When moving, the focus tends to be on how to best pack and move your possessions. However, your own physical comfort is just as important. After all, if you are too cold and wind up sick, your move will be much more difficult. While winter comes with benefits, such as better availability of moving companies with the slower volume of moves, but it also comes with challenges in staying warm and healthy.

It also helps to be able to take a layer off easily when you overheat, and be able to quickly put the layer back on when you become cold.

Warm Beverages

Having something warm to drink can go a long way in staying on top of keeping warm while moving during cold months. Packing your coffee maker last can be a good way to ensure you have warm beverages on hand. If that is not practical, slow cookers have successfully been used to keep ciders and other hot drinks warm.
