Use a high density foam gardening knee pad to kneel on

Use a small gardening stool to sit on rather than standing and bending forwards

Only lift a small amount at a time. Make a few trips if necessary or use a wheelbarrow or get help

Don’t remain bent forward for too long – every 10 minutes, stretch your shoulder blades ┬áback

Keep gardening tools close to you so you do not have to stretch too far to reach them

Take frequent breaks! Don’t garden non-stop for extended periods of time–rather just a little at a time

Enjoy being close to nature! Its a great stress reliever !
