Why would you breathe through your left nostril and not your right?

Either nostril can become blocked by mucus or swelling of the nasal lining. In some cases, the pathway to the nasal turbinates (rear passages) can become closed and result in only one nostril bringing air in. You could try saline spray (non-irritating) or see your doctor about using decongestants or other treatments to enable both sides of the nose to take in air. Rarely, this could require medication to reduce thickening of the turbinate walls.

How do you make sleeping easier?

Don't eat within 2 hours before bedtime, and have a light dinner everynight (the lighter, the better). Don't drink too much water before bed, because you don't want a full bladder overnight. Sleep in a very quiet surrounding with a comfortable bed and a fluffy pillow. You can take a nice warm bath before going to bed. Stretch a little to relax your muscles. A peaceful mind is key. Forget all stress and troubles, because you need to be calm to sleep well and long. Inhale through your left nostril and exhale through your right nostril. Then, inhale through your right nostril and exhale through your left nostril. Repeat about 5 times to balance your brain's oxygen levels for better peace of mind.
