Be Careful Shoveling Snow

With snowstorms hitting, it’s important to shovel it for safety, but be careful to not overexert yourself when outside — you can have a heart attack. Remember, do not eat a big meal before shoveling snow, use a small shovel, take a break and listen to your body, Heart.org recommends
