Health Tip: Doing Yard Work
Take precautions to stay healthy

(HealthDay News) -- Working in your yard is a great way to get exercise, fresh air and relieve stress.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises these safety precautions:

  • Wear sufficient clothing to protect against sun damage and insect bites.
  • Use caution in the heat, limiting outdoors time when temperatures are high. Pace yourself to avoid overheating.
  • Drink plenty of fluids, but avoid caffeinated, carbonated, high-sugar and alcoholic drinks.
  • Use caution while using yard equipment and chemicals.
  • Vaccinate, especially against tetanus.
