5 Tips for the Perfect Snot Rocket
Snot rocket, mucus missile, farmer’s blow…
Ultimately, it can get anywhere. So just have an idea of where it’s headed. And, if you’re walking, make sure your timing is good. Getting it on your shoe, leg, or trekking pole is never fun.
2. Engage your core
For a good/clean release, you’ve got to put some power behind it. Think about blowing your nose into a tissue. Now, times that by ten. Use your core. Take a deep breath and get some force behind that blow.
GO FOR IT! Don’t hold back. No half-sies. You’re all in at this point. DO IT!
4. Keep a bandana nearby
You can’t get it perfect every time. It can be messy. If you don’t have a booger rag, trees and leaves work well too.
5. Mentally keep progress of execution and variances of snot consistency
It’s a practiced skill that will take dedication and focus. With each success and failure, think about your technique. Why was it perfect and clean? Or, how did it get all over your face? Take mental notes on your form and get real friendly with your boogers. The more you know, the cleaner your nose.
I encourage you to breath easy.
