Staying Away From Spring Allergies

Ahhhhh! That smell is in the air… The weather is FINALLY starting to change and the sense of summer is just around the corner. I mean, let’s be real, who doesn’t love to be outside when we (Midwesterners) see the thermometer hit 60 degrees for the first time? All the good that comes with spring, also carries the dreaded allergies with it. The sniffles, coughs, and itchy eyes take over our bodies like the black plague. Great news, though! There are some precautionary steps you can take to help prevent from having to go through your annual box(es) of tissues this spring:

First and foremost, try your best to limit your time outside. I know I know this may be challenging because you want nothing more than to soak up the fresh air. BUT, they do say April showers bring May flowers, right? Those flowers and leaf buds that are just starting to sprout carry a crazy amount of pollen and can spring on your allergies (pun intended). If you really can’t find a way to escape long periods in the newly fresh air, make sure to wear sunglasses, to prevent the pollen from finding its way into your eyes. Also, make sure to wash your hair in the shower well in order to prevent you from bringing the pollen into your household.

 

Another great way is to hop on the allergy medicine EARLY. It’s kind of like riding a bike; you wear your helmet to prevent any head injuries when you fall. In this case, prevent the allergies from even being able to beat your immune system. With all of this said, I am NOT a doctor, therefore make sure you discuss this option with someone who has a PhD to make sure it is safe for you to consume.

Sickness, and home remedies

We’ve all been there, it’s the middle of the semester, spring is right over the hill, and BAM! You get taken down by a cold or the flu. That is actually the worst, because once the warmer weather starts, everyone wants to be out enjoying it, which is hard when you have a sore throat and stuffy nose.

But, fear not! There are a few at home things you can try to give yourself some relief from the woes of constant tissues and cough drops.

Sore Throat:

To help relieve a scratchy painful throat, gargling with a teaspoon of salt mixed with a glass of warm water can help. Not only does the warm water soothe the throat but it can help to flush out any bacteria and loosen the mucus that sits and makes your throat feel sore. Continue reading

Workouts For Binge Watchers

We all have a favorite TV shows that we just have to watch every week, or we get in the mood to binge watch a whole season of the show we just love. Well now you do not have to feel guilty about taking time out of your day to watch a TV show!

There is a simple solution to make watching TV one of the most productive parts of your day. All you have to do is workout while you watch! I encourage you to write a workout routine that goes along with your show to keep you motivated and focused on working out throughout the whole episode.

It is a great idea to write your own workout because then it is specific to you and the show you watch. You can make your workout more challenging to really get yourself to sweat, or you can simply just make sure you are keeping your body moving and not just sitting for long periods of time. This also gives you the freedom to change up the exercises you use in your workout as often as you would like. The goal is to create a fun workout you can do while still enjoying your favorite TV show.

Here are a few tips on how to set up a workout that flows with your show.

  1. Do an exercise during the opening credits
  2. Assign an action to a common phrase said on the show
  3. Hold a position when characters are at specific location
  4. Do a move every time a charter does a particular action
  5. Complete an exercise whenever a common event or incident happens

If you do not want to make your own workout, then you can always look to see if there is already a workout for your favorite show out there. You can also take a look at what workout routines others have come up with for a specific show to give you ideas.

Here are a few examples:

The Bachelor Workout

The Big Bang Theory   

The Office
