This is just a guide and I am not encouraging you to mew nor claiming that mewing works.

Breathing: breath through your nose at all times (even during exercise) and breathe with your belly, not your chest (unless you are doing breathing exercises that tell you to breathe differently). I recommend using the Buteyko breathing method to be able to breathe through the nose if you are struggling.

POSTURE

Tongue:
have your whole tongue rest against the palate with the tip of the tongue resting against the incisive papilla (tip). Make sure the tip of your tongue isn't touching the central and lateral incisors.

You will have to retract your tongue to fit your whole tongue against the palate if your whole tongue doesn't fit against the palate. If your palate is too narrow to have the whole tongue resting against it, you should thumbpull and/or get a palatal expander before mewing. If you can't breathe with proper tongue posture, let the back of your tongue rest against the palate in repetitions, after 1 repetition, let as little of your tongue drop down, starting from the back, until you can breathe properly, and repeat, your resting tongue posture in the mean time while you can't breathe comfortably is to let as little of your tongue drop down, starting from the back, until you can breathe comfortably.

To get into the proper tongue position, do the following: say the letter N to touch your incisive papilla is. Say any word that ends with -ng to get the middle and back thirds of the tongue against the palate. If that doesn't work, let the tip of your tongue rest against the incisive papilla and have your teeth together/slightly apart and your lips closed, and without moving your teeth, swallow without letting the tip of your tongue slide forwards. When doing the -ng or swallow method, do it while your jaw is closed and also in a

Do what AstroSky is doing there to raise the root of the tongue to make contact with the palate. The muscle he is working when doing so is the palatoglossus muscle.

If that still doesn't work, retract your tongue (little by little) and repeat both methods until it works. If that still doesn't work, you may have a weak tongue in which you need to strengthen your tongue by
, and/or you may have a tongue-tie, in which you should practice Khechari Mudra or get a frenotomy/frenuloplasty.

As you get more experienced in mewing to the point where you can mew without doing the swallow or -ng method, remember to mew by raising your tongue, starting from the root, and ending with the tip.

Lips: your lips should be in a lip seal. Try your best to have as little mentalis muscle engagement as possible. If your lips open when you are sleeping, you should tape your lips shut.
Watch the video to get a proper lip seal. Watch the video at 1.25x speed because Mike Mew speaks slowly.

Teeth: your upper molars and lower molars should be resting together (or as close as possible without the teeth touching any gum tissue if you have malocclusion) in light pressure for roughly 6 hours a day (1st theory says which direction of pressure is best for getting forward growth). For the rest of the day, your molars should be apart by no more than 4mm (or more if your teeth still touch gum tissue).

Body posture: body posture and mewing go hand in hand. A quick fix to get proper posture is to do the following: keep your back straight by looking at your hands, you should have a neutral handgrip with no supination and pronation without using any forearm/biceps/shoulder muscle to pronate/supinate it. Correct your hand position by moving your back. The middle of your neck should be aligned with the middle of your shoulders (think of a vertical line running across the middle of your shoulders, it should be aligned with another vertical line running across the middle of your neck.) Keep a neutral pelvic tilt. Your feet and knees should be parallel to each other when standing. You can manspread when sitting though. Your knees and elbows should be relaxed. When you look down, rotate your head instead of looking down using your neck. You should stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles for this posture to feel natural.

Sleeping posture matters, try to sleep with no pillow or a very thin pillow, and sleep on your side. Water beds/dry flotation beds with no pillow might (not 100% certain) be better than sleeping with a very thin pillow or no pillow on a normal mattress. Don't sleep with your hand under your pillow/jaw/cheekbones. Have a pillow between your legs and make sure your ankle is at a 90° angle. You will naturally change your sleeping position when sleeping, to keep your body in a proper posture when sleeping you should wear a heavy backpack on your back to avoid changing your sleep position. Alternate sides to prevent asymmetry.

Sitting/eating posture matters too, sit in a chair where your hips are above your knee. Make sure you have nothing inside your back pocket. Bring your food to you by using your arms instead of slouching to bring your face to the food. Make sure your elbows are always off the table, this is also known as the

CHEWING

Tongue/jaw: you should only be using your tongue and jaw (this includes lateral jaw movement) to move the bolus instead of using your cheek muscles.

Lips: your lips should always be closed when chewing. When you have to press down your mandible hard when chewing a large bolus, focus on using the orbicularis oris instead of the cheek muscles.

