Summer has finally arrived, which means that peak moving season has begun. Almost 60% of total moves in America occur between the months of June-August, which are also the hottest months of the year. Keeping cool during summer moving is essential for your health and your stress levels. Below you will find some Life Hacks on how to stay cool during your summer move.
Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water every 15 to 20 minutes is essential for preventing dehydration, heat exhaustion, and muscle cramps. Water, or a sports drink with electrolytes, will give you more energy, and keep you cool throughout your move.
Dress Appropriately: Be sure to wear loose and light colored clothing. Comfortable shorts, a light colored t-shirt, and tennis shoes, is the best outfit to wear when moving. This kind of outfit allows you to move around easily and stay cool.
Take a Break: Resting once every hour is important for both your body and mind. This rest prevents muscle strain, and also allows you to gather your thoughts to ease your stress levels. Be sure to have a light snack every four hours, and drink water during your break to keep your energy levels stable.
Turn on the A/C: Make sure the air conditioner is on at both locations during your move. This gives you the ability to rest inside rather than outside in the heat.
Wear Sunscreen: Sunscreen protects your skin from damaging rays, and also keeps you cool. Choose to wear a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher for the best protection.
Hire a Moving Company: If you don’t feel like breaking a sweat during your move, call a professional moving company to do all the heavy lifting for you!
