Morning Start: Your nostrils work one at a time

Your Morning Start for Monday, Oct. 18

Good morning, and happy Monday! Let’s start off your week on a good note.

Fun fact: Your nostrils work one at a time.

One nostril works at a time while we breathe in and out throughout the day, and they switch every few hours. This is called the nasal cycle, a process of alternating congestion and decongestion. At any given moment, if you’re breathing through your nose, one nostril gets the lion’s share of the air while a small amount passing through the other. This is regulated by your autonomic nervous system, which takes care of bodily functions such as your heart rate and digestion.

“My father essentially was like, ‘This is who you can’t be.’ So, anytime I wanted to do drag, I just pushed it aside – this isn’t something that I want to do.”