A good way to test if you are using the orbicularis oris instead of the cheek muscles when pressing down the mandible hard is to do the following: put your finger (clean) inside your mouth, outside your teeth, and press down your mandible hard. Your lips should be closed when doing this, except your finger will be inside your mouth when doing so. Feel the cheek muscles, they should not be working. The muscle that should be working instead is the muscle that encircles the lips, which is known as the orbicularis oris.


Teeth: use your molars and premolars to chew the bolus. (second theory says this may not be the best way of using the teeth when chewing for most people)

Chew the bolus until it becomes mushy. Get your teeth in contact in every chew.


SWALLOWING (tutorial on the bottom of this section on how to swallow properly if you are confused)

Tongue: Your tongue should either do or this
We will do the tongue sweep differently: let your tongue slide against your incisive papilla, going down, sweep, and do the swallow shown in the video.

When swallowing solid foods, use the 1st swallow. When swallowing liquids, use the 1st swallow until the liquid is too small to be swallowed with the 1st swallow, when you reach that point, use the tongue sweep. Beginners in mewing will have issues with saliva buildup, a solution to this is to tongue sweep, you will have to use slight buccinator (cheek muscle) activation as tongue sweeping alone will not fix the issue. (Buccinators are the muscles the push your cheeks inward) (The first 2 sentences in this paragraph are from what I believe to have learned from Mike Mew)

If your bolus is too large to be swallowed comfortably in 1 swallow, separate part of the bolus under the tongue until you can swallow comfortably in 1 swallow.

Lips: When swallowing solid foods, make sure your lips are sealed. When drinking liquids from a cup/drinking fountain, you may have your lips slightly open (optional), having the liquid flow to your mouth, and swallow using the 1st swallow until you have to use the tongue sweep, where you should have your lips sealed. When drinking liquids from a straw, make sure your lips are sealed. When swallowing saliva, make sure your lips are sealed.

Teeth: Your teeth should touch (pressure depends on what is most comfortable) when swallowing. If you have to use a straw when drinking, bite down on the straw (pressure depends on the material, Plastic - medium/hard, metal - medium/hard, paper - light) to reduce activation of the cheek muscles.

Facial musculature: No facial musculature should be used when swallowing. This will be hard at first, it will get easier as you progress through.

Do the following if you are a beginner: Take a small sip of water into your mouth. Smile, showing as many teeth as you can, raise your eyebrows as much as you can, then, swallow using the 1st swallow and also using the tongue sweep. Lips should still be open in swallowing here. It's okay if water falls down from your mouth. This swallow is known as the “very cheesy swallow”. You will have to master this before you progress into the next swallow.

Do the following if you are ready to progress into the proper adult swallow: Take a small sip of water into your mouth. Seal your lips, then, swallow using the 1st swallow and also using the tongue sweep without having any facial musculature move. Your lips/cheeks may move because you had an infantile tongue thrust swallow in the past, this is okay. Once you master this swallow, you can now do the proper swallow. This swallow is known as the “Mona Lisa swallow” which is the proper way of swallowing.

OTHER

Tongue:
use your tongue to clean your mouth from tiny food particles stuck between your teeth.

Hyoid: Your hyoid bone should go up when mewing. If you want your hyoid bone to go even higher, do this exercise.

THEORIES RELATED


Summary: Have your molars together and have your lower molars push against your upper molars in an upwards and backward force and make sure your temporal muscles are activated when doing so.


Summary:

There are 2 types of chewing, masseter pattern chewing and temporalis pattern chewing. Masseter pattern chewing will grow the masseters more than the temporalis muscles which will cause a more attractive facial shape. Temporalis pattern chewing will grow the temporalis muscles more than the masseters.

This guide is for suction-based mewing. The only difference with suction-based mewing and pressure-based mewing is that you press your tongue against the palate with pressure instead. If you're 15 or over, I'd recommend suction-based mewing on the soft palate and pressure-based mewing on the hard palate.

Ask questions if you are confused.

Utter suicide of your credibility as a user by making this thread.
like I said in the post. I do believe mewing is cope after puberty. The thread is just a guide if you decide to mew

I appreciate this thread should be in best of the best
But still I think mewing would be only visibly effective when genetic engineers will know how to change bone metabolism. In that case it would be succesful

All I heard when researching is that your molars should stay together, unless for the exception I said in the thread. Overbite, overjet, underbite or anything should mew.

