Having a cold is not fun. Your eyes get all watery, you can’t stop coughing and sneezing, your body aches, your throat is sore and scratchy, and your nose… your poor, poor nose! It’s all runny and stuffy. And that’s perhaps the worst part because having a plugged up nose makes it so difficult to go to sleep and get the rest that you so desperately need. So what do we do? There are the usual “solutions:” blow our nose over and over, take some cold medicine, use a nose spray, turn on a humidifier, take a hot shower, drink plenty of liquids… heck, maybe we even bare the uncomfortable process of using a neti pot (draining your sinuses). But folks, here are a couple other ways that are particularly noteworthy because of their effectiveness and their simplicity. They sound so weird but they actually work! Give it a try and let us know if it worked for you too!
