I haven’t been updating this experiment particularly frequently, because to honest, there isn’t a whole lot to say.
I’ve gone to bed with the silly looking sticker on my face for the last 4 days and I have to say that my wife must love me to put up with my silliness.
This is the longest number of days in a row that I’ve worn a nasal strip. I’m finding that my nose is getting a bit irritated, but it’s just slightly redder than normal, so that might even be my skin reacting to the winter weather.
While I’ve noticed the strips help me more when I’m sick, I have yet to see a substantial result in this experiment. Perhaps the small difference they make is MUCH more noticeable when I’m sick and need the additional help.
So, the update for today is that the strips aren’t hurting my sleep quality or sinus situation in the morning, but they do not appear to be substantially helping me either.
We’re not finished the experiment yet though, so this isn’t yet a final conclusion.
