My mother’s favorite past time is gardening and yard work. She has a green thumb that I did not inherit. Growing up, she tried to pass on her adored hobby to me, but I could never acquire a knack for it. Now that I have a house of my own, doing a bit of gardening and yard work is necessary, and she still brings me flowers to plant from time to time. One hurdle that my mother has overcame is her battle with rheumatoid arthritis. She keeps this condition well under control, but I know that it can be easily aggravated. Recently, she shared with me her go-to tips and items for still enjoying flower gardening while keeping aches and pains at bay.
- Extra Strength TYLENOL® – After a long afternoon of weeding and planting in her garden, my mom takes Extra Strength TYLENOL® to combat the minor aches and pains from bending and working. It helps her to get back to the things that she loves to do. Use only as directed.
- Ergonomic hand tools – Instead of purchasing cheap gardening tools, she invests in ergonomic ones that have handles that are easy to grip. The handles on these tools also tend to be more “cushy” to aid in hand comfort.
- Invest in a Kneeling Pad- Take the pressure off of knees with a well-cushioned gardening pad. Find one that has a removable cover for easy cleaning and a thick foam cushion for comfort.
- Choose an “easy” gardening apron- Body aches and pains can make it difficult to tie sashes or fasten hooks. When looking for a gardening apron, invest in one that does not tie around the neck but rather fastens on one side. Looks for longer waist ties that can be wrapped around and tied in the front or attaches via velcro on the sides.
