So I have a cold and a really bad stuffy nose. I am using 1000 tissues a day and inhaling steam and slathering myself in vaporub, but everything just provides temporary relief and after a minute my nose will clog up again.
So I tried doing these excersizes and they helped a lot. First is holding your nose and walking around for as long as you can, then breathing only through your nose as slowly as possible.
Jumping uo and down helps a lot too

I couldn't sleep at night because of my bad stuffy nose so, I just applied toothpaste over my nasal area and right above my upper lip. After applying the toothe paste I could breathe much better.

Try a hot shower. It usually works for me. Also, drink lots of tea and/or chicken broth. Also, try a warm compress on the bridge of your nose.

Do jumping jacks for 1-2 minutes. Or you can chew on a very minty gum or have anything minty in your mouth such as a listerine mouth spray, etc... Hope u get better.

Jump on mini trampoline for 1 minute. Good for lymph drainage. I am usually clear in 30-40 seconds.

Brush your teeth with mint toothpaste while you lean forward a little. At first it almost burns your throat but then Atleast one nostril will give way. If your like me being able to breath out of one nostril is better than none. Relief time always varies for me.

I saw this remedy on a website tried it and saw it worked pretty well so thought I'd share it Pinch your nose and walk fast with your blocked nose pinched and your mouth closed all the time. (You need to accumulate CO2 to dilate arteries and arterioles). You will probably be able to make around 20-30 steps. While walking, you should hold your breath until a strong urge to breathe. Then sit down with your spine totally straight and focus on your breath. After you release your nose, you need to keep the mouth closed (no gasping for air) and start reduced breathing (breathing little bit less than before this exercise). How? Instead of taking a big (or deep) inhalation take a smaller one, but using the diaphragm only, and then relax all muscles for exhalation, especially the upper chest and all other respiratory muscles. Make another shorter inhalation and again relax. With each inhalation, practice this reduced breathing while remaining relaxed.
