Between holiday food and traveling, gearing up for Thanksgiving all the way until the new year can leave you battling your self-control. It is difficult for anyone to keep their health and fitness routine in check during the holiday season. Sticking to your fitness plan from before Thanksgiving can help you stay in routine. Here are some tips from your Atlanta movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage to stay in shape during the holidays.

1.Daily exercise. Trying to incorporate some type of exercise into your regular routine is crucial. Even if your day is packed, make sure to at least stretch or work in some yoga to your day. Keep that body active!

2. Keep your family moving. Keeping the whole family active will benefit everyone. Try to go on some walks or hikes on a regular basis this season. Getting the whole family involved is motivational for everyone. Even one big activity a week instead of a movie will balance out some of your holiday indulgences.

3. Sign up for a race. Signing up for a race, whether it is a 5K or a full marathon, will keep you in shape and motivated to exercise every day. Sometimes people need something to work towards in order to stay motivated, and Atlanta movers acknowledge that there is nothing wrong with that!

4. Treat yourself. Do not over limit yourself to holiday treats. In order to stay in shape during the holidays, it is important to let yourself have that piece of pie or that second serving of carbs on your plate. Everything in moderation will keep you on track!

The ACC is the Atlantic Coast Conference, a collegiate athletic conference held each year in the United States. The ACC consists of 15 universities in the east, whose top competitors go head to head in over 25 different sports. The members of the programs within the ACC are regarded at the top collegiate competitors in the nation.

In recent years, the swimming and diving portion of the Atlantic Coast Conference has been held in Greensboro, North Carolina. The ACC hosts a flood of competitors from different universities as they show off their skills, including diving and relay swimming. Atlanta Movers at All My Sons report that officials with the ACC have recently announced a last minute change of plans. The ACC Swimming and Diving Championship will now take place on different dates at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center in Atlanta.

This change in events was made in consideration of the controversy amongst lawmakers surrounding the House Bill 2, the bathroom bill, which addresses the issue of individuals using public restrooms that correspond with their identified gender. The law passed in North Carolina requires bathrooms in government facilities to be used by people based on their gender listed on their birth certificate, and prohibits local governments from enacting nondiscrimination laws. North Carolina’s LGBT community believes the legislature of North Carolina is encouraging discrimination.

Due to the controversy in North Carolina, the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center will have the honors of hosting the ACC Swimming and Diving Championships this season.  The Georgia Tech Aquatic Center expects many competitors with many spectators, as this is not their first time hosting a championship.

Before you choose a facility of storage units in Atlanta, be sure you are getting the best possible deal by following these tips for storage units:

Where’s the Management?

Here’s one of the tips for storage units in Atlanta you may not see often, but look into the management at the storage location. Do they have a manager or representative there at all times, during business hours? Are they easy to get into contact with but phone or email? Storage units in Atlanta should have employees available to help their clients and if they are too difficult to get a hold of, consider going somewhere else.

Climate Control

Look for storage units in Atlanta that offer a climate control option. Sure, not everything you store is going to need climate control but it’s always a good idea to keep your belongings in climate control because the muggy summers in Atlanta are known for humidity. Get a climate controlled storage unit if you don’t want prolonged exposure and moisture to ruin items that you specifically stored because they are important to you.

Invest

Sure, you may just be looking for storage units in Atlanta has a temporary solution or to store belongings while you move to Atlanta, but just because its temporary doesn’t mean you don’t have to invest a little. You can pick up a few clear plastic bins to keep items in. They are durable, they keep out the elements, they are cheap when bought in bulk and you can see what’s inside them! Clear plastic bins are a much better option that cardboard boxes, especially if you don’t get a climate controlled storage unit.

Wrap Clothing

Of all the tips for storage units, this one is most often ignored. Even if you had no intention of storing clothing in your unit, eventually clothes will make their way into your storage units. Be sure to wrap or seal your clothes to ensure they are not damaged in your unit.


Atlanta neighborhoods are buzzing with the attention from main stream media this month. The FX show Atlanta, written, directed and starring Community’s Donald Glover, is a huge hit. But that’s not the only reason you should call an Atlanta moving company and make your way to our great city. Though a show like that does wonders for the city’s public image, it’s the investment that city officials are making that is going to chance the city forever.

Atlanta is going to invest $300 million into a water management project that will see a massive reservoir built to store water from the Chattahoochee River as well as a 300-acre park that will be the largest in the city. So why is this so important? The simple answer is that projects like this cause growth. Atlanta neighborhoods benefit from access to better water and less droughts lead to an improved quality of life, which in turn leads to more residents moving to Atlanta and then more commercial movers bringing business. A snowball affect.

Studies have shown that larger cities with greater populations have an increased minimum wage, increased quality and quantity of amenities and a greater productivity. This growth will affect all industries: from the local Atlanta moving company to the city hospital; it will be felt across the entire city.

Atlanta neighborhoods also have the added bonus of joining the ranks of major cities like New York, Denver and Chicago who are known for having the best water supply in the U.S. Major infrastructure projects like this have proven to have long lasting effects on cities and speculators say that Atlanta will experience a massive boost in growth because of this water project.

It’s great to see the city of Atlanta growing and changing and All My Sons Moving & Storage is proud to be a part of the ‘ATL’!
