breathe in, breathe out

So, one five hour surgery later, I can finally breathe properly out of my nose after 25 years of growing up, exercising, and playing sports taking breath mostly through my mouth. I want to learn to use this new function properly.

I'm afraid my body is well trained in mouth-breathing. Even though I've already noticed improvements in sleeping, I want to encourage proper breathing during sports (I play soccer) and even everyday life.
I'm looking for articles that teach techniques and methods for learning to breathe correctly through the nose, to train myself to do so.
I've googled - most of what I've found has been generic advice that it should be done - not procedures/techniques/ideas on how to do so. I once read an article in a magazine at a gym that described how a guy was teaching basketball players to breathe through their nose by doing various treadmill running-then-sprinting exercises with a covered mouth and proceded to tell step by step how it was done. That's sort of what I'm looking for. Thanks for your help. I love askme.
