8 Tips To Stay Healthy During A Relocation

Posted by on Feb 9 | 2017

The process of relocating can be stressful, both mentally and physically. This can be further compounded if you have children who are relocating alongside you. Even after you arrive to your new location, stress can continue as you try to navigate your new home. However, staying healthy can mitigate these effects. With that in mind, here are eight tips that you can implement in order to stay as healthy as possible during your relocation.

Health Relocation Tips

Before You Relocate:

  1. Have a moving company do it for you

    Packing and arranging proper documentation can be physically and mentally daunting. Hire a professional moving company to take care of it for you.

  2. Schedule a checkup before you leave

    It can typically take some time to find a new doctor in a new location. In order to give yourself more time, schedule a check-up shortly before you leave to ensure that you are healthy.

  3. Have all of your medical documents in order

    You never know what kind of situation can arise either during the move or once you arrive. Always keep your medical documents easily accessible.

Once You Relocate:

  1. Do your research

    Figure out the locations of grocery stores and restaurants specializing in healthy food options. There are many great apps out there that will be able to help you.

  2. Stock your fridge and pantry with healthy food

    Although you will be busy, one of the most important things you can do is to prioritize your health. This means taking time out of your day to stock your fridge and pantry with healthy food. Avoid the temptation to eat out. Takeaway will ultimately leave you feeling tired. If you can find the time, it can also be a good idea to spend time meal prepping as soon as possible. This will give you time to focus on all of the other things that are part of the moving process.

  3. Practice mindfulness

    Taking 5 or 10 minutes when things get stressful to listen to your breathing, or to simply sit in silence, can help you to reduce stress levels and promote well-being.

  4. Schedule short bursts of exercise

    Although exercising will most likely feel like the last thing you want to do during a relocation, even taking 15 to 20 minutes to go for a short walk can help to improve your stress levels, increase energy and give you a breath of fresh air. Even better, you will get to know your new home.

  5. Locate fitness classes

    Once you get settled in, another great way to stay healthy is to go to a fitness class. You will also likely find like minded people there, too!