This is just a guide and I am not encouraging you to mew nor claiming that mewing works.

A thread about if mewing works:
https://looksmax.me/threads/why-mewing-might-work-for-some-people.198914/

Check these out before mewing if you use braces or retainers:

Before getting teeth extractions, consider that it may retract your face.

Anatomy related to mewing (read before trying to mew):
View attachment 683546
View attachment 683563

Breathing: breath through your nose at all times (even during exercise) and breathe with your belly, not your chest (unless you are doing breathing exercises that tell you to breathe differently). I recommend using the Buteyko breathing method to be able to breathe through the nose if you are struggling.

POSTURE

Tongue:
have your whole tongue rest against the palate with the tip of the tongue resting against the incisive papilla (tip). Make sure the tip of your tongue isn't touching the central and lateral incisors.

You will have to retract your tongue to fit your whole tongue against the palate if your whole tongue doesn't fit against the palate. If your palate is too narrow to have the whole tongue resting against it, you should thumbpull and/or get a palatal expander before mewing. If you can't breathe with proper tongue posture, let the back of your tongue rest against the palate in repetitions, after 1 repetition, let as little of your tongue drop down, starting from the back, until you can breathe properly, and repeat, your resting tongue posture in the mean time while you can't breathe comfortably is to let as little of your tongue drop down, starting from the back, until you can breathe comfortably.

To get into the proper tongue position, do the following: say the letter N to touch your incisive papilla is. Say any word that ends with -ng to get the middle and back thirds of the tongue against the palate. If that doesn't work, let the tip of your tongue rest against the incisive papilla and have your teeth together/slightly apart and your lips closed, and without moving your teeth, swallow without letting the tip of your tongue slide forwards. When doing the -ng or swallow method, do it while your jaw is closed and also in a

Do what AstroSky is doing there to raise the root of the tongue to make contact with the palate. The muscle he is working when doing so is the palatoglossus muscle.

If that still doesn't work, retract your tongue (little by little) and repeat both methods until it works. If that still doesn't work, you may have a weak tongue in which you need to strengthen your tongue by
, and/or you may have a tongue-tie, in which you should practice Khechari Mudra or get a frenotomy/frenuloplasty.

As you get more experienced in mewing to the point where you can mew without doing the swallow or -ng method, remember to mew by raising your tongue, starting from the root, and ending with the tip.

Lips: your lips should be in a lip seal. Try your best to have as little mentalis muscle engagement as possible. If your lips open when you are sleeping, you should tape your lips shut.
Watch the video to get a proper lip seal. Watch the video at 1.25x speed because Mike Mew speaks slowly.

Teeth: your upper molars and lower molars should be resting together (or as close as possible without the teeth touching any gum tissue if you have malocclusion) in light pressure for roughly 6 hours a day (1st theory says which direction of pressure is best for getting forward growth). For the rest of the day, your molars should be apart by no more than 4mm (or more if your teeth still touch gum tissue).

Body posture: body posture and mewing go hand in hand. A quick fix to get proper posture is to do the following: keep your back straight by looking at your hands, you should have a neutral handgrip with no supination and pronation without using any forearm/biceps/shoulder muscle to pronate/supinate it. Correct your hand position by moving your back. The middle of your neck should be aligned with the middle of your shoulders (think of a vertical line running across the middle of your shoulders, it should be aligned with another vertical line running across the middle of your neck.) Keep a neutral pelvic tilt. Your feet and knees should be parallel to each other when standing. You can manspread when sitting though. Your knees and elbows should be relaxed. When you look down, rotate your head instead of looking down using your neck. You should stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles for this posture to feel natural.

Sleeping posture matters, try to sleep with no pillow or a very thin pillow, and sleep on your side. Water beds/dry flotation beds with no pillow might (not 100% certain) be better than sleeping with a very thin pillow or no pillow on a normal mattress. Don't sleep with your hand under your pillow/jaw/cheekbones. Have a pillow between your legs and make sure your ankle is at a 90° angle. You will naturally change your sleeping position when sleeping, to keep your body in a proper posture when sleeping you should wear a heavy backpack on your back to avoid changing your sleep position. Alternate sides to prevent asymmetry.

