Sleep better and quieter through snoring exercises
Exercise, as everybody knows, is good for you helping you tone muscle and burn calories. However, did you know that there are actually exercises that you can use to target your snoring enabling you and your significant other to get a better night’s sleep? While these exercises might not totally cure your snoring problem, it can help dramatically decrease it and give you a better night’s rest.
What causes snoring?
Loose tissues around your nasal passages, mouth and throat tend to cause snoring. As you sleep, these loose tissues can end up blocking your airways forcing you to breathe harder, which causes the tissues to flap about and vibrate thus causing the familiar sawing logs sound that your loved ones know so well. If you go to the doctor with a snoring problem, they might suggest a surgical procedure to help tighten up these loose tissues, decreasing the amount of flapping helping to eliminate the vibrations emanating from your air passages.
Snoring exercises target the areas around your mouth, toning them so that they stay firm as you sleep and can lead to the same results as a surgical procedure. There are different exercises for each set of oral muscles and developing a regular exercise routine can bring about a positive change in your sleep habits.
The snoring exercises
Here are some snorcerizes that you can try that are designed to help you reduce your snoring. Try them for a period of time to see if they bring about results.
Close your mouth so that your molars are lightly touching each other, now mover your jaw around in a gum chewing motion without opening your lips. Try adding a “mmmm” sound to the routine for added benefit.
Start with your moth closed and molars lightly touching, then open your mouth into a wide yawn like position being careful not to overstretch your jaw. The roof of your mouth should rise, opening your airways. Hold it then close your jaw again. Repeat.
Stick out your tongue like a petulant child going “nya, nya”, hold for five seconds then retract it. Repeat it a few times. Then, do it again, but this time whip you tongue in and out as quickly as you can like a frog catching flies.
Tongue around the world
Stick out your tongue. Stretch it from side to side touching the corners of your lips, then stretch it up towards your nose and then down towards your chin, stretching it out as far as possible. Now, dotongue circles touching your lips all the way around, first clockwise then counter clockwise.
Doing these snoring exercises can help decrease, even eliminate snoring in some people, but not everyone. It ultimately depends on your exact condition. It is not advisable to abandon any medical devices that your doctor gave you in lieu of these exercises if you happen to suffer from sleep apnea, however you might want to go in for a re-evaluation after doing these exercises for some time. Like any exercise, it takes time and commitment to make a difference and you will need to keep them up if you wish to remain snore free.
