Make sure that you watch your posture and body weight distribution – If you spend hours hunched over your Thanksgiving Turkey or putting weight on only one leg while cutting carrots, you could cause back pain. Be very careful when pulling out heavy items from the oven, especially the turkey.
Take Breaks & Ask For Help – It is okay to take it slow in the kitchen. Have a seat at the kitchen table and take a walk around the block in the fresh air stretch your back. Consider asking for help from family and friends. Remember, kids love to help with the mixing, especially the desserts.
Wear Good Shoes – There is always time to put on the high heals when the party starts, but until the cooking is complete in the kitchen, wear your tennis shoes or other shoes with support. If you are wearing bad shoes, they may cause back pain.
