Virginia is for lovers. Sadly, that doesn’t apply to those who are fond of consistent patterns of weather. This is one of the only states where there is a random 70-degree weather day in December, and it can snow one random day in April. Although it is predominantly cold here in Virginia, without the random snow days, spring weather can be awesome. It is a time of surprising changes. There is no denying that spring weather can be associated with many things, some of which are beautiful, some of which are not.

Here are 9 things that come with spring:

1. The Blossoming of Trees and Flowers

Springtime means that the trees and flowers come back to life again. After a dead winter, this is a time when we get to see the beautiful flowers blossom again.

2. Shorts, Shirts, and Sandals

With the warm weather, we can put away the coats, sweaters, and boots and take out our shorts, t-shirts, and sandals.

3. Ice Cream

What better dessert to eat in the warm spring weather than ice cream?

4. A Walk in The Park

The beauty of spring can be seen while taking a nice stroll in the park because the weather is just right, not too hot and not too cold.

5. Easter

Easter egg hunting and chocolate bunnies are some of the best parts of spring.

6. Longer Days

In the winter, the days feel shorter since nighttime lasts the longest. With the arrival of spring, however, the days become longer with more sun time, in addition to daylight savings time.

7. Pollen Allergies

While springtime can mean beautiful things, it can also come with a few annoying things. One such example is pollen allergies. For those of us who have these allergies, we know very well that sneezing and red itchy eyes are not fun.

8. The Insects

Sometimes I wish it was winter again when I see a bee or a wasp swarming around gardens. Though, without them, it wouldn't have been possible to have so many beautiful flowers and all the fresh air we breathe.

9. Rainy Days

Though we love the sunshine, spring also means it is going to rain on most days.

Despite some of the annoying things that spring brings, it brings out our inner happiness with Mother Nature. Out of the four seasons, spring is clearly the season with the most changes. Some even agree that it is the best season compared to summer, winter, or fall. Whatever the reason, spring is a wonderful season!

6 Way To Fight Off Your Annoying Pollen Allergies This Spring Season

It's springtime again! This is an article to help you deal with those awful springtime pollen allergies. When your body just wants to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT that pollen, while you just want to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT all that sneezing, tearing, and high-key dying.

So, to just start off, I want to have a brief science lesson explaining what allergies really are.

When the body comes into contact with foreign threats, it does its best to protect itself. In this case, during the springtime, the body often mistakes pollen- tree pollen, flower pollen, you name it!- as a foreign invader, trying to harm the body. Therefore, when the body's cells come in contact with these invaders, they send out signals to warn the body of the threat. These signals are known as histamines. When the cell is in danger, they start sending out histamines like a 911 call. Except, in the case of pollen allergies, there is no emergency, and your body is just being a drama queen. However, as a result, the body, who believes the world is ending, starts fighting off the pollen causing the body to try to flush it out, either through coughing, sneezing, a runny nose, or teary or itchy eyes.

1. Stay indoors whenever possible

Pollen throughout the day is at its peak during the day between 5 a.m and 10 a.m. while the trees are trying to send out their pollen to a special lady friend. Pollen is usually released during sunny days as evaporation of moisture helps spread the pollen further. Staying indoors and away from the pollen infested trees could be a great way to stop encountering some pesky pollen. If the pollen count is high for your area and you have to go out, remember to plan accordingly, either by taking medication or wearing a mask.

2. Take a shower

Just like how rain stops pollen from spreading, a good shower can wash off the pollen off of you. This can help if you want to wash off any unwanted pollen that might be sticking onto you like in your hair, skin, or clothes. This may help you especially if you want to take a quick shower before you sleep to sleep more comfortably.

3. Stay away from booze

Alcohol contains histamines. Histamines are produced by the fermentation process of yeast or bacteria during the brewing process. As a result, this may aggravate your body even more when pollen is introduced. In addition, some alcohol like wine and beer contain sulfites that can stimulate allergies.

4. Drink more water

Like when you get sick, mucus is produced to catch, trap, or excrete harmful pathogens. And, sometimes one gets such a stuffy nose because of this! In order to decrease the mucus viscosity and allow for easier breathing, drink lots of water. In addition, because of the constant tearing and runny nose, your body loses a lot of fluids, so it is good to stay hydrated to make sure you are replenishing your body's lost liquids. Sounds gross, but helps a lot!

5. Eat these foods

There are some theories that eating your local honey would help incorporate pollen immunity into your body because your body is able to digest this pollen. In addition, kiwis are able to cut down on histamines, and pineapples can apparently reduce inflammation. Although foods are not the end all be all cure, these foods are known to help.

6. Exercise the allergies away

Although exercise is not the end all be all cure for allergies, it can help manage the symptoms when one exercises regularly. In general, exercise helps improve one's immune system. Exercising your lungs and heart can also help maintain the health of your body so that it makes it stay in tip-top shape to fight off those pesky harmless, foreign invaders.

Hope this helps! And, may the odds be in your favor.
