Allergies Much?

New here? Start here...

Did You Know...
...that asthma and allergies affect 1 out of 4 Americans? And it's the 5th leading chronic disease in adults. - AAFA.ORG

Because allergies are so prevalent in adults and children, it plays a major role in why people miss school and work during high allergens season.

I am a perfect example. Last year, I was "out sick" almost every other month. Now when I say out sick I mean that as a stay-at-home-but-still-work-my-butt-off mom I would be at home laid up and all my appointments and responsibilities would all get majorly backlogged until I could pull myself off the bed or couch and be on the road to recovery.

However, for this years seasonal change, I have a plan!

I just found this awesome tip over on the Thread Banger Decor it Yourself podcast. Meg recommends that we hang a fresh bunch of eucalyptus from the shower head. The steam from the shower will relieve your clogged sinuses and soothe your respiratory system.

Now I just need to take a trip to my local florist. Hope you all enjoy this little tip here.

My best,
