Is Mouth Breathing Really That Bad?
Why does it matter how we breathe?
Our body takes care of our breathing automatically, so you’d think we’d default to breathing in the way that’s best for us. Unfortunately, that’s not necessarily the case. “Every time we need to breathe, we do it unconsciously. But the problem is, we could be doing it improperly or inefficiently, and that could be our habit,” says Nestor. “And then we carry this habit around with us our whole lives, and we can suffer from some very serious health consequences if we aren't breathing correctly.”
