Wear good and supportive footwear when in the yard or on uneven surfaces. Be aware of obstacles in the yard or at home when moving quickly.
Make sure your back is flat and you are bending at the hips and knees when lifting things from the ground or cleaning the floor.
Be careful when reaching forward to plant seeds, reach for an item or when cleaning a window. Maintain proper posture and try not to lurch your head too far forward.
Be mindful of your core and tighten those belly muscles when lifting, carrying items or doing any taxing activity.
Take breaks in between activity and listen to your body if you feel you are overdoing it.
Drink water! Hydration is SO important.
