Snoring is a common condition that can affect anyone although it occurs more frequently in men and people who are overweight. As much as they get teased, people who snore are aware (and sometimes embarrassed) of how big this issue is.
Don’t let snoring ruin your relationship or a good night’s sleep. The causes of snoring can be from sleep apnea, viral illness, drinking alcohol, taking medications to mouth breathing, and many others. Don’t wait to end your relationship, find out how you can cure it with these self-help tips and remedies.
Clean/Change the pillows/Pillows Sheets
When was the last time you washed your pillows sheets or exposed your pillow to some fresh air? Remember dust can accumulate your ceiling and anywhere around your sleeping so keeping it tidy often keeps you sound.
The dust mites showered on pillows can cause allergic reactions that can inadvertently lead to snoring.
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.
Rotate your sleeping position
Sleep on your back often might create higher chances for you to snore. Sleeping on your side might help prevent this. Keep the sleeping momentum going, change it.
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.
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.
