How to Avoid Getting Sick During Your Move

July 18, 2022

Staying healthy is always the goal but staying healthy during a move is even more important. Who wants to pause every five minutes while packing to blow their nose? No one. Keep your family healthy in the lead-up to your move to avoid additional stress during an already stressful time. Wheaton World Wide Moving wants to help. We gathered these tips and tricks to help you stay healthy and be on your A-game during your move!


Staying hydrated is important for your body to function. Water is essential to any human body, so give your body what it needs. If you stay hydrated, you are guaranteed to boost your immune system. You may even be able to see a difference in your energy levels. Water is fuel that allows your body to function at its best. Staying hydrated also helps with stress and will ensure that your body is ready to adapt to your new environment!

Wash Your Hands Regularly

Washing your hands is the single-most effective thing you can do to keep healthy. To ensure that you are going to be healthy for your move, reduce the chances of potentially getting sick. Have hand sanitizer accessible to make sure you have clean hands on the go. You never know what bacteria lies on some of your old stuff as well, so wash your hands regularly to make sure you kill those pesky germs!

Keep a First Aid Kit Handy

Moving can be dangerous! You may be moving around objects that are heavy or even cutting yourself on one of the boxes. The last thing you need is to be injured during your move. Having a first aid kit will take care of any of the little injuries that might happen during your move. Be sure you have antiseptic wipes to clean off any cuts or scrapes and bandages to keep your injuries clean – that way they won’t get infected and create more issues later.

Get an Air Purifier

Make sure what you breath in is clean. If you have an air purifier you will have clean air while people are going in and out of your house repeatedly. In fact, put that purifier in your shopping cart as soon as you decide to sell your house, since you know others will constantly be visiting for repair work and showings. Say goodbye to bacteria! Your immune system will thank you.

Eat Fruits and Vegetables

Eating fruits and vegetables will help your immune system fight off any potential viruses or infections. Your immune system will be your best friend during this time, so replenish and strengthen it. Food is fuel, especially nutritious food, so eat healthy throughout the moving process. It’s easy to fall back on fast food during stressful times when you’ve potentially already packed your slow cooker, pots and pans, so plan ahead.

Using these tips and tricks will ensure that you are going to be at your best for your move. Fuel your body and give it what it needs for energy to keep up with your move. You can also fuel your move by hiring professional movers. Wheaton World Wide Moving is standing by, ready to take over the hard part of your move. Contact us today to get started.
