5 Essentials for a Healthy Spring
Since I often am in the running for palest person alive, I always take time in the spring to look at what sunscreen I have (and often toss!) and buy fresh bottles for the upcoming season. Sunny days even this early in the year can burn! I very vividly remember getting burnt at a 5K on a sunny day in March. There’s nothing healthy about a sunburn.
Remember, sunscreen doesn’t last forever either. For best results toss last year’s and get some new stuff for all the fun you are going to have this spring and summer. Just think of all the adventures these bottles are going on!
Is there anything more fun than a new pair of sunnies! Sunglasses not just look cool but promote good eye health, so get a fresh pair for a healthy spring.
Get Allergies Under Control
This is a big one! It’s time to FINALLY get those allergies under control. You can’t have a healthy spring sneezing all the time!
For many of us, spring allergies can be debilitating and it’s critical to remember to start taking your meds and get your plan of action now. If you’ve been a long time reader of the blog, you know that I have really struggled with allergies in the past to the point of having sinus surgery several years ago. Stuff like this used to be my worst nightmare!
After working with my doctors for a long time (which I recommend you do if you are having serious issues,) I finally have my allergies under control. One critical thing that I added to my allergy routine was nose spray. Pills would treat the headaches and such but nothing else would help my nose congestion. It was by far the best thing that kept me from constantly feeling foggy.
This spring there is a new spray to choose from and I think it could help many of you have a healthy spring. It’s called FLONASE® Sensimist™ Allergy Relief and it’s a new over-the-counter treatment for allergies available at CVS. It’s a game changer!
It’s also scent-free, alcohol free, has little to no drip and is less invasive with a short nozzle. So basically it takes a lot of things that make a nose spray uncomfortable and makes them better. I had a lot of trouble using nose sprays at all, and this mist delivery system was what finally allowed me to use one!
You used to only be able to get FLONASE® Sensimist™ by prescription and now it’s available over the counter at CVS, which is ahhhh-mazing! If you are struggling, I highly recommend you try it out.
For those of you who suffer from allergies, next week I’m going to share the complete steps I took to finally conquer my allergies. So more deets to come!
Keep an Allergy Kit
While it is so much better to proactively treat allergies, sometimes it catches up with you. Stop by CVS and pick up a few CVS Health essentials to treat those headaches, sore throats and even watery eyes.
Make a kit so you don’t have to stop by the store the next time you are feeling bad.
Embrace the Flowers
One of the great joys of spring is getting back outdoors and seeing the beautiful show. It’s invigorating for your soul to embrace nature this time of year. There is no better way to ditch the winter blues and have a healthy spring than to surround yourself with this!
Now you’re ready to have a healthy spring this year too!
