Are you the prey of noisy sleep i.e. snoring??? 

Girl you really need to look into it. Your man would think tons of time before sharing a bed with you for the night. You may even wake yourself up with unfortunately your own snores (don’t feel shy). To prevent such awkward situations, we are here to provide you with some of the suggestions that you adopt to see if you stop snoring. With no further delay, go through the article:

Change Your Position Of Sleep

Normal snoring is caused because of your sleeping position. When you lie down on your back, the base of your tongue and the soft palate comes closer to the back-sided wall of your throat. This reduction in the passage of air causes vibrating sounds while sleeping. To prevent this, sleep on either of your sides. If you still continue to snore regardless of the sleep position, then obstructive sleep apnea may be the reason and you may be required to approach a doc. 

Get rid of some bodyweight

This may work for some people while for some others it may not. It is not to conceive that thin people do not snore. They can and they do!!!

If you recently gained weight and then started snoring, and if snoring was not in your account when you were thin, then losing weight will be a remedy to say goodbye to snoring. If you accumulate fats near your throat, then your internal diameter would likely squeeze closer and this triggers snoring. 

Say no to alcohol

Consuming alcohol and sedatives increases the chances of snoring. These additives minimize the resting tone of the muscles in the back of your throat and this ends up as snoring. Even if a person who does not usually snore, will start to snore if he or she consumes alcohol before going to sleep. Remember your snores would worsen if you have alcohol four to five hours before going to bed. So to not do so, try to stay away from alcohol and sedative.

Prepare to have good sleep hygiene

Poor sleep hygiene, or most commonly known as poor sleep habits may impact you in the same way alcohol would. Working for long periods without sufficient sleep will make you overtired and this leads you to have snoring sleep. This is like when you don’t sleep on time and get over exhausted, you will ultimately sleep hard and deep. This will cause your body to turn floppier and cause snores. 

Open nasal passages

When you have clogged nostrils, you are more likely to snore. The reason is solely on the reduced diameter of the air passage.

A hot shower before you go to bed can help open nasal passages. You can also rinse your nose with some lukewarm salted water. Try to take the water from your nose and then let it go. It may seem hard to do, but I have done this and it works amazing. You can sleep without snoring because your blockage will go away.  

Snoring

Switch to another pillow

Allergens that are present in your bedroom and in your pillow may be the contributing factor of your snoring.Do you remember when was the last time you dusted your overhead fan? Replaced your pillow with a newer one? 

The reason for such snores may be the allergies that are caused because of the dust miles that accumulate in your pillow. Letting your pet use your bed may also cause irritations. Make a schedule to put your pillow in the air fluff once every couple weeks and replace them every 6 months to minimize the chances of dust miles and allergens.  

Stay well hydrated to avoid snoring

Drink loads of water. Work to stay hydrated, because when you stay dehydrated, the secretion in your nose and the soft palate becomes stickier which causes you to snore. It is recommended that a healthy woman should have about 11 cups of water in total (drinks as well as foods), whereas, for a healthy man, 16 cups is good to go. 

Apply the above to yourself and I’m sure you will overcome your snores. Do remember, it may take time but you have to have patience and pay attention to the above so that you do not break the oath to maintain them and with time, you or your sleeping partner will observe the difference that you make.
