Eastbourne’s Heatwave – Stay Hydrated When You’re Moving House

Removals - Stay Hydrated

Eastbourne’s Sunshine Coast has been basking in a scorching summer heatwave this year. As well as moving house, people have been flocking to the beaches to soak up the summer sun.

Fine weather is great for moving day too, but it is important to stay hydrated. The Eastbourne Removals team will, of course, ensure that your house removal is as smooth as possible. Waiting for the chain of solicitors to come back from lunch and for the banks to release the funds is stressful though, and the sun can make it worse.

Stress and hydration are related, as Amanda Carlson, RD, director of performance nutrition at Athletes’ Performance tells WebMD, “Staying in a good hydrated status can keep your stress levels down. When you don’t give your body the fluids it needs, you’re putting stress on it, and it’s going to respond to that”.

How Much Water Should I Be Drinking?

Here at Eastbourne Removals, we make sure that our guys all carry enough water to keep them going. Chill plenty of ice cold water the day before you move. Consider freezing a few bottles because the fridge is going to be turned off on the day. They say that, on average, you should drink 6-8 glasses on a normal day, so make sure that there is enough for you and the family for a hot and active day. Remember – if you are thirsty, you are dehydrated!

Also, when you’re moving house, you are going to be spending lots of time outside. It is important that you and the family stay protected from the sun. Make sure that you know where the sunscreen is, and keep applying it through the day.
