Tip: Moving in checklist
Moving has proven to be one of the most stressful experiences that a person can go through, regardless of destination. Whether you’re moving across the continent or just down the block, there are lots of stressful decisions to make and physical challenges.
Because your mind is cluttered with these stressors and the various details that go along with moving, one very important thing can often go ignored—the state of security in your new home. So before you dive into decorating, consider the following moving checklist steps to a safe and happy house.
- Change the Locks
You never know who lived in your property before you moved in. Do yourself a favor and change the locks regardless of the situation.
- Transfer or Invest in a New Security System
There’s no better way to make sure your home is secure 24/7 than installing a home security system.
- Burglar-Proof Your House by Adding Video Surveillance and Motion Sensors for Complete Security
Looking to bring a home security system that you have on your old house to your new house? Consider relocation services.
- Install Indoor and Outdoor Lighting
Don’t stand out as the “new neighbor” by being the only dim house on the street at night. Keep your family protected by making your house look occupied at all times using light automation.
- Keep Your Outside Area in Excellent Condition
Did you know burglars see the exterior of your property as a bullseye? If your lawn is unkempt or you have large shrubbery—burglars will see that as invitation to break in.
- Have the Old System Checked Out
Is there already a home security system in the house? Make sure you have it properly looked over and reactivated.
- Talk with the Neighbors
Having trusted neighbors can immediately make living in a new place much safer. They may be able to help keep your house look occupied while you’re away by simply picking up the newspapers, shoveling your walkway, etc.
- Remind Your Kids to be Cautious
Moving to a new neighborhood means lots of unfamiliar faces for you and your family. Make sure your children are aware that they should never let a stranger into the house, leave the garage door up when they come in, or go exploring too far until you are more familiar with the area.
Tip: Flue Season is coming soon
“Flu season deaths top 80,000 last year” read the headline that caught my eye last week. Last year was the deadliest flu season since 1976, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, with 80,000 Americans dying from the flu and flu complications during the winter of 2017-2018.
It was an unusual flu season for other reasons too, according to the CDC. We had a record-breaking 900,000 hospitalizations due to the flu, and we had three weeks during which the entire country was affected by the flu at a high level as compared to the usual region-by-region activity of the virus.
Why was the flu season so bad?
Why was it such a deadly flu season? According to one source, the flu season was so bad for a combination of reasons:
- The flu vaccine used was less effective.
- The strains of flu were stronger and deadlier.
- The number of sick people who passed along the flu to others was higher.
Although we can use hindsight to see why last year was so deadly, we can’t know what the next flu season will bring, so we must be prepared, to keep ourselves and our loved ones protected.
The flu can hurt us financially too
As we’ve written before, the consequences of the flu go beyond being sick or even hospitalized. Many of us are also negatively impacted when kids miss school and parents must stay home from work to care for them. Many of those parents are staying home without pay. And when you’re talking about millions of school days missed and 22% of those days uncompensated for the parents who had to take time off either to care for their children or because they were sick, you can see a huge financial impact due to the flu.
What can you do to prepare for this year’s flu season?
Experts say to assume this year’s flu season will be as bad as last year’s, and they recommend getting a flu vaccine by the end of October. However, getting a flu shot does not mean you won’t get the flu. So in addition to getting your flu shot, you should also follow this advice to minimize your risk:
- Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently.
- Get plenty of sleep, eat healthy, and take good care of yourself. This strengthens your immune system. (Plus it’s plain old commonsense for healthy living!)
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. The flu virus can survive 24 hours on hard surfaces and you won’t know if someone sick has touched that gas pump handle or ATM machine before you got there.
Also go to the CDC website to learn more about the flu vaccine and prevention.
To read about all those deaths from an illness we consider to be a “normal” one is heartbreaking. Let’s try to prevent another deadly year as we take steps to protect ourselves knowing a new flu season is coming.
