January is the month to make New Year resolutions with hopes that this year is the best one, yet! So, while you plan your resolutions, consider adding a resolution concerning allergies and asthma.
What if this was the year that you took the reins on your allergies, instead of your allergies leading you? At Langford Allergy, our team of doctors is here to help!
Start the New Year off right with these allergy and asthma resolutions:
Exercise Regularly & Often
Exercise is extremely beneficial to your body and brain. However, if you struggle with allergies or asthma, exercise can be a daunting task. When you work out, be mindful of the weather. Cold weather can trigger asthma attacks. So, during the winter season, exercise indoors.
During the upcoming spring season, be mindful of the pollen – as this trigger can easily send you into a sneezing fit. Additionally, the more you exercise, the better your body will feel.
Remember Your Tools
Do you enjoy a beach trip or a vacation to a new place every year? When you pack your bags, remember to take your inhaler and epinephrine injector. Being prepared for an asthma attack or an allergy fit is extremely important, especially if you’re in a new place and new environment.
If you’ll be gone for an extended amount of time, make sure to schedule an appointment for allergy shots before you leave.
Educate Yourself About Allergies & Asthma
The best proactive tool you can use to fight allergies and asthma is education! When you understand what triggers your asthma and allergies, you will be able to avoid potential attacks.
