Manage Seasonal Allergies
Spring is the time for flowers and trees to bloom. Yet, if you’re among the millions of people who suffer from seasonal allergies, it’s also when you’re likely to be dealing with sneezing, congestion and itchy eyes. Seasonal allergies, also called hay fever or allergic rhinitis, can be incredibly bothersome this time of year. But, there are some simple strategies to keep them under control. While avoiding exposure to allergens is your best option, non-prescription medications, including antihistamines, decongestants and nose sprays can help keep symptoms at bay. Rinsing your nasal passages with saline solution can also help relieve nasal congestion by flushing out mucus and allergens from your nose.

Rev Up with High-Interval Walking
Never been a fan of running? You may want to consider the impressive benefits to be gained by high interval walking. Repeated intervals of three minutes of fast walking followed by three minutes of slower strolling can help maximize the benefits of walking. Many experts say that using this form of exercise for 30 minutes is as effective as exercising at a steady pace for 60 minutes.

Consider a Plant-Forward Diet
A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts is not only a model for healthful sustainable living, it also has been linked to a lower risk of obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s and some types of cancer. By swapping out animal-based foods for plant-forward meals and snacks, you’ll get more of the nutrients which are frequently under-consumed, including vitamins A, C and E, folate, potassium, calcium and magnesium.
