How to Help Survive Your Allergies

By Alexis Mills

With the start of spring, it is time to prepare yourself for blooming flowers and allergy season. While we all enjoy the beauty that spring can bring with baby animals, chirping birds, and fields of flowers, this season also means pollen in the air leading to horrible allergies. If you are one of the unlucky ones who gets the delightful congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes, or headaches from the shift from winter to spring, hopefully some tips and tricks will make this year's spring more enjoyable for you.

Head to the Drugstore

If your symptoms are worse than usual and the allergy medication you usually take just isn't working, it is time to experiment and try other brands or using different kinds to get relief. If you are still suffering and no medicine is offering you a break from your symptoms, it is definitely time to see a professional allergist who can give you a better sense on how to help.

Change Your Clothes 

Right when you get home from being outside, change your clothes and take off your shoes to keep you from spreading the pollen throughout your house. You will definitely want to shower before bed to prevent bringing it into bed with you, which might disrupt your sleep schedule. Wash any potential flare-up from your hair and body; depending on how bad your allergies get, that should keep you safe.

Work Out Indoors 

Especially on days when you can see the pollen flying through the air, swap you run for an at-home workout or go to the gym instead. Your allergies will thank you! Breathing in all of the extra stuff flying through the air will also make your workout more difficult because it is harder to breathe.

Keep Windows Closed and Sealed

If you are sensitive to pollen, it is smartest to keep your windows closed so as to not let it in your house. Making your home a safe place from pollen will give your body time to recover from dealing with your allergies.

Lastly, it's important to take your allergies seriously because they really do take a toll on your body. Don't try to brush this aside because you need to listen to the signals that your body is giving you. If you are feeling drained from your allergies, take time to rest, go to bed early, or take a sick day from work. Going overboard when you are feeling like your allergies are taking over will only make them worse and leave you feeling awful while you are trying to push it further.
