Alleviate Spring Allergies

Allergy season is already upon us in certain parts of the United States. Keep the following tips in mind if you are affected by seasonal allergies when spring arrives in your area:

  • Take off your shoes as soon as you get home and leave them by the door. This will reduce the number of pollutants inside your home.

  • Avoid going outdoors when the pollen count is high, which is typically during hot, dry and windy days.

  • Do some spring cleaning. Dust accumulated indoors over the course of the winter can sometimes be worse than outdoor allergies. 

Don’t Let a Bad Day Get You Down

Life is full of unexpected frustrations. Running late, spilling coffee on yourself or getting into an argument can start your day off on the wrong foot. The good news is that you can control your mood and prevent these obstacles from ruining your entire day.

The most important thing you can do is to focus on the positive. Studies show that when you’re positive, you have 23 percent fewer health-related effects from stress, you’re 31 percent more productive, you’re 40 percent more likely to receive a promotion and your creativity levels triple.

Here are a few ways to turn a bad day around:

  • Pinpoint the concrete reason for your frustration and address it immediately.

  • Write down or recite three things you are grateful for.

  • Choose not to be a victim of your frustration. Make a conscious effort to be positive.

  • Set realistic expectations for your day.
