July 1st is a hectic day for many people who choose to move – Whether it is into a new home they’ve just purchased, to a location closer to work, to share a place with a partner or just to change scenery.

Moving day is, however, a day for back injuries if you are not careful! Heavy boxes, furniture, and appliances can damage your back muscles and spine if the necessary precautions are not taken to carry these heavy weights securely. Know your limit and be sensible when lifting and putting down heavy loads so you don’t strain your back. Do not hesitate to ask for help with heavier items. Remember, you’ll need a healthy back to get unpacked and to do all the necessary work in your new home!

Packing for a move is also a good opportunity to clean out your medicine cabinet. Check the expiration dates on things like medication, creams, and eye drops. Bring whatever is expired to your pharmacy for safe disposal. You’ll also get to meet your new healthcare professional!
