Stretch Your Way to an Easier Move

Moving your things into a storage unit in Mountain View, CA requires some physical activity, and you might have to move objects that weigh more than you do. If this is the case, using the proper technique will help protect you from injuries. You can also reduce your risk for physical injuries in general by taking care of your body and staying in shape. Even simple stretching exercises can go a long way, so keep reading and stretch your way to an easier move.

If you want to make your move quick, easy, and comfortable, don’t forget to stretch before you get started. Your arms, back, and legs are the main players, give them the most attention. Air squats are a lot like the lifting action that you’ll be performing, and it gives you a good idea of what your posture should be like if you want to protect your back. Stretch out your lower back so you don’t develop pain that shows up after the move is done. Stay committed to stretching every hour or two throughout the day, and hold each stretch for about 30 seconds. For extra comfort, get a massage to heal up after the move.
