22 - Consider providing some snacks and drinks throughout the day for those who are helping you, be they moving, friends or loved ones. Everyone appreciates a cold drink on a hot summer day!
23 - Use the appropriate equipment and movement technique when lifting heavy objects, bend your knees and keep your back straight up. You don't want to throw your back. Gloves with grip are also very useful.
