Know Your Risk: Arthritis is now seen as a woman's disease, affecting 2.8 million

those that you'll be using during your work-out.
Lower the Intensity: Retire your marathon running shoes and pick-up your yoga

your mower. Regularly check to ensure that your mower blades are sharp and cutting
cleanly. A sharp, balanced blade cuts faster and cleaner, so you'll have an even
cut and reduce mowing time.

yards, gardens and washing cars. This action will reduce your water bills and
the demand on your community's water supply.
the grass grow. You can prevent weeds from taking over your lawn by not cutting
your grass as often. Longer grass supports a deeper root system. Additionally,
taller grass grows slower than shorter grass, which will reduce mowing time, the
amount of gasoline you use and the wear on your equipment.
