are you a nose or mouth breather at night?
Did you know HOW we breathe affects our sleep?
That’s right! Mouth breathing affects the oxygen to the brain, how deeply we sleep and even increases snoring and sleep apnea.
Many of us feel stressed out, overworked, and overstimulated during our day to day lives, which leaves us in a chronic state of fight or flight. When we are in this state we are more likely to breathe through our mouths and upper lungs.
Breathing in and out through the nose helps us take fuller, deeper breaths, which stimulates the lower lung to distribute greater amounts of oxygen throughout the body and to the brain. The lower lung is also associated with our parasympathetic nerve system, which is responsible for calming the body and mind which allows the body to enter into a deeper sleep.
Mouth Taping at night is one method that promotes nose breathing which can drastically improve your sleep and reduce snoring. It also trains you to be more of a nose breather during the day, which can reduce stress, brain fog and increase concentration.
Mouth Taping is great because it:
- Produces Nitric Oxide – A gas that kills bad bacteria in airborne particles
- Activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System – Reduces Stress & Anxiety
- Helps to maintain optimal blood oxygen levels – Required for focus, strength and stamina
- Reduces Snoring, Dry Mouth & Nasal Congestion
- Promotes Nose Breathing
- Improves Sleep Quality
Once you transition to nose-breathing, you will immediately notice deeper, more restful sleep without snoring. When we can breathe through our nose effectively and efficiently, our heart rate decreases as the amount of adrenaline in our body also decreases. A full night of nose-breathing will drastically improve the oxygen level in your blood, and therefore reduce the amount of brain fog you experience in the morning.
