7 Timeless Tips for Surviving & Thriving During Allergy Season

Inspired by Dawn suggests surviving allergy season with medicine in a Style Rx designer pill box case

Has the pollen got you yet? After a nice early glimpse of spring and the daffodils blooming last week, seasonal allergies have hit us hard. Welcome spring, but ugh we're feeling awful. We got lulled in complacency over the winter and let spring allergies sneak up on us. So we thought we could all use an urgent refresher on how to manage through this pollen-filled season. Here's a throwback post from last spring to refresh us all, and hopefully keep us breathing easy.

  1. Start Early - Start taking allergy medication as soon as the pollen counts start to rise. A Best Health magazine article cites a doctor that says that "Once the symptoms have started, they’re harder to control.”
  2. Close Windows - Pollen levels are highest in the morning so keep the windows closed especially during the AM
  3. Shower in the Evening - Pollen clings to you and your clothes so after spending time outside toss your clothes in the laundry and jump in the shower for a rinse off
  4. Recirculate the Air - At home or in the car, set your air conditioner to recirculate the air rather than drawing in pollen-laden air
  5. Wrap Yourself In Style - Don the stylish sunglasses and wide brimmed hat to reduce the amount of pollen that ends up on you or in your eyes
  6. Stay Consistent - Keep your allergy medication close at hand and remember to take it daily
  7. Bonus Points - Help yourself by preloading your allergy medicine in a Style Rx to make sure you always have your medicine with you and remember take it daily. You'll look and feel better for it!
