Does snoring have your partner waking up in the middle of the night? Has your relationship been struggling because you are being accused of snoring to loud? If you answered yes, it is time to find out some simple ways to help with your snoring problem and get your relationship back on track.
The first step in finding a cure to your snoring is to find the causes of snoring. Start by writing in a journal of what you do during the day and your worst nights of snoring. By doing this, you can narrow down the answer between the relationship of what you do and how it affects your snoring.
There are several lifestyle changes that you should consider to help minimize snoring.
Working out is one way that can help eliminating snoring. Not only does working out help you build muscles in your arms and legs, but it also helps strengthen the muscles in your throat. Furthermore, if you need to, try to lose weight when you are working out as well. Losing weight will reduce the fatty tissue in the back of your throat, allowing you to breathe easier, which reduces snoring.
I know everyone says smoking is bad for you, so it seems repetitive. However, smoking does block your airway, making it harder to breathe. The more your airway is blocked, the harder you have to work to get air, making the risk of snoring higher.
Drinking alcohol right before bed relaxes your throat muscles, which causes your muscles to interfere with your breathing, again increasing the risk of snoring. Try to stay away from drinking alcohol right before bed.
Some things you can do before you go to sleep:
Are you feeling sick, or having nasal blockage. Before you go to bed, try clearing your nasal passageway so you can breathe easier. Like I stated earlier, when your airways are blocked it requires you to work harder to get air. The harder you have to work the higher the risk you are to snore.
Keeping the air in your bedroom moist will also reduce snoring. If you can, try purchasing a humidifier for your bedroom.
Lying in the right sleeping position can also help you with snoring. Sleeping with your head slightly elevated is the best position to help prevent snoring.
Try using these different changes. You do not have to change everything at once, try changing one and go from there. Your partner will be extremely happy when you are sleeping next to him or her and your breathing is silent.
