6 Ways to Keep Exercising With Allergies

5. Listen to Your Body

If you're taking medicine and you still feel tired after exercising outdoors or if it causes symptoms that you don't like, you may want to stay indoors.

6. Take Your Meds Before You Sneeze

Start taking allergy medications weeks before the season. Don't wait until you have symptoms. If you know you have spring allergies, take an over-the-counter medication starting around Valentine's Day and through the summer. Check with your doctor if you take a prescription.

Take medications that have worked for you in the past. Pay attention to the weather, particularly when winter weather turns warm and pollens and molds release into the air.
