By Brandi Goodman
The fall season has arrived, and with it comes soreness for many. Lots of the fall activities you find yourself doing can lead to pain if you're not careful. With some tips in mind, you can stop the soreness and make the most of the season instead.
During Your Fall Binge-Watching Sessions
Fall brings back many favorite shows and debuts new television viewing options. During your bingeing sessions you may find yourself feeling sore from all the sitting and slouching. It's important to sit up straight and stop yourself from hunching over so you can prevent back pain. You also need to get up and take a break every once in a while. Never sit for hours without getting up to stretch. You may even want to incorporate exercise into your binge-watching routine so you can keep your body moving and prevent further aches.
During Your Yard Work
Autumn means lots of yard work. You need to rake the leaves from your yard regularly. You need to get up to the gutters and clear them so the rain can come down without interference. You may need to put away patio furniture and start locking things down. All of these outdoor chores can lead to aches if you let them. Wear the right shoes so your feet are comfortable. Choose tools that fit your height so you aren't bending as you use them. Take a break often so you don't become overworked and fatigued. Following these tips can help to prevent the back pain often associated with lawn care.
During Your Fall Festivals and Fun Activities
Perhaps you enjoy attending fall festivals or participating in other seasonal activities. Haunted houses, corn mazes, orchards, and more are available in the fall. Enjoy these activities more by preparing yourselves for them. Wear the appropriate footwear to start. A comfortable pair of shoes will prevent your feet from aching as you walk from one activity to the other at these events. Never wear high heels or sandals that can quickly lead to pain. You also want to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
