There are many people who are looking to stop snoring these days; however most of them would like to do it in a way which is healthy and without the need to include any surgery or medical devices.
There are a variety of exercises you can do to stop snoring but below are three of the most popular.
Try and follow these exercises every day and give yourself and your bed partner a good nights sleep.
Not surprisingly, this is the most popular exercise to stop you from snoring.
The key is to form your initial kissing position with your mouth, preferably with someone else or you can use the back of your hand and then hold yourself in that position for 10 seconds.
With regular practice this exercise will strengthen the muscles in your mouth and throat.
Tighter muscle tone in your airway system means there will be less muscle sag which reduces the chance of blocking the air flow.
As the tone increases it makes the muscles stiffer and less susceptible to vibration which is how the snoring sound is formed from the vibrating tissue.
This is the easiest of all the exercises and one of the most effective.
This has similar effects to kissing but with the added benefit of strengthening and toning the outside muscles of your face as well.
This is a great exercise for Women snorers as they get to have firm and youthful looking skin whilst at the same time reducing their snoring problem.
It’s important to hold the smile for about 10/15 seconds and also to practice this as much as possible.
As we all know it’s your tongue that gets in the way of your air passage and causes you to snore so this exercise is aimed at strengthening the tongue.
The exercise works by you extending your tongue out as far as possible with the aim of touching your nose and then your chin.
It doesn’t matter if you are unable to actually touch your chin or tongue as it’s the process itself that strengthens the muscles.
It’s important not to overdo this exercise as you may end up suffering from lock jaw or a sore tongue at the base.
Once you master the up and down motion then the advanced position is to move your tongue from left to right.
Again it’s important to hold for 10 seconds in each targeted position.
After a while the tongue muscles will strengthen as well as other muscles in your mouth which will all contribute to less ‘floppy’ bits getting in the way of your air flow.
