What’s better than the long awaited Montana spring? Getting out and enjoying it! But before you start thinking about cleaning the whole house, sprucing up the yard or hitting the golf course, Juro’s Pharmacy Health and Wellnesshas a few ideas to keep you safe this spring.
If you have been sitting most of the winter, your body probably isn’t ready to just tackle the big projects. There are several simple ways to prevent injuries when you’re enjoying spring.
- Take a walk. Walking is a great way to get your body warmed up and loosened up before your tasks. Don’t overdo it; you may want to walk after your chores too as a cool down.
- Warm up stretches are a simple and essential step to a busy day. Stretching is a way to prepare the body to use the muscle groups that may be a bit “underused” all winter. Take a look at these stretching techniques from Function Fitness Facts. Again, go easy on them.
- Eat a light meal before your start your projects. Avoid big meals that may weigh you down, just enough to give your body fuel. Save the big meal or restaurant as a reward for a job well-done.
- Stay hydrated. Keep water with you or close by and avoid too much alcohol on the golf course. Consider a sports drink to replenish your system and prevent cramps. Dry muscles are sore muscles and that goes for your brain too, so stay hydrated.
