Cover up –
Wearing sunglasses is a great way to prevent the pollen from getting into your eyes. Not to mention, it also protects your eyes from the harmful UV rays.

Dust off –
Before heading indoors, give your clothing and hair a little shake outdoors to prevent from bringing the pollen inside.

Stay inside in the morning –
Pollen levels are especially high during the mornings. Though this is a popular time for many people to exercise outside, spring allergy sufferers are recommended to exercise indoors whenever possible, especially in the morning.

Easy Spring Trail Mix Ideas

As we’ve mentioned before, when spring starts, we all start heading outdoors. While it may all be fun and games, outdoor activities require more preparation. Hydration and sun protection are a must, but what else should we bring?

If you’re going to be spending long hours away from home, it’s always a good idea to also pack a little something to eat. One of our favorite snacks to bring is trail mix. They are usually a mix of sweet and savory–a quick pick-me-up for any type of mood. It’s a lot more affordable to make your own trail mix instead of buying store bought ones.

Don’t know what to put in your own homemade trail mix? Here are a few ideas:

  • sunflower seeds
  • raisins
  • cranberries
  • pretzels
  • almonds
  • cashews
  • granola
  • coconut flakes
  • apricots
  • banana chips
  • mini chocolate chips
  • dried cherries
  • pumpkin seeds
  • ground cinnamon (for flavor)

Toss them all in a reusable box or sandwichbag, and you have your own trail mix, perfect for on the go activities. The perfect thing about trail mix is you can customize to your liking. Don’t like almonds? Substitute it with another type of nut! Just be sure to get a good mix in!
