With the spread of COVID-19, there is no need to reschedule your move with our residential movers in Southwest Florida. Our team has taken the preventive measures necessary to ensure we are implementing proper health and safety guidelines. Here are a few tips to help you stay sanitized during a move.
How to Become More Hygienic
You are inevitably going to experience some sort of sickness in your lifetime. Whether it’s a cold, seasonal spring allergies, or you end up becoming a carrier of coronavirus, it’s important to take the necessary actions to prevent an illness. Good personal hygiene habits promote better health. If you are looking to become more hygienic, test out these travel sanitization tips.
1. Wash your hands
One of the most important ways to stay sanitized during a move is by washing your hands consistently. Before you prepare food, after you eat a meal, when you cough or sneeze, if you’re handling garbage, and of course, after you use the restroom, make sure you are washing your hands for at least 20 seconds. Wet your hands with clean, running water, apply soap, lather your hands, and don’t forget the backs of your hands, under your nails and between your fingers. If you don’t have soap and water readily available, keep a sanitizing gel handy on the go.
2. Keep your hands away from your face
You’ll be surprised how often you touch your face in a day. Throughout the day, you most likely rub your eyes, scratch your nose, rest your hand on your chin and touch your face in other ways. You don’t realize where your hands have been before you touched your face. Fight the urge to put your fingers near your eyes, nose and mouth.
3. Disinfect communal areas
You don’t know where the person who used your bathroom has been or what they’ve touched before they open the door. It’s crucial to stay sanitized during a move by disinfecting communal areas. Use antibacterial wipes, sprays, and other cleaners to disinfect places people have touched. Pay attention to bathrooms, kitchens, toilet handles, cabinet knobs, refrigerator doors, front doors, gas pumps, and so many other places. When out in public during your upcoming move, try to disinfect areas that are densely populated.
4. Reduce your stress levels
Another excellent way to become more hygienic is by reducing your stress levels. Of course, this is easier said than done. But we suggest you get plenty of sleep and practice anxiety-reducing activities like yoga, reading or going for a walk. Stress is known to suppress your immunity, which can cause you to get sick faster and more frequently. If you are feeling stressed, take a few minutes for yourself and practice deep, slow breathing techniques.
5. Take vitamins
If you are someone who is prone to getting sick and has a weakened immune system, our movers in southwest Florida suggest loading up on vitamins and keeping a safe distance away from others. Take vitamin C, zinc, and other immune-boosting supplements like echinacea and goldenseal. Vitamin B6 and vitamin E are both powerful in helping the body fight off infections and build up immune systems.
