Transitioning from Winter to Spring

It’s finally been feeling more like spring recently, despite the windiness and chilly nights. After the long and cold winter, I doubt anyone is complaining!

To transition from colder to warmer weather, I recommend including more outdoor workout time in your schedule. You may even be able to save a commute to the gym by exercising outdoors. Slowly spending more time will also provide exposure to allergens earlier in the season when the air levels are still low instead of being hit full effect mid-season; this gradual exposure can serve to build tolerance and may help diminish the severity of your sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, and seasonal allergies over the course of the season.
