When it rains it pours. We’ve all heard it but today really symbolized that statement. Freezing fog with black ice this morning made the drive to work about as fun as a week in hell with Paris Hilton and no ear plugs… wait! Sorry, that’s the same thing.
Freezing fog, Chip Kelly leaving Oregon, the recession, politics and on top of that I find out that I have been blowing my nose wrong my entire life. There is a right way? Yes Virginia, there is a correct way to blow your nose. (These are the kinds of things that keep me up at night)
Below you will find valuable information that could save your life. Granted it’s not very likely but all the same once and for all we will be on the same page when it comes to blowing your schnoz.
Here’s the full story from The Daily Mail.
Here’s a theory on why you seem to be stuck with a PERMENANT COLD this winter. You’re making yourself sicker because you’re blowing your nose wrong.
–Yes, you can blow your nose wrong. A doctor in London says that when you blow BOTH nostrils into a Kleenex as hard as you can, you can shoot some of your mucus into your sinuses. And that can lead to a sinus infection.
–The RIGHT way to blow your nose is to gently blow each nostril individually.
–He also says that neti pots don’t really work . . . but using a decongestant spray actually will make you feel better. Decongestant sprays work about four to five times more effectively than decongestant tablets.
My job here is done. Next up world peace.
