Welcome back to McGuire Moving & Storage news! February is American Heart Month, and we hope that all of our valued St Louis movers are in good health. In this issue, we’d like to discuss some great ways to stay healthy and happy at the close of the winter. We understand that it’s easy to go through cycles of feeling sluggish or lazy, but we also know that moving to a new place offers the opportunity to form new habits and new hobbies. Take a moment to think about what kinds of habits you are pursuing and if they are working for you.
Get outside – Spring is right around the corner. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like, the sun is getting stronger each day. Go soak up some of that vitamin D! Take a walk with the family, or plan a weekend trip for the spring. Springtime is the best time of year to go camping, biking, or hiking. If you like any of those activities, take advantage of the season. If not, find something else that you can do outdoors.
Organize your kitchen – Whether you’ve just moved, are planning on moving, or just want to do some spring cleaning, see what kinds of things you have stashed away in your cabinets, is it nutritious? Plan some healthy meals for the week. Keep your body strong by eating foods that are scientifically proven to be beneficial for your heart, such as oatmeal and salmon.
Check in with your doctor. If you’re new in town, look up the different health resources that are available to you on the internet or through your local community center. Do you need to find a new family doctor? Are you thinking about joining an exercise or yoga class but don’t know where to go? Do some research on places to go for healthcare and well-being in your new area. If you haven’t moved recently, it may still be a good idea to schedule a physical if you haven’t had one recently and always a good time to discover a new healthy hobby.
We value each and every one of our St Louis movers. Finish out the winter strong, and check in with yourself and your family about health. The American Heart Association is a great resource if you want to learn more about healthy habits to keep your heart strong.
Good Health and Happiness,
McGuire Moving & Storage, Your Trusted St Louis Movers
