Water is important. No, it is critical for moving safely. While moving, you need to put down the soda and prepare your water bottle. You need to make sure you have a stock of water bottles. During a move, you are experiencing the same physical stress as a heavy workout. In combination with heat, this puts you at risk for dehydration. That is why you should prepare to drink at least two bottles an hour and have water available.
Dressing for success is important. Especially in moving. While you are moving, you should be wearing light-weight clothes. Breathable fabric is important as you are lifting and carrying boxes out of your house. Try to avoid wearing dark clothes that absorb heat. Instead, pick those that are white or light in coloration. However, you should not be wearing summer fun type of outfits. Make sure that you are wearing non-slip, closed toes shoes. In addition, make sure you are wearing practical clothes. Light clothes will make moving in the summer easier.
You don’t need to be on the beach to use sunscreen. You will be exposing yourself to the sun during the move. Because of this, you need to regularly apply sunscreen. You should be using it on every part of your body to protect your skin. In addition, you should be using waterproof sunscreen with at least 30 SPF.
