This week on the KTDY morning show, Debbie Ray and I talked about tongue exercises that will help you reduce snoring.  People who do these exercises each day reduced snoring 36% without medicines, masks, sprays or contraptions.

A study out of Brazil found that certain tongue exercises each day will help you and your partner sleep better.  Not only did the people who did these exercises snore 36% less, but the volume of their snoring was reduced by 59%.


Steps To  Reduce Snoring From

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.
