Do you try to hold sneeze or let it go?
I find so many people trying to hold their sneeze and they struggle for a while until sneeze wins :-) Do you like to hold or let it go? Is it bad to hold? I enjoy letting it go
A sneeze always seems to sneak up on me so never have had the luxury of deciding what to do ahead of time.
I always let it go unless if I'm in the public, I would try holding it.
It depends on where I am at the time. If I am in a familiar environment, I dont try to hold my sneeze, but if in a formal setting, I do try to hold it.
I've tried holding sneezes but never had much success so now I just let them go. Sometimes very loudly too.
It can be harmful to hold a sneeze, such as holding your nose and closing your mouth at the same time....My daughter's ear drum busted from the pressure and she had to have surgery to repair it.....just sayin....it can be embarrasing, but better that than bust an ear drum......
I'm one of those tissues ladies who never steps out of the front door without half a box stuffed up her sleeve or in a pocket. The second I feel a sneeze coming on the tissue is out of my sleeve or pocket pronto! However, I have been caught out when a sneeze has developed without prior warning; I hate this because I feel I could be spreading germs everywhere!
Depends where I am. In a meeting or quiet place I hold sneeze, if I am at home alone I let it rip and blow the doors off!
No I don't hold it but cover my face to protect air borne particles over others.
It depends on the situation If I'm on my own or outdoors I just let the sneeze take over it feels good If I am around other people I'll try and hold it back as I don't want to spray people while trying to find a tissue
I let it go..... and you should never hold it because it helps you to throw out the microorganisms from our respiratory tract.
It really depends on where I am at the time I have to sneeze. Most generally, I try to hold it until I can get to where no one else has to suffer. lol
I just let it go.
If around people I try to walk away to avoid spreading germs.
It depends. If I'm at home then i'd let go 'cause it feels good every after sneeze, but on public places, as much as possible I'll hold it 'cause sometimes it comes with little phlegm lol! ...so its very disgusting to let go.
It feels good to simply let it go, but I do still cover my mouth. However, it's not possible all of the time. I'll usually sneeze as cute and quiet as possible if I'm in a public setting, lol. That's the hardest thing to do .. ever!
It depends on the situation. If appropriate I sneeze to get it out of my system. If I need to hold it I find that putting a finger under my nose, parallel to my face, blocking both nostrils, stops the sneeze without "forcing" it.
If I am in a quiet building with lots of people such as a church, I try to hold my sneeze. I hate sneezing when I have food in my mouth as it tends to go everywhere! Otherwise I tend to just let it go.
The only time I try holding a sneeze is when I'm caring for a patient. They are generally already sick and don't need my germs to go along with it. If I am able, I step out of the room really quickly. If I'm not able to hold and not able to step out, then I sneeze into the sleeve of my upper arm.
This area generally doesn't touch much of anything else and is much better than sneezing in your hands if you have no other options. That's what they've taught us to do in the medical field so far. But we all know things are constantly changing, so I'm sure they'll come up with something better soon.
Tis NOT a good idea to try to hold back a sneeze. Your body is taking care of itself in some way....mustn't interfere. You may "quiet" a sneeze if you feel you should.....and certainly shield those around you from the germ-bath.....but coughing and sneezing in the crook of your arm is the way to handle it all!
You are never supposed to hold a sneeze that is a sure way to get a sinus infection
First of all, if you must hold the sneeze, focus on keeping your eyes open. Believe it or not, you will not/can not sneeze with your eyes open. This will at least give you a few extra seconds to find a tissue or step out of a meeting room.
I'd rather sneeze and be done with it, but I think we all need to hold it for a minute when we're in a conversation, on a phone, or looking for some tissues.
Difficult to say and always depends on the situation at the time of sneeze popping up. If it's appropriate I let it go. At times this is not polite or possible and I have to say that I often have a problem keeping it quiet.
I agree with most of the people who answered this question up to now that it all depends on where I am and whom I am with when a sneeze pops up. If I am in a public place with a lot of people around me in close distance such as in a packed meeting room, I will try to hold or just let it go but use a piece of facial tissue or something else to prevent it from affecting anybody close by. If I am alone at home or anywhere else, I just let it go because sneezing is a protective response of your nose when it is irritated by some unhealthy stuff such as cold air, bad smell, etc.
I let it go because holding it may cause nerves to burst. I have read it somewhere.
I hold the sneeze or at least try to do "Damage Control" if I am in a meeting or class. If alone, I do what everyone else here does and FIRE ALL CANNONS!
Never attempt to hold a sneeze. Everyone knows your brains will come out of your ears, if you do.
I will quickly grab my tissue and release it.
I believe it is bad to hold it when it supposes to come out. If in meeting, a quick excuse and then sneeze it out.

What do you think of a man who refuses to hold a woman's purse, even for a minute?Once I was picking out some sheer curtains for someone and I asked him to hold my purse for a minute so that I could more easily look at the drapes and move them around. (The purse handles were too narrow for me to...
