Asthma is one of the most common respiratory illnesses in the United States, and one common trigger becomes more prevalent in winter.
If you have asthma and intend on spending time outdoors, be sure to cover your nose and mouth with a scarf to keep from breathing in the cold, dry air.
Drink caffeinated black or green tea or coffee to help open your airways. Caffeine has the ability to improve breathing function and can help with an asthma attack when you don’t have your inhaler with you.

Hint for Part 4: someone can experience mood changes which can cause this seasonal disorder! Hmm what could it be? 🤔
In the mornings, I’ve been drinking warm tea to get a good start to my day!
I’ve actually been brewing sage and thyme for my tea and adding the tea packets to that brew. I’ll normally add Yogi’s “Cold Season” or “Detox” tea for added benefits. Here are the awesome benefits of drinking sage and thyme tea!
Benefits of Sage Tea
Sage is used to help with stomach pain, bloating and heartburn. Sage is also said to improve memory, alertness, and attention in healthy adults.
Benefits of Thyme Tea
Thyme has antioxidant properties, soothes coughs and congestion, and relieves gas and bloating. Thyme is also rich in iron, vitamin K, manganese, and calcium!
If you are someone who has digestive problems or if you just need something to wake you up other than coffee, you should try sage and/or thyme tea!
*Make sure to always check with your physician before adding anything new to your diet.
