Winter is here and probably half of the people reading this have a cold.

And as for the other half, it's coming don't you worry.

But it looks as though we have been blowing our nose wrong for years.

According to Business Insider, blowing your nose the way we currently do, could actually make you worse.

The current way "builds pressure inside your nose" leaving you more stuffed up.

It could also lead to "bacterial infections" in your sinuses which will make the problem ten times worse.

When you're blowing your nose from now on, you are advised to "blow lightly through each nostril" one at a time.
