Strengthen Your Breath and Weaken Your Snore If you have a difficult time with snoring at night, it may be because you're not breathing enough during the day. Most people fail to recognize the connection between these two things. The fact of the matter is, there are many different reasons why we might be snoring but if we are not breathing properly during the day and exercising this part of our body, we may have a difficult time with snoring at night. At the very least, exercising our breathing patterns during the day is going to help us with our snoring if not eliminate it entirely. The first thing that you should do is to practice deep breathing exercises every day. Whenever you are relaxed, breathe normally and take note of how you are breathing. If you are breathing is shallow and your chest is moving in and out, you're not breathing properly. If you are using your diaphragm and you notice that your stomach is going in and out while you are breathing, you are breathing properly. Regardless of how you breathe, shallow or deeply, you should work on consciously improving this regularly. Remember, breath is life and if you're able to get more breath into your body, your life will improve in many different ways. You may also want to work on improving your breathing by doing specific breathing exercises. For example, spend a few minutes several times a day breathing in very deeply through your nose and then exhaling slowly through your mouth. Not only will this help to exercise this part of your body and may reduce your snoring considerably, it will also help you to get additional oxygen which will raise your level of alertness and may actually help you to lose some weight. Schedule two or three times during the day in order to do this and you will notice some changes in how well you sleep at night. There are also some other specific deep breathing exercises that you may want to try. Starting out slowly, however, will allow your body to acclimate to the new type of breathing that you are doing. Most people recognize differences within a day or two and sometimes immediately after starting these types of exercises. Try them for yourself and see if they don't improve the amount and type of snoring that you do on a nightly basis.
