Your Cold Nose Is a Sign You’re Working Too Hard?
I just assumed the reason my nose is FREEZING right now is because of the weather. Turns out that’s not it. My nose is freezing because I work too hard. Yeah. That must be it.
According to a new study out of the University of Nottingham in England, the temperature of your nose is directly connected to how hard your brain is working.
The more mentally exhausted people were, the colder their noses got, regardless of the weather.
Why? The researchers think it’s because your brain is using most of the blood you’ve got available when you’re working hard . . . so there’s not much left for the rest of your face.
