Our O-Tip of the week series we will be providing valuable “OT-Approved Life Hacks” to provide you with simple and helpful solutions for living.
For the month of February, our O-Tip series will help you to practice safe and efficient snow removal this winter.
Snow shoveling can be very strenuous work, especially when dealing with large amounts. Therefore, as long as it is safe to be outside, it is suggested that you try to tackle the snow in stages. This may mean going out and shoveling multiple times throughout a snowfall. Waiting until all the snow has fallen will make the snow harder to move, which can increase the chance of injury. Set yourself a timer and go out every 2 hours or so and reward yourself with a cup of hot cocoa each when you finish!
