Fall Yard Work

Happy fall ya’ll.

If you are raking leaves to compost remember to not over rotate (twist) your back and use short strokes. If you get tired take a quick break, rotate your hips in circles and start again when you feel ready. Be weary of staying in awkward positions or rotating and lifting heavy objects at the same time.

If you are raking up leaves to make a pile and jump in them. Be weary of large rocks, sticks or other objects that might be hidden in that leaf pile before falling back. Leave the stunts to professionals.
