Health Tips: How To Stop Snoring

share on:

I am not sure if snoring  has caused anyone to divorce their partner or if it poses any serious threat to relationships but I know how incredibly hard it is to sleep in the same room with someone who snores.

As much as they get teased, people who snore are aware (and sometimes embarrassed) of how big this issue is.

And if they could, they would find a quick or at least, simple solution to this problem.

These steps can help you.

Stop Alcohol Intake

Alcohol reduces the resting tone of the muscles in the back of your neck so usually, when you take alcohol at least four hours before you sleep, there are very high chances you would snore.

What is interesting to note here is that people who do not snore normally, might actually snore if they go to bed right after heavy drinking.

So keep the alcohol away.

Weight loss

This is not to say slim people do not snore too but if you never snored before you added weight but now snore, then you might want to consider losing a few pounds.

Change sleeping position

When you sleep on your back, there might be higher chances that you will snore when you sleep. Sleeping on your side might help prevent this.

Watch the pillows

Try and remember, when was the last time you cleaned your pillows and your ceiling and anywhere around your sleeping area where dust can accumulate.

Dust mites accumulate in pillows and can cause allergic reactions that can inadvertently lead to snoring.

Stay hydrated, shower before bed

Drink plenty of water. The secretions in your nose and soft palate become stickier if you are not well hydrated.

Also, shower before bed to keep you fresh and do not forget to sleep on your side and most importantly, get enough sleep.
