In this cold and flu season, we all know how annoying a stuffy nose could be. Your nose drips and runs; you sound funny when you talk; and just when you want to blow your nose to finally breathe again, nothing comes out. Many people mistakenly think a stuffy nose is the result of too much mucus in your nasal passages. A stuffy or clogged nose is actually caused by inflamed blood vessels in your sinuses. These irritated blood vessels are usually caused by a cold, the flu, allergies, or a sinus infection. Whatever is causing your stuffed-up nose, here are ways to get your nose unclogged so you can feel—and breathe—better.
Amy Rushlow from prevention.com tells us to use our tongue to press against the tip of your mouth and let the index finger alternately touch your forehead. This rocks a bone in the head back and forth and allows everything to become de-clogged.
For the next tip, you will need to tilt your head back, hold your breath for as long as you possibly can and pinch your nose. With this method, the brain quickly realizes that it is not getting enough oxygen and goes into survival mode to get everything back to normal.
Now this is too simple and beyond cool.
