Out of all the mistakes that new mewers are making or even experience ones per say, I have jot down 5 common ones which you need to know about. Mewing is more than a habit, it’s a lifestyle and thus tiny mistakes can cause a lot of trouble not to just your cosmetic appearance but also your internal facial structure. Thus, it’s crucial to mew correctly for overall facial structure well being.

Here are five common mewing mistakes that people make:

Mewing Mistake #1 – Breathing with an open mouth

Lol! Not breathing in general, (I’m no Thanos) but breathing with an open mouth. It’s a terrible mistake that majority of the people are making. If you’re one of them, know that it will have a negative impact on not only your facial structure but your health as well.

Funny thing is that majority of the people we know have spent their whole life breathing while their mouth’s open. A little research puts everything into perspective and helps realise about the advantages of nasal breathing and the usage of diaphragm in doing so. Now coming to the mewing context, you are not supporting your facial muscles through breathing with an open mouth.

Mewing Mistake #2 – Not breathing through diaphragm

Studies prove that breathing while using your diaphragm helps you stay calm composed and collected throughout the day. It’s absolutely great! Belly should expand when you breathe in and retract when you breathe out through nose. Nasal breathing with heavy diaphragm influence has numerous advantages and is far better than breathing through your mouth.

Though improper lifestyle and eating habits does lead to mewing hassles, you can jump all these hurdles. Start off by using your diaphragm for breathing followed by sheer determination and commitment (Because everybody loves motivation, even Samuel Tarley)

Mewing Mistake #3 – Grinding your teeth

One of the most common mistakes that mewers make is when they try to assert too much pressure when starting off. Mewing isn’t about grinding your teeth and pressuring your jaws in order to attain a proper structure. Mewing involves a relaxed posture where your upper set of teeth calmly rest on your lower ones. So remember, clench your teeth but don’t exert too much pressure on them.

If you have difficulty in understanding mewing, you can simply follow the mewing formula. It will help you mew almost instantaneously. Even clenching should just involve placing your teeth in the comfortable position.

Mewing Mistake #4 – Entire tongue should touch the palate 

I had made certain errors when I started mewing in the past. One of the mistakes I made was just touching the tip of my tongue to the roof of my mouth. As I kept learning, I realised that I was doing it wrong for more than a month. So, how did I fix it? I researched and learnt that a proper mewing posture involves placing your entire tongue against the roof of your mouth (palate).

It can sound difficult and improbable at first but it will become a habit in no time. (Trust me). Simple way to do it is to, spell the alphabet ‘S’, you’ll automatically find the back portion of your tongue touching the palate. Move that all the way to the front and you can even use a chewing for assistance. Bottom line is making sure that the whole surface of the tongue is touching your palate. By doing so, your tongue is able to work the maxilla i.e. your jaw.

Mewing Mistake #5 –  Inconsistency in Mewing

In arguably, the plague to our health, mental and physical condition can be rooted to inconsistency. If we eat, drink, sleep and exercise regularly, we won’t have three-quarters of the health issues we currently suffer from. Similar to other transformation processes, mewing requires patience and consistency. You may develop your bicep muscles way before your jawline.

Remember, mewing takes time. Results won’t come overnight, you have to work towards it. In fact, mewing requires so much effort and dedication that you have to set the correct tongue posture even when you’re not paying attention. i.e. subconsciously.


These were five common mewing mistakes mewers make when they start. If you have been mewing for some time and realised that you’ve been doing something wrong, don’t feel bad or sorry. You are not alone. We all make mistakes and we all learn from it. What matters is how much effort are we still willing to put into it to achieve our goals?
