Tongue Exercises to Finally Stop Snoring
Maybe it's you, maybe it's your hubby or your wife? Someone in your house is probably a snorer! And, I'm sure you thought you tried everything! From those crazy nasal strips to that T-shirt with a tennis ball in the back! But nothing has worked, right? Until now!
A recent study in Brazil found that doing a few simple tongue exercises each day can help.
Test subjects did them three times a day, and after three months, they were snoring 36% less. And the volume at which they snored dropped 59%! That's impressive
Here are five of the exercises - you're supposed to do them 20 times each.
1. With your mouth open, push your tongue against the roof of your mouth, and slide it backwards 20 times.
2. Keep the tip of your tongue against your bottom teeth, and try to push the BACK of your tongue down.
3. Suck your tongue against the roof of your mouth. It sounds weird, but try it . . . just push your tongue up, creating suction, and use your entire tongue to push against the roof of your mouth. Then repeat it 19 more times.
4. Lift your soft palate 20 times. It's on the roof of your mouth at the very back. If you feel around with your tongue, it's where the top of your mouth starts feeling soft. And it tends to lift up when you yawn, smile, sing, or say "AH" like you're at the doctor.
5. If you're not into the tongue thing, you can also press your cheek away from your teeth 10 times on each side.
