When stressed, hold your breath as, it will help negate the effects of nervousness.

Perform a series of small breath holds following these instructions:
•  Take a small, silent breath in and out through your nose.
•  Hold your breath for 2 to 5 seconds.
•  After each breath hold, breathe normally for around 10 seconds. Do not interfere with your breathing.
•  Continue to do a small breath hold followed by normal breathing for around 10 seconds.
•  Practice this exercise for at least 15 minutes.

To reduce and eventually eliminate breathing through the mouth at night, follow these guidelines:
•  Avoid eating within the 2 hours before sleep, as the process of digestion increases breathing.
•  Keep your bedroom cool and airy. A hot and stuffy room will only serve to increase breathing.
•  Sleep on your front or left side; never on your back
•  Ensure that your mouth is closed while you try to get to sleep (you can wear 1-inch Micropore tape across the lips). Pak Destiny
