We all have two "nose-holes" (nostrils), right?
Most of the time for me, it seems to me that one nostril is more "stuffed up" than the other... in other words, I breathe better out of one than the other.
Currently, I'm breathing better out of my left nostril. Don't ask me why, but my right nostril is a bit more stuffed up.
So, HERE's YOUR TEST: Please put your finger on one of your nostrils and push it completely closed so you can't breathe out of that nostril. Breathe a few breaths, then do the same out to the opposite nostril....
Now, here's where the POLL question comes in:
Did you breathe better out of your RIGHT or LEFT nostril? Or, was it the same out of both (no difference)?
PLEASE VOTE NOW.
Also, please comment on the following:
1. Please explain to me why you think that one nostril is better for breathing out of than the other.
2. Why does this happen, if one is better than the other for you?
3. If one is better than the other, has it always been that way for you, or do your nose-holes switch off, taking turns on which one is better for breathing through?
Inquiring minds want to know the truth behind this nose-hole mystery.
