Seasonal allergies have a tendency to sneak up on you and make you feel less productive than usual. Sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy, watery eyes, and a runny nose all make it difficult to concentrate on daily activities. So, when allergy season starts, be prepared to take it on. Here are a few tips on how to prepare for allergy season:
1.) Know Your Allergy Triggers
When you identify which types of pollen you’re allergic to, you can work out approximately when you can expect your allergies to kick off and start taking steps to manage symptoms.
2.) Stock Up on Allergy Medicine in Advance
Be ready to start your allergy medications as soon as your symptoms begin.
3.) Watch Local Pollen Reports
Keep an eye on the local pollen counts, so you will know exactly when allergy season kicks off in your area.
4.) Reduce Your Exposure to Pollen
During high pollen days, keep windows and doors closed and avoid hanging laundry outside.
5.) Eat More Fruits and Veggies
Fruits and veggies are a powerful source of antioxidants and natural chemicals that can help fight any inflammation that comes with allergic reactions.
6.) Stock Up on Green Tea
Green tea contains natural antihistamines that can assist in the fight against allergies.
