For the 40 million Americans who suffer from seasonal allergies, spring is a season of misery. But it doesn’t have to be. There are painless practices you can follow every day to reduce your symptoms, starting in your own home.

After a long, gray winter, you might have the urge to throw open your doors and windows at the first sign of spring.

But don’t do it. Keep your windows closed.  You’re not keeping out fresh air, you’re keeping out pollen.

And if you don’t have an air conditioner, get one.

“With the air conditioning on and the windows closed you can cut down on the indoor pollen count by 90-percent or more,” says David Lang, MD, an allergist with the Cleveland Clinic, adding  “air conditioning in buildings and in cars is very important.”

Check the local pollen count and plan your outdoor activities for low pollen hours. “Daylight stimulates plants to release their pollen,” according to Dr. Lang, so pollen count is generally highest in the early morning hours between 5 and 10am.

If you have to mow the lawn, cover your face with a mask and .

Change your clothes and shower as soon as you get home to shed the pollen that sticks to you. And never hang your wash outside to dry. Use the dryer.

While there is no cure for seasonal allergies, these easy steps can help you welcome spring, not dread it.
