Awesome! Another season… can mean another season of allergies for some of us. I’m not sure when my body decided I was going to have allergies again… but I had them until about age 11 or 12 and then nada until I turned about 30. I blame it on my move from Iowa (in my youth) to Kansas (after marriage) because I did have one season of allergies when I moved here, but it was short-lived to one season. At any rate…
The itchy eyes and heavy head makes me FEEL like hunkering down into my bed and SLEEPING. BUT… that isn’t going to help me – honestly, taking a nap like that mid-day… just makes me feel really rotten, and crabby!
So, for the sake of my children, and husband – I try to avoid naps! (Yes, it’s THAT bad).
So yesterday was the day… it hit me like a freight train! The sneezing fits, and watery eyes, itchy throat – it resembles a head cold… YUCK.
But, from my experience… I’ve learned the BEST remedy is the one God made. Drinking lots of water, and working out. It works like a charm!
Oh sure, it’s the last on my mind too – but it REALLY does help. I had more energy, and my head felt more clear than it had all day – during, and afterwards.
Yes, it completely works!
So – if you feel a head cold or allergies coming on – honestly – grab your Emergen-c and get to movin’! Ignore your “feelings” of a pity-party and draw some strength from God!
(I hear you moaning!!) Honestly – just try it! You’ll be so glad you did!!
** The only exception to working out when feeling ill is obviously the stomach flu, fever and chest colds. Your body needs to rest if the ailment is below the neck. If it’s above and you’re fever free – it might just be in your head. 🙂 Sweat it out!
