Are you a mouth breather?
I know, silly question. But I’m genuinely curious. Are you a mouth breather?
I am, and I find it much easier to take breaths through my mouth than my nose. The reason why I’m thinking about this is because of masks. Since day 1, I’ve really struggled to wear masks which has, of course, not been ideal for the last year. My oxygen plummets within ten minutes, so I’m better off staying home. If I can’t be outside away from others, I can’t really go out.
But, at the hospital the other day, I realized if I breathed through my nose, I was able to tolerate my mask a little longer. My hot breath wasn’t trapped in the mask, and I’m wondering if that was a factor for my intolerance.
