new year, new goals

With the holidays buttoned up, the new year often brings personal resolutions, or at least the hope of resolutions fulfilled. Eating better, exercising more, eliminating clutter, improving the home, learning a new life skill, or just getting more personal time—whatever your goal, try to make it a realistic one because, sadly, studies say that only 8 percent of those pledged each year are actually kept. If you are looking for some inspiration to conquer your goals, this issue of Denver Life Magazine could be that catalyst. To kickstart or increase your exercise routine (this is one of my personal goals for 2020), check out our new home gym technology on page 97. If you are looking for a healthier intake, try the smoothie recipe on page 48 or the one-carb wonders…

slip and slide

I have a neighbor who doesn’t shovel his sidewalks, and they get icy and treacherous. What can I do to convince him that it’s better for everyone if he shovels ASAP?—K.C., Boulder Seems like a slippery subject, but you’ve got the law on your side, K.C., so you may get this job done with merely a phone call. State law requires all of us, both homeowners and renters, to remove snow and ice from our driveways and sidewalks within 24 hours (even sooner in some cities). This is especially important in places where kids may be walking to the school bus or crosswalk, as you can imagine, but anyone’s life could be drastically altered by one fall. Enforcement and fines vary by municipality. In Boulder, a first offense comes with a…

shoveling snow without injury

There are countless ways to enjoy Colorado snow, but throwing your back out while shoveling the driveway before work isn’t one of them. Tackle the arduous task of snow removal with a safe and efficient approach. 1 BUNDLE UP Before you start, make sure you’re dressed appropriately. Two pieces of gear are indispensable: heavy-tread snow boots to reduce the risk of slipping on ice, and thermal waterproof gloves with good grip. Our picks for the 2019-2020 season: The North Face Chilkat III boots ($110) and Give’r 4 Season gloves ($99). rei.com 2 INVEST IN ERGONOMIC EQUIPMENT Using the rusty shovel that’s been sitting in the garage for years invites disaster. Instead, opt for an ergonomic choice designed for ease and comfort, like the True Temper 18-Inch Ergonomic Mountain Mover ($26). homedepot.com 3 THINK TECHNIQUE Technique is…

ask dr. kev

Q: I worry about my dog being outside in the winter. Should I be concerned about hypothermia? Dr. Kev: In a word, yes. Most people are familiar with the dangers of summer weather—leaving dogs in hot cars, for example. Owners aren’t usually as knowledgeable about how to protect their dogs from the cold. Several factors determine a dog’s tolerance for winter weather. Thick-coated breeds like Siberian huskies, malamutes, Bernese mountain dogs, and Great Pyrenees tend to do better, while dogs with short, thin coats like boxers, greyhounds, pit bull terriers, and short-haired dachshunds are more at risk. Small dogs and toy breeds are more susceptible to hypothermia, as smaller animals have a larger surface area-to-mass ratio and lose body heat faster than large dogs. Small dogs are also in more contact…
