In the northern hemisphere, it is now time to plant your garden!
Yesterday was the day my son and my mom got their gardens planted.
It is great when you are young and healthy with no back problems, but over time, when you have used yourself improperly for a long period of time, you may find some pain and strain after gardening!
A great thing to do is stand tall, bend over and walk your hands down so each hand is just above your knees, eg, right hand above right knee, left hand above left knee.
In this position, start to round your spine to look toward your belly button, then arch your back and look in front as you stick out your belly and your tail bone.
Repeat this 5 – 8 times!
This just might be the thing that lets you garden longer with less back pain and strain!
