Cleaning can be so hard for people with body pain. Here are some tips for you to follow when you suffer from body pain while doing daily activities.
1. Think like an athlete
If you know you have a lot of chores to do, think like an athlete; warm up and stretch before you start.
2. Work forward
Keep your shoulders and hips facing toward your work. Don’t twist, bend, push or pull sideways as that can lead to pain or injury.
3. Proper posture
As you clean, remember to maintain proper posture. Avoid slouching and try not to bend over for long periods of time.
4. Think before you lift
It is important to remember to lift your legs, not your back or arms. Be sure to bend your knees and lift heavy items, like a full laundry basket, carefully.
5. Choose the right tools
Find a lightweight vacuum and a broom with an extra-long handle. These simple changes will make cleaning much easier on your lower back and can help prevent pain. You need to find the right tools to clean your furniture, whether in your home or company. All people need to clean. Even business owners who own companies like furniture companies.
6. Make a cleaning schedule
Make a daily cleaning schedule so you spend a little time each day cleaning, instead of doing all of the work in one afternoon.
