When a person snores, he could experience getting up in the middle of the night because of his own noise.

The first step should be opening and closing the mouth. This must be done to the full extent like when you’re shouting to the utmost and closing the mouth with lips tightly meeting each other.
The next mouth position is crease your lips as if you are about to kiss or when pointing at something else without utterance. Hold on to this position for about ten counts and then relax.
And then extend your lips into that big, big smile. Exaggerate it to as much as your lips can reach. Hold on to that position for another ten counts. Again, relax.
Repeat the procedures 2 and 3. Pucker, hold, smile and hold. Do this for another set of ten counts.
With your mouth wide open, pucker without closing your jaws. Hold on to that position and relax after ten counts.
To counteract that, press your lips tightly together. For the same counts, hold.
Follow that step by making a slurping sound just like when you are sipping your juice. Firmly, stay on that position with your lips closed.
Then, stick out the tongue the way kids do. But hold it straight out to your mouth, restricting it from moving to sides. Hold and relax. While pointing straight ahead, try to reach a farther distance each try. Repeat this step several times.
Try to reach the corners of your mouth by sticking out your tongue. Hold it in each corner and relax. Repeat for several times.
Using the tip of your tongue, try to reach your chin to the farthest extension that you can get. Hold.
Stick out your tongue, in and out of your mouth repeatedly and as fast as possible.
Flick out your tongue to the corners of your mouth. Then repeat this with more speed.
Finally, move your tongue in a circling manner. Make sure that your tongue is in contact with the lips.
