Do people wake you in the middle of the night and tell you to stop snoring? Or, how do you feel when you can’t sleep because your partner snores so loud?
1. Cut your weight
If you recently added weight then began snoring, your extra weight might be the cause. Excess weight especially around the neck narrows your throat restricting air passage. When the flow of air is restricted, snoring happens.
2. Invest in a good pillow
A good pillow is supposed to keep your head aligned to your spine. Using a pillow ensures that the air paths remain open reducing the chances of snoring.
3. Deal with the allergies
The main reason why people snore is because the air cannot flow smoothly. If you have allergies that lead to nasal blockage, you need to stay away from them in order to stop snoring. A lasting solution, however is to have the allergy treated.
4. Avoid smoking/alcohol
Smoking irritates the mucus membranes which can lead air blockage. Also, alcohol relaxes the throat muscles thus interfering with the breathing system.
5. Clean up your bedroom
Keep your bed tidy by changing the sheets more often and dusting the room. This way, you will reduce the allergens that are likely to block your nasal cavity.
