Find out how to stay healthy during your long distance move
Staying Healthy During Your Move
Remaining healthy during your move is essential. Being relaxed, balanced and calm enhances production.
More than likely, there will be a lot to take care of prior to moving day. Therefore, make sure that everyone involved in the moving process stays healthy and spends as much attention on “down time”, as they do on getting everything prepared and finalized. This will help everyone stay on track and get things accomplished efficiently.
Eating well stabilizes blood sugar and boosts natural energy.
Planning a daily menu for the weeks leading up to moving day is a good idea. It also allows you to use ingredients in the fridge, freezer and pantry that will not be moving with you. Include snacks on your menu that can easily be prepared, or are quick to get a hold of.
Superfoods are simple, nutrient rich foods that are valuable for health and well-being. Some of the superfoods you might want to add in your meal/snack planning include:
Smoothies and natural juices are also a great source of vitamins and nutrients for a quick breakfast or snack. If it’s nearing the final stages of packing and you have already packed your blender or juicer, purchasing premade ones, or taking a well-deserved break to enjoy a freshly made smoothie, are two good options.
Your meals may also need to adjust as moving day nears, as many, or all of your cooking and kitchen instruments will have already been packed. If you will be eating out, or having take-outs, spend a bit of time researching local restaurants where you and your family can all finds foods you enjoy.
A very important factor to remember is to drink plenty of fluids and remain hydrated. Make sure there is enough water for everyone to drink regularly, especially if you are packing in hot climates.
If you have a regular exercise routine, keep it up. Don’t let the moving process consume your every minute. Provide time for yourself each day to do something that makes you feel rejuvenated. Whether it’s going to the gym, yoga, walking, or running, it’s imperative that you take time away from “the move” so that you can come back motivated and refreshed.
Don’t forget to sleep! Oftentimes, we push ourselves and keep going into the early hours. You must rest and keep up your energy levels.
Take Time Off Work
If you’re coordinating the move while still working, if possible, you should arrange to take some time off. This way, it’s probable you will achieve much more in 1 full day, then after work in the evenings when your energy levels may be lower.
Listening to music has many positive effects and can enhance your packing progress. So, put on some music, have fun, and enjoy good food with your friends and family before saying au revoir (till seeing again)!
