1. Reduce your exposure to allergens.
Home should be a place for rest and relaxation. However, if allergens have taken up residence, it quickly can turn into a place for allergy fits and frustration! Here are a few ways you can reduce your exposure to allergens in your home:
- Replace carpet with LVP or hardwood flooring to drastically minimize dust mites.
- Fix leaks and water-damaged areas to avoid the spreading of mold.
- Consider pest control measures to eliminate cockroaches and other pests.
- Take precautionary measures to keep pollen out of your home (i.e. shoes off at the door, showering after being outside, and keeping windows closed).
2. Stop smoking and/or avoid tobacco smoke as much as possible.
Damage caused by tobacco smoke is two-fold. If you smoke or are around second-hand smoke often, you are more susceptible to more drastic allergy symptoms because your lungs are damaged. To prevent serious allergy or asthma flare-ups, quit smoking or avoid second-hand smoke as much as possible.
3. Exercise regularly.
More than losing weight and getting fit, regular exercise and eating healthy foods can help you manage your allergies! When you exercise, your body is able to flush out allergens and bacteria out of your airways. Exercising helps increase blood flow, release endorphins, and strengthen antibodies.
