.  Remember, there is no race when you move, so focus on one room at a time.

5 – Make Your Bed.  The first thing you should unpack is your bedding.  This way, you definitely have a place to kick back and relax after a hard day’s work.
