So whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or just a regular Joe, it’s important that you take care of yourself during this transition. Below are thus quick tips on how to keep fit during your move.
Eat as healthily as possible.

There will be times when you need to even carry those heavy boxes yourself when your movers are busy handling your furnitures. So supply yourself with cleaner energy by increasing your vegetable, fibre and water intake.
Find time to do mini workouts.
It might be impossible to schedule hour-long gym sessions, but who says you can’t keep your routine? The trick steal in some exercise in between moving tasks. Spending ten to fifteen minutes on yoga, weight-lifting or brisk walking can do wonders for the mind and body. Just be sure that your previous task is completed before you disconnect and work a sweat.
Keep your organisations simple.
It’s important to organise your possessions well, but it’s even more crucial to keep the process as simple as you possibly can. Plan your boxing categories in advance (e.g. by colour, by item type, by are of storage), so that when you know where everything goes, there’s more time to plan your fitness moments during your move.
Schedule your phone calls and emails.
A fit body starts with a fit mind. Curb stress by planning out your emails in advance. Whenever possible, divert unimportant phone calls. The most important thing to do during this transitional period is to stay focused on the things you have to do and your feelings are you execute them.
Have an exercise buddy.
Whether a partner, your children or a friend, it’s always good to take a break and work out with company. The conviviality of it takes your mind off things. You can also use this personal moment as an opportunity to let them know how you feel during this transition, and how they can help. Nothing, after all, is as hard as you make it!
