Are you tired of waking yourself up all night from snoring? Or driving your partner crazy and keeping them up all night? It’s time to take a hold of your life and get it under control. Don’t let snoring takeover, it can affect how well you sleep and can also affect your relationship with your partner. Here are some simple easy fixes for snoring.
CHANGE YOUR SLEEP POSITION:
Changing your sleep position can help; if you sleep on your back try sleeping on your side. You can use a body pillow to help support your entire body and will also help prevent you from rolling onto your back. Lying on your back causes the base of your tongue to relax and block the airway which can cause the vibrating sound.
Clearing out your nasal passages before going to sleep will help your ability to breath. You can try using the Nasal Strips; you can buy them at your local store. Put one of those on at night before you go to bed and they pull your nasal passages open to help the air flow through your nose, this will help reduce snoring. A Netti Pot can also help out, as well as a hot shower right before bed.
If you have had your pillows for a while I would suggest investing in a new one, over time pillows collect dust mites that cause allergens which can play a factor in snoring. One thing that will help your pillow lasting longer is a pillow protector. You can take them off and wash them; they also prevent dust mites and allergens from getting into the pillow. Also a pillow that props your head up a little more than usual can also help stop snoring, just be careful not to get one that sits your head up to high it can cause neck pains. We would recommend a pillow that is overstuffed, such as the Phoenix Down Overstuffed Pillow.
Smoking can cause you to snore; the smoke causes the airways to be blocked by irritating the membranes in the nose and throat.
Being dehydrated can also affect your snoring by making your soft pallet in your throat sticky which makes it harder to breathe.
These are just some easy pointers to help reduce your snoring; there are tons of ways and things to try. Don’t let snoring take over your good night’s sleep, it’s time to take control.
