Ah, springtime! The days are longer, the peepers are peeping, the daffodils are blooming, and the hummingbirds are back after their improbable 3000-mile journey (put out that nectar, please)!
Happy days are here again...unless you suffer from allergies. Although allergies can happen year-round, this is truly high season for sniffling, sneezing and misery. Prescription meds may help but before you reach for that spray or pill, try a few rounds of Alternate Nostril Breath (below). This ancient yoga breath can be an effective tool in dealing with allergies and has been known to help with asthma as well. Not only that, it has a profoundly calming effect, balancing mind and body.
So, don't be afraid to go outside and smell the roses...just remember to practice
, aka, Alternate Nostril Breath. Happy Spring!
