Are you checking your local allergy advisories?
October 25, 2017
You know those days when you get to work or school or to the gym and everybody is complaining about waking up with itchy eyes, stuffy noses, and headaches?
Those are the days that your weather forecaster probably warned you about the day before!
If you’re not paying attention to the allergy and pollen forecasts that are made for your area every single day, you’re missing opportunities to prevent yourself from having unnecessary allergic reactions. Here’s how you can start to use these forecasts to your advantage:
Understand What They’re Reporting
If you don’t know what a high count is, then you won’t know to take that extra dose of allergy medication before bed.
Take a moment to learn about how the forecasts are determined, then arm yourself with medication and any other precautions that might prevent an allergic reaction when you walk out into the line of fire.
Know What You Need To Look Out For
Do your allergic reactions happen because of grass, ragweed, or mold?
Know yourself and your symptoms, then pay attention to the times of day that each of these allergens are running rampant.
Be Proactive in Prevention
Making a habit out of checking these levels will help you get in tune with exactly what your body reacts to and how you can prevent those reactions.
An allergic reaction is really just your body’s reaction to elements that your body deems unsafe. If you have a proper treatment plan in place, you can train your body to get used to allergens and lessen your chances of a reaction.
