When weeding

If you are weeding, planting annuals, or doing other jobs close to the ground job, do not place your weight on your hands. As an alternative, squat with one leg up and frequently move your weight from one leg to the other. Wearing knee pads or using a garden stool will help as well.

Because there are no joints in the spine, bending at the middle of your back can put unnecessary strain on it. Instead, try relaxing your body, bending your knees slighlty, and moving in a fluid motion.
Silence and smile are two powerful words. Smile is the way to solve many problems and Silence is the way to avoid many problems
