Health Tip: Rake Leaves Safely
Don't forget to stretch first

(HealthDay News) -- Raking leaves is not only a fall necessity, it's a great way to burn calories. So don't forget to prepare your body for the pending workout.

The AARP website recommends:

  • Layer clothing so you can remove a layer at a time as you get warmer.
  • Warm up before raking. Light stretching and walking should do the trick.
  • Practice good posture as you rake, keeping your body straight and tall.
  • Go slowly, take breaks and drink plenty of water.
