Servicing Areas of Newmarket - Aurora - Bradford - Richmond Hill - East Gwillimbury & King!

Always push the snow rather than lifting and throwing it, to avoid twisting and turning movements that cause strains.

Shovelling without breaking your back

Did you know that the sharp pain you feel putting away the dishes on a high shelf might be traced to lifting a snow shovel above your shoulder after a big storm? Repeatedly raising your arm and lifting a snow-filled shovel above shoulder-level is a common cause of many of the complaints chiropractors hear. Fortunately, Ontario chiropractors offer some easy tips to help ensure a pain-free winter:

Don’t let the snow pile up If the weather report calls for several days of snow, frequent shovelling will allow you to move smaller amounts of snow at once. It’s far less strenuous in the long run.

Pick the right shovel Use a lightweight pusher-type shovel. If you’re using a metal shovel, spray it with Teflon first so snow won’t stick to it.

Push, don’t throw Always push the snow to the side rather than throw it. This way you can avoid lifting heavy shovelfuls of snow and any sudden twisting or turning movements that can lead to strains.

Bend your knees As with any heavy object, you need to use your knees, leg and arm muscles to do the pushing and lifting while keeping your back straight.

Take a break If you feel tired or short of breath, stop and take a rest. Shake out your arms and legs. Stop shovelling immediately if you feel chest or back pain. If you have back pain that is severe or persists for more than a day after shovelling or experience lingering shoulder or back pain, see a chiropractor. If you have severe chest pain, see a doctor immediately. Find more information at www.chiropractic. on.ca.

5 tips when buying a home in winter It may not be the busiest season for buying real estate, but the colder months offer many benefits to those shopping for a home. “Most buyers know they can look forward to less competition this season, but it’s also a good time to see how the home holds up to the cold weather,” explains Ray Ferris, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “While the home’s curb appeal may not be at its best in the middle of winter, it sure is a good time to see how well the furnace works and if there’s enough insulation.”

If you’re shopping for a home this season, be sure to pay close attention to the five areas below. “These are things you’ll want to ask your Realtor no matter what time of year,” says Ferris. “To get a better idea of how a home looks in the warmer months, simply ask the sellers to provide photos of the house.” 1. HVAC: Is the furnace in good working order? Does the home feel cold or comfortable as you walk through it? 2. Doors and windows: Is the house drafty? You’ll want to check whether the windows and doors are properly insulated.

3. Roof: It may be covered with snow, but that’s alright because you can see how well it holds up to the weight and if the house has any leaks. 4. Driveway: If the driveway has a snow melting system, now’s a good time to check if it works. 5. Neighbourhood upkeep: Take note of how well the neighbours tend to driveways and sidewalks, and whether the city plows or salts icy streets. Go to www.wedothehomework.ca for more information.

A healthier kitchen for a healthier you Believe it or not, your kitchen can play a big role in helping you stick to your new year’s resolutions of getting healthier and eating more fruits and veggies. The way you organize the space and the items you bring into it can make it easier to make smarter food choices every day. Consider these three simple adjustments that can help create a healthier you. 1. Water everywhere. The health benefits of drinking enough water are almost endless. You’ll benefit from more energy, better digestion, improved mood, and a reduction in toxins. But do you know what’s in your tap water? Give your water a makeover by looking for a filtration system advanced enough to catch trace pharmaceuticals. For a built-in option and sleek look, GE offers advanced pharmaceutical filtration in many of their refrigerator models. 2. Grow your own greens. Herbs add fresh flavour to any meal, often reducing the need for salt and butter. But buying large bunches of pre-packaged herbs can be expensive and wasteful if you only need a handful. Instead, dedicate some space in your kitchen to growing your own. Try a single pot of parsley or chives, as both are easy to grow. Take it to the next level with GroVert, which offers beautiful living wall planters; or Urban Cultivator, a fully-automated kitchen garden that

3 quick storage area upgrades Skating season is well underway, but the gear is buried somewhere in the garage. And while the forecast continues to call for freezing temperatures, the extra winter layers are still hidden in one of the bins in the closet. It’s time to take control and get organized with help from design expert Kimberley Seldon. Working with the Electrical Safety Authority, she offers these tips for creating smart, functional and well-lit storage in the basement. 1. In the zone. Map out storage zones to ensure items are where you would expect them to be. From winter wear to camping gear and books to toys, built-ins and storage benches work well to eliminate visual clutter without taking up too

takes up about as much room as a small wine fridge. 3. Put fruit on display. Fruits and vegetables are easily forgotten at the bottom of a crisper drawer. Pull out your prettiest platters or a little-used cake stand and make fruits and vegetables part of your kitchen decor. Not only will you brighten up your space on a grey winter day, but they’ll be the first thing you see when you stroll into the kitchen looking for a snack. Learn more online at geappliances.ca.

much floor space. Consider adding shelves at different heights for varied accessibility and use nooks and crannies — think about the space under the stairs or building storage units between rooms. 2. Lighten up. Good lighting is often forgotten when storage spaces are planned. But seeing is believing! A licensed electrical contractor can provide ideas on automated options for closet lights and suggest the best lightbulbs to use. Motion sensors are another popular choice. Just remember that it’s important to know the rules around the safe distance between ceiling lights and storage items to prevent anything from catching fire. For example, pot lights must be 150 millimetres away

from any stored items or cabinets; while other ceiling lights must be 300 millimetres away. 3. Hidden electrical. Give devices, laptops and gadgets a designated space by adding charging stations and strategically located outlets. And while we would all like to tuck away the electrical panel, keep in mind that it can’t be located in a closet or bathroom and that the working space in front of it can’t be obstructed. A Licensed Electrical Contractor and interior designer will help to design an organized and safe space for your family. Find more storage solutions online at poweryourreno.ca.

Tom and Diane, We wanted to let you know how impressed we were by Vincent Bongard and the Mitchell Team through our home selling process. It was serendipitous that Vincent knocked on our door the same day we were debating putting our house on the market before the spring rush or waiting until May.

NG F ASkI 98% O

After interviewing other potential realtors, we knew Vincent was the best fit for us. His drive, straightforwardness, and professionalism easily put him ahead of the others. We cannot believe that in under a month, our home received a facelift, was listed, and sold for a higher price than we had expected. The tradesmen Vincent recommended were top notch, and the staging was spectacular. We are very grateful for the Mitchell Team resources.
