Clear Your Sinuses In 20 Seconds With Your Tongue And Your Thumb

Blocked sinuses are no fun, especially when the problem frequently requires taking a pill. Redditor gymfork points to a clever acupressure method that can solve the problem in just 20 seconds:

Push your tongue against the top of your mouth and place a finger between your eyebrows and apply pressure. Hold it for about 20 seconds and your sinuses will begin to drain.

Biggest, scariest, solid block of bloody Mucus (sorry) came out and I CAN BREATHE. Goodnight❤
