Downward-Facing Dog
Already stuffed up? This position might feel like you're putting more pressure on your sinuses, but Gottfried says that the release you feel when you stand up actually helps trapped mucus drain from your nasal passages.

Try it: Start on all fours with your hands directly beneath your shoulders. Raise your bottom, straighten your legs (it's okay to have slightly bent knees), and press your hands and feet firmly into the floor. Inhale and exhale for a count of five. Repeat five times. Then, walk your hands in close to your feet and slowly return to standing.