Sitting/eating posture matters too, sit in a chair where your hips are above your knee. Make sure you have nothing inside your back pocket. Bring your food to you by using your arms instead of slouching to bring your face to the food. Make sure your elbows are always off the table, this is also known as the

CHEWING

Tongue/jaw: you should only be using your tongue and jaw (this includes lateral jaw movement) to move the bolus instead of using your cheek muscles.

Lips: your lips should always be closed when chewing. When you have to press down your mandible hard when chewing a large bolus, focus on using the orbicularis oris instead of the cheek muscles.

A good way to test if you are using the orbicularis oris instead of the cheek muscles when pressing down the mandible hard is to do the following: put your finger (clean) inside your mouth, outside your teeth, and press down your mandible hard. Your lips should be closed when doing this, except your finger will be inside your mouth when doing so. Feel the cheek muscles, they should not be working. The muscle that should be working instead is the muscle that encircles the lips, which is known as the orbicularis oris.


Teeth: use your molars and premolars to chew the bolus. (second theory says this may not be the best way of using the teeth when chewing for most people)

Chew the bolus until it becomes mushy. Get your teeth in contact in every chew.


SWALLOWING (tutorial on the bottom of this section on how to swallow properly if you are confused)

Tongue: Your tongue should either do or this
We will do the tongue sweep differently: let your tongue slide against your incisive papilla, going down, sweep, and do the swallow shown in the video.

When swallowing solid foods, use the 1st swallow. When swallowing liquids, use the 1st swallow until the liquid is too small to be swallowed with the 1st swallow, when you reach that point, use the tongue sweep. Beginners in mewing will have issues with saliva buildup, a solution to this is to tongue sweep, you will have to use slight buccinator (cheek muscle) activation as tongue sweeping alone will not fix the issue. (Buccinators are the muscles the push your cheeks inward) (The first 2 sentences in this paragraph are from what I believe to have learned from Mike Mew)

If your bolus is too large to be swallowed comfortably in 1 swallow, separate part of the bolus under the tongue until you can swallow comfortably in 1 swallow.

Lips: When swallowing solid foods, make sure your lips are sealed. When drinking liquids from a cup/drinking fountain, you may have your lips slightly open (optional), having the liquid flow to your mouth, and swallow using the 1st swallow until you have to use the tongue sweep, where you should have your lips sealed. When drinking liquids from a straw, make sure your lips are sealed. When swallowing saliva, make sure your lips are sealed.

Teeth: Your teeth should touch (pressure depends on what is most comfortable) when swallowing. If you have to use a straw when drinking, bite down on the straw (pressure depends on the material, Plastic - medium/hard, metal - medium/hard, paper - light) to reduce activation of the cheek muscles.

Facial musculature: No facial musculature should be used when swallowing. This will be hard at first, it will get easier as you progress through.

Do the following if you are a beginner: Take a small sip of water into your mouth. Smile, showing as many teeth as you can, raise your eyebrows as much as you can, then, swallow using the 1st swallow and also using the tongue sweep. Lips should still be open in swallowing here. It's okay if water falls down from your mouth. This swallow is known as the “very cheesy swallow”. You will have to master this before you progress into the next swallow.

Do the following if you are ready to progress into the proper adult swallow: Take a small sip of water into your mouth. Seal your lips, then, swallow using the 1st swallow and also using the tongue sweep without having any facial musculature move. Your lips/cheeks may move because you had an infantile tongue thrust swallow in the past, this is okay. Once you master this swallow, you can now do the proper swallow. This swallow is known as the “Mona Lisa swallow” which is the proper way of swallowing.

OTHER

Tongue:
use your tongue to clean your mouth from tiny food particles stuck between your teeth.

Hyoid: Your hyoid bone should go up when mewing. If you want your hyoid bone to go even higher, do this exercise.

THEORIES RELATED


Summary: Have your molars together and have your lower molars push against your upper molars in an upwards and backward force and make sure your temporal muscles are activated when doing so.


Summary:

There are 2 types of chewing, masseter pattern chewing and temporalis pattern chewing. Masseter pattern chewing will grow the masseters more than the temporalis muscles which will cause a more attractive facial shape. Temporalis pattern chewing will grow the temporalis muscles more than the masseters.

This guide is for suction-based mewing. The only difference with suction-based mewing and pressure-based mewing is that you press your tongue against the palate with pressure instead. If you're 15 or over, I'd recommend suction-based mewing on the soft palate and pressure-based mewing on the hard palate.
