As we enter the spring season, remember to be careful as you start your yard-work and house cleaning. Be sure to exercise caution when working with sharp tools, and be mindful while using ladders for any reason. Falls are one of the leading causes of injury in the home.
Also remember to pace yourself as you labor over your lawn and garden. Though the weather is mild, it is still easy to over-exert yourself especially after months of inactivity during the winter. Take frequent breaks and remember to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated while you work.
