Fall is almost here, but for many of us, especially in the South, temperatures are still reaching the 90s! Moving can be tiresome. Add high heat and humidity, and you’re looking a potentially dangerous situation. Check out these tips from Motivated Movers to stay safe during your summer move.
Plan for a Long Day
In high heat, it can often take a little longer to get things moved into your new home. Expect your movers, friends, and family to take breaks frequently. In fact, encouraging frequent breaks is important! You don’t want your crew to get too tired. Work at a steady pace, and stay hydrated.
Keep Cool and Stay Hydrated
If you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated! Drink water frequently before you start to feel thirsty. Water is the best way to go, as drinks with too much sugar or caffeine can actually make you more thirsty.
Find some sweat-resistant or breezy cotton clothes to keep you cool during your move. Make sure, however, that you wear closed-toed shoes. Sandals and flip flops leave your toes exposed to injury. Keep water and sunscreen on hand for the whole crew, and you’ll be good to go!
Because moving can be such a physically strenuous process, it is important to be aware of your energy level throughout the day. Add summer heat to the situation, and you may find yourself exhausted before lunch rolls around. To keep your energy steady, stay on top of the process. Keep organized by making a list and following it carefully. Not only will you reduce stress, you will also be more efficient.
