Shovel carefully

After this blizzard, there is going to be a lot of snow clean up which includes shoveling. The snow is extremely heavy so shovel the snow in small amounts. Take breaks in between shoveling to give your muscles a break and to warm up. The cold can really take a toll on your back by causing your muscles to tense up and cause pain so make sure to bundle up. You can protect your spine by using a lightweight shovel with a curved handle. A good posture to maintain while shoveling snow is to bend at your hips and keep your back straight.
