Top 3: Ways to stop snoring
Snoring occurs when the airway tissue at the back of your throat, mouth and nose vibrates as we inhale and exhale. It’s twice as common in men compared to women and it’s also thought to increase with age.
But did you know that snoring is often linked to your lifestyle choices? There are some very straightforward changes you can make if you think that they may help you stop snoring.
Our top 3 tips could be very welcome for any long-suffering partners too:
- Sleeping Position
Sleeping on your side is often known to help avoid snoring problems. This is because sleeping on your side prevents your tongue and chin from relaxing, which squashes your airways.
- Avoid Alcohol
Alcohol makes your muscles relax more than usual during a normal night's sleep, which can cause your back of the throat to collapse as you breath, which means you’re more likely to snore.
- Allergy Treatment
Snoring can be caused by allergic reactions. Being tested for allergies can, therefore, help you to identify and reduce potential allergens in your sleeping environment.
Do you snore, or are you kept awake by snoring at night? We’ve all been there. Let us know in the comments if you’ve discovered any other helpful tips which could help other people.
See you soon,
