Clear Your Airways To Improve Mood
When your airways don’t feel clear and open, you’re uncomfortable and moody. It can be hard to focus on your tasks if you feel like you are not operating at your best. If you want to promote clear airways, there are also natural methods to try.
A good method to try to help is a facial massage or acupressure.It is very important to have proper instruction initially with this practice to make sure that you’re doing it correctly and not injuring yourself. Do your research and consult with a professional before you attempt to do this on your own. Once you learn the proper techniques, this is very effective at providing nearly instant relief.
There are several pressure points on the face, hand, and arm that can be stimulated with your fingers that will help to unblock your nasal passages and allow air to flow more easily. It is an easy practice to do yourself. Apply gentle pressure and be mindful of delicate skin. You don’t want this to hurt. Use lotion or oil to help your hands glide across your skin so you’re not pulling and causing any damage. If you have any issues that don’t allow you to use your fingers, you can use an object such as a pencil eraser. Either press or gently rub in a circular motion. You can look in a mirror as you do this to ensure you are getting the points correctly.
You can also do certain kinds of facial massage such as a lymphatic drainage massage that will get things moving . There are skilled practitioners you can go to for this treatment, or you can learn to do this method yourself as well. When these methods are done correctly they are both effective and free of any side effects.
Diffusers for essential oil can be used in a room to provide a soothing vapor.The oils you add to a diffuser can have a big impact on the air and environment around you. Oils such as peppermint and eucalyptus can help to open the nasal passages and promote feelings of easy breathing. Essential oils can also keep the air clean.
Steam is a fast and easy way to open the nasal passages. You can take a long hot shower and breathe in the steam or enjoy a nice warm cup of tea. As an added benefit, you can choose to drink peppermint tea to get twice as much from the steam and the menthol. Another way to use steam is by filling a pot with hot water and leaning over it to breathe the steam in. Just be careful with this one so you don’t accidentally burn yourself. The moisture from the steam will also aid in the relief of irritation.
As you can see, there are various ways you can help open airways. Try some of them and see how fast you can feel relief.
