Moving Tips!

Fact: Moving sucks.*
‘Nother fact: Tons of people throw out their backs moving/ lifting heavy things simply because they do it incorrectly.
Bending at the hips to lift: BAD!

Bending at the knees to lift: GOOD!

Tip #1. Bend your knees, keep your chest up and your back flat. You want your hips low!
Tip #2. Use smaller boxes so you don’t overfill, making it too heavy to lift in the first place.
Tip #3. If you’re not sure or have back issues already, hire movers and let them do the work while you sip on a margarita at your new place. : )
*you’re lucky i had to move last week in order to take these awesome photos…
