We all know the importance of lip seal -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t36ApJIktco

What techniques have you found to be helpful to keep your lips sealed throughout the day and night, and how strong of a seal is proper?

In my case I've always had a lip seal but it was using my lip muscles a bit because I had my teeth slightly apart. I feel like a proper seal involves almost zero work from your lips. If you don't have a malocclusion and keep your teeth together I think proper lip seal is  likely very easy to achieve. I can't speak to other circumstances.

What about when sleeping? During the day my lips are together but I've always noticed I drooled growing up in my sleep so I definitely have bad lip seal at night. Any alternatives other than lip taping?

Work on your lip strength by pronouncing the letter p, and holding your lips together as if you were to spit something out.
