Don't Let Allergies Ruin Your Time in Nature

By Genevieve Cunningham

Getting outside on a regular basis is one of the best things that you can do for your health, both mentally and physically. Nature is soothing. It's healing. It just feels good. But for some people, getting outside also means that their allergies suddenly flare up and make them miserable. A runny nose, headache, scratchy throat. These side effects may not seem like the effort. So how can you minimize the allergies and enjoy more time outside? Luckily, you have options! If you want to keep the allergies away and get outdoors more this year, take a look at these ways to combat your allergies all year long. 

Wash Away the Pollen

Every time you go outside, you bring little pieces of the outside world in with you. You might have pollen on your shoes. You may have little allergens on your jacket. It might even be on your skin! Make washing up and wiping things down a habit in your home. Change your shoes when you go in. Wash your hands and face. The more you can keep the allergen away from your nose, the better you'll be able to manage the problem.

Keep Good Habits

Your habits are everything, and this is still true when it comes to allergies. If the winds are especially strong, consider wearing a mask outside. If you're allergic to dust, make sure that dusting is a part of your everyday cleaning routine. Make sure that you take preventative medication and that you're eating a healthy diet. Keeping healthier habits on the daily can help you eliminate many of the frustrating symptoms that come with the season. 

See Your Doctor

Since allergies are incredibly common, your doctor may be able to help. Even if they can't cure the allergy, they can probably point you to a routine or a medication that can keep the symptoms away. Don't be afraid to ask the doctor for advice. Ask them to help you pinpoint your triggers. Ask them to help you find the best and most effective medication. Doctors really do know best, so reach out and get the help you need.

Allergies can be a real bummer to your spring and summer. Or for many people, they can be a real bummer all year long! Don't let allergies get in the way of your outdoor fun time. Keep them at bay with these tips. With some planning and special care, you can protect yourself from allergies and stay healthier than ever starting now and heading into the future.
