Shut Your Mouth.

Mouth breathing is a new phenomenon for human beings. Nearly all animals breathe nasally except when in distress or ill. It’s no different for us.

I’m a nasal breather by day. I figured I slept with my mouth closed too. Then I started mouth-taping at night and got a big surprise.

I’m not the only one. Check out this article, whose author found:

I was slightly nervous about the idea of having my mouth taped while sleeping. I wasn’t sure if I could adequately breathe through my nose when I was asleep, but I quickly realized that breathing through my nose felt natural and would unlikely be an issue.

So I taped my mouth closed and went to bed. The next day, I woke up and was alive. To be honest, I didn’t feel a world of difference but decided to stick with it; within a few days, I could sense improvement. I was waking up feeling rested, like I had slept, and without any aches and pains. I also stopped snoring. My girlfriend was super-appreciative of this change.

The basis for mouth taping at night overlaps with the research supporting the breathwork we teach. Get in touch to improve the habit more deeply ingrained than any other: how you breathe.
