Tongue posture is what so many people have wrong, and that for most, is unheard of.
The tongue is supposed to sit with the tip touching the ball behind the top teeth, and the back of the tongue touching the roof of the mouth with the whole mouth closed up with a good lip seal. This provides a solid support for the upperface and prevents the Maxilla (jaw) from pressing down to much force, which causes Bruxism and the like, this is stopped because the tongue provides a very strong ressistance and pressure to hold up the upper face.
Tongue Posture Benefits
Correcting tongue posture after a duration of time will start to increase the size of your palate, and bring the maxilla (arguably the most important part of the face for attractiveness) upwards and forwards. This will give you a stronger jawline, stronger cheekbones, more defined facial features and many health benefits like increased nasal airway.
Tips For Tongue Posture

Excuse the crude illustration but for those who have trouble imagining it.
Results should start to show after the first couple of months of doing it properley, the aim is to fall asleep and your tongue still be firmly touching the roof of your mouth. Once it becomes a subconcious action is when the major effects will start to come through as well as the steady process of palate expansion.
