With warmer Spring weather and Summer right around the corner, you don’t have time to get all stuffed up or feel sicker than a dog. That makes life, work, literally everything more miserable and makes you simply want to stay in bed.

Far too many people succumb to seasonal sickness and allergies, so we’re here to help you step up your game in order to stay healthier this Spring. Here are several tried and true tips to keep in the back of your mind:

 

Understand Allergies

This is the time of year when plants start to pop and out comes all sorts of additional allergens that might get to you. Limiting time outside is a good first step to avoid seasonal allergy issues. And if symptoms persist or worsen, consider over-the-counter allergy medicine to get you through things. Make sure your medications do not hinder your ability to control a commercial vehicle.

 

Remember WARD

  • Water:​ Staying properly hydrated throughout the day is essential, plus water makes for a great alternative to sugary drinks with diuretic qualities.
  • Activity:​ Being active helps your body process food, burn off energy, and better resist seasonal sickness of all shapes and sizes.
  • Rest:​ It’s important to give your body enough time to recover each day, and especially when you’re trying to fight off sickness.
  • Diet:​ What you put into your body has an outsized effect on your overall bodily health, so treat it even better than usual this time of year.
