Nose breathing warms & humidifies the incoming air, improves gas exchange in the lungs, naturally activates the diaphragm, and slows down your breath so that the optimal amount of oxygen can be absorbed. Today's Tuesday Tip is a way to ensure that you breathe nasally for at least 7-9 hours a day: Tape your mouth closed at night. Yes, it sounds (and definitely looks) ridiculous! But, this might be the single most important thing you can do for your health. Taping your mouth at night will result in deeper sleep, more energy and focus during the day, less snoring, and will reduce dry mouth and bad breath in the morning. Try it for a few nights (it will probably come off the first 1-2 nights, which is normal) and notice the difference in your energy during the day!
P.S. Don’t tape your mouth shut if you’re sick, after drinking alcohol, if you are taking sedative medications, if you have difficulty using the tape during the day, or if you have difficulty with breathing through your nose in general (consult your physician in that case).
