With the cold weather behind us, and spring right around the corner, its never been a better time to get in the garage, the laundry room or anywhere clutter has made a home during the chilly winter months. The fact is, spring cleaning is as American as apple pie, and with the first sign of sunshine, folks are more than ready to roll up their sleeves and get in there. But before jumping in head first, take a few minutes to learn a few tips and strategies for staying safe and healthy and make your hard work worthwhile. Here are three healthy ways to usher in spring cleaning while feeling great.
Exercise Caution and Know Your Limits – For many of us springtime means cleaning – deep cleaning to be more specific. That means getting out the ladders, the step stool, the hedge cutters and a variety of useful, but dangerous tools. Make sure, whether you are cleaning under the sink or on top of shelves in the garage, that you wear comfortable, close-toed shoes and take all safety precautions when using heavy machinery. Spring is a great time for getting out there and moving that body, but don’t overdo it or you will run the risk of pulling a muscle or worse, doing permanent damage.
Use Proper Technique When Lifting or Carrying – We have all heard it before, but there’s still no substitute for lifting with your legs, not your back . Avoid serious injury by using the proper form, and despite wanting to get it all done in one day, you will stay healthy. Bend at the knees and lift with your leg muscles, keeping your back as straight as possible. Always use a step ladder to reach objects on a high shelf, and never attempt to pull a box down on top of you without first making sure the contents will not drop on your head.
Use a Hot Tub to Soothe Overworked Muscles – One of the most effective ways to soothe those tired muscles and achy joints is by sitting in the hot tub, providing a well-deserved break after several hours spent cleaning and organizing, and is also a healthy lifestyle choice that can alleviate aches and pains, stiffness, decrease stress, even improve sleep. Making a soak in the hot tub a regular part of an evening wind down will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to face the morning pain-free and raring to go.
Spring is almost here and for many of us that means cleaning. This season make it a healthy and happy event by exercising caution, using proper lifting techniques and always finding time to soak away the stiffness with a warm, relaxing dip in the hot tub.
