An Early Spring: 14 Ways To Make Your Home An Allergy-Free Zone

Although there are officially 12 more days until Spring, it feels like it is already here. Warmer than usual temperatures, as well as, the extreme and severe weather that go hand-in-hand with them, (tornadoes, anyone?) abound. The plants, trees and just nature in general (humans included) are confused by the unseasonably warm temperatures. This is great for those who hate the winter cold. Unfortunately, it also means that allergies are becoming not-so-seasonal anymore.

Replacing Your Pillows

Our pillows help us get a good sleep. They provide a soft cushion for our neck and head and can directly affect our spine.

Do You Know When To Buy Organic?

Most of us cannot afford to buy 100% organic when we grocery shop- I know I can’t. Here’s some information to help you decide what foods are better, i.e. healthier, when organically grown: the Environmental Working Group (EWG) advises that consumers can reduce their pesticide exposure by 80% by avoiding the most contaminated fruits and vegetables and only eating the cleanest ones. If consumers get their USDA-recommended 5 daily servings of fruits and veggies from the 15 most contaminated, they could consume an average of 10 pesticides a day. Consumers who eat the 15 least contaminated conventionally grown produce ingest less than 2 pesticides daily. The “dirty dozen” are the foods with the highest concentrations of pesticides and chemicals — even after washing and peeling, so buy organic whenever possible.
