5 Simple Tips to Stop Mouth Breathing

Mouth breathers are often the laughing stocks of others. But you know it is not that funny if you belong to this group. For some, it is a matter of life and death.

The following are some simple ways you can stop breathing through your mouth.

  1. Check if you are doing it

The first step in eliminating the habit is to know if you are doing it. Knowing it is quite simple. If your mouth is dry when you wake up, you breathe through your mouth.

  1. Know the root cause

Mouth breathing can happen to numerous reasons. Given below are just a few among them.

  • Obstruction in the nose: Air fails to flow smoothly through your nose
  • As a habit: You may be used to breathing through your mouth since childhood.
  • It is natural during pregnancy: Mouth breathing is quite normal during the third trimester of your pregnancy. If it is not your habit, it will stop on its own.
  1. Know why nasal breathing is important

Know that nose is the organ made for breathing. It has a 4-stage filtration mechanism. The hair filters and helps the body to eliminate harmful tiny particles in the air. Mucus produces an enzyme designed to destroy the virus and bacteria in the air. The sinuses and turbinates warm up the air that gets into the nose. This process produces nitric oxide. And that is a must for improve functioning of the lungs.

Mouth breathing will also lead to imbalance in the amount of carbon dioxide in your lung. Remember, co2 is a must for them to do their jobs. When it gets too low, your brain starts taking action. It will narrow all the tubes in your body. The desperate action will affect every single process of your body. Remember, it depends on tubes for all its activities. From sweating to bowel movement, everything gets affected. You can imagine the consequences.

  1. Use a tape

Now that you know why you should breathe through your nose, it is time to help yourself. Begin your effort with a tape. Take a few sticky papers and paste a tape over your mouth. Just make sure that your mouth is fully closed before doing this. You may have to modify the strategy as per your requirements. Discuss your plan with a dentist. The expert will suggest ways to make good use of the method.

  1. Practice exercises to clear your nose

There are numerous exercises to clear nose. Do a research online and choose the one that would work for you. Do it regularly until breathing through nose becomes a habit for you.

You can also try myofunctional therapy. This aims at repatterning the muscles. And it involves exercises and techniques to help you modify your behavior. As a result, you learn to position your tongue properly when chewing. Right posture and proper positioning of your head & neck too are some of the things it aims to attain.

Close your mouth at night. Your body will thank you for the effort.

Choosing the right oil for your hair

Market offers an astounding number of options when it comes to the oil for your tresses. Choosing one from among them is definitely a daunting task. Experts generally recommend going natural. Here are a few tips to remember when choosing an oil for your shiny tresses.

  1. Know what your hair needs most

Know the type of hair you have. If it is dry by nature, use those oil that penetrate into your hair. The highly recommended among these are coconut, olive and avocado. Doing this will prevent loss of moisture from your hair. Avoid the oils that stay like coats atop your hair. These will simply make your hair dull and greasy.

  1. Consider your scalp

The next thing that deserves your attention is your scalp. A dry or itchy scalp needs an oil that helps it maintain the moisture. It should also be able to nourish it inside out. Natural oils are known to work wonders in this regard.

If yours is a flaky scalp, you need an oil that contains anti-microbial solutions. The oil should also help you hide that flakiness. The highly recommended choice for flaky scalp is coconut oil. And an oily scalp requires an oil that is light and doesn’t stick on the hair. Go for argan oil.

  1. Set up a goal

Determine what you want to get from your choice oil. Read the labels carefully and go for the one that works in the way you expect.

Finally, be willing to experiment. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars buying gallons of your favorite oil. Choose a few essential oils that are not hard on your hair. Combine them with your favorite hair oil and use. You will get benefited from all of them.


God Calls Moses

Moses continues to take care of the flocks of the priest of the region, his father-in-law. His name is Jethro. One day, he leads the flock to the far end of the desert. He comes to Horeb, the mountain of God.

An angel of God appears to Moses. Moses sees a flame in the midst of the bush. He looks to it and observes that a flame is blazing. But it is not burning the bush.

Moses feels that he should go and see the strange sight. He wants to know why the fire is not burning up the bush.

God sees it and calls out to him from the middle of the bush. Moses responds in the affirmative. God commands him not to come closer. Moses should take off his sandals. The place he stands is holy.

God tells him that he is the God of their ancestors; the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Abraham. Moses is frightened. He covers his face.

Yahweh then continues. He tells him that he has seen the misery of his people in Egypt. He has heard their cry for help because of their taskmasters. God is aware of the sufferings of his people. Yahweh has now come down to save them from the clutches of their Egyptian masters.

God will take the Israelites to a country broad and rich. The country is the home of the Hittites, Canaanites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites. It is a place flowing with milk and honey.

God repeats that the Israelites’ cry for help has reached Him. He has also seen how cruelly Egyptians oppress them.

God wants to send Moses to Pharaoh to bring the Israelites out of that country.










Moses (Continued)

There lives a priest in the region. He has seven daughters. They always come here to fill their troughs with water to water their father’s flocks.

Some shepherds prevent them from taking water. Moses springs into action. He helps them and waters the flocks.

They return to their father earlier than usual. When he inquires about it, they talk about Moses. An Egyptian protected them from the shepherds, they say. He even watered their flocks and filled their troughs.

Their father then wants to know where he is. Why they left him there, he asks them. He wants him to eat with them.

Moses obliges. He stays with the priest. The priest also gives him Zipporah, one of his seven daughters in marriage.

She gives birth to a son and Moses names him Gershom. He is a foreigner in a foreign land, he feels.

Time flies by. The king of Egypt dies. The Israelites cry for help from the death of their slavery. Their groans reach God.

Yahweh hears the groaning of the Israelites. He remembers His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God takes not of it.
