Nasal allergy?: It is impossible to see for sure what may be the cause but I suspect that allergy likely places a role. If you have access to nasal steroid spray, give this a try.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Constant blocked nose, postnasal drip and short of breath after light excercise and sometimes when sitting, also suffer from anxiety. What could it be?

Anxeity ; Breathing: Sounds like a chicken ; egg situation. Blocked nose and breathing issues can make us anxious and being anxious can make us feel like we are short of breath.
