Snoring effects a lot of people, but in most cases isn’t a serious health concern. That being said, a loud snorer can seriously impact their partner’s quality of sleep.
We’ve curated some remedies to help combat this noisy sleep problem. Read about it below!
Change Sleeping Positions
When you sleep on your back your tongue hangs in the back of your throat creating a vibrating noise. To prevent this, adjust your sleeping position to a side-sleeper position. It’ll take some getting used to, but apparently tennis balls help keep you from rolling over.
Say Goodbye to the Nightcap
Alcohol disrupts sleep in a number of ways such as reducing REM sleep. It also reduces the muscle tone in the back of your throat, making snoring more likely to occur.
Open the Nasal Passage
Often, a closed or constricted nasal passage will produce snoring. Open it up with a hot shower, or spray it with a quick burst of salt water.
Change Your Pillows
When is the last time you bought new pillows? Dust mites can accumulate causing allergic reactions, which can lead to snoring. Replace every 6 months to keep allergens and dust mites at bay. The Endy Pillow is a good place to start.
