To outsmart spring allergies, try a daily “dose” of local honey. Finnish scientists found folks who enjoyed birch pollen honey during birch pollen season cut their symptoms by 60% and used half as many antihistamines as those who skipped honey. When bees collect nectar, their bodies get covered in pollen that ends up in honey. And when you consume that trace amount of local pollen daily, it builds immunity to allergens in your area through gradual exposure. Simply savor a spoonful of raw local honey with oatmeal, toast, or fruit daily.
Permission to skip grueling workouts to bolster your bones in favor of having a little fun! It turns out, to encourage healthy new bone growth and stop further bone loss as you age, all you have to do is jump. The impact of simply hopping around for a few minutes coaxes more calcium into bones, which significantly increases bone density and helps prevent painful fractures if you ever take a tumble. For best results, do three sets of 10 hops each day, keeping a sturdy chair nearby for stability if needed.
