How to Prevent Snoring

Chronic snoring affects up to 45% of the adult population. Habitual snorers can be at risk for serious health problems, including obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea creates several problems, including:

– Long interruptions of breathing caused by partial or total obstruction or blockage of the airway
– Frequent waking sleep
– Light sleeping
– Strain of the heart
– Poor night’s sleep

Learning to distinguish between kinds of snoring will help you address the particular causes of that kind of snoring. Closed-mouth snoring indicates that your tongue is the cause of your snoring and that some exercises and lifestyle changes should help eliminate the snoring. Open-mouthed snoring can be caused by sinus trouble or by posture in bed. Snoring from any other position might indicate apnea or other significant issues that will require more substantial medical treatment to address.

It’s important to avoid things that can make snoring worse. Alcohol, sleeping pills, coffee and fatty foods before bedtime can all increase snowing by making your throat muscles relax and narrowing your airway.

Dryness can also cause snoring, so using a humidifier or taking a hot bath or shower before bed can help alleviate snoring as well.

If you sleep on your back, buy yourself a few extra pillows and prop yourself up in bed, rather than lying flat on your back. It is not recommended to sleep on your back because in that position, your tongue and soft palate rest against the back of your throat, blocking the airway.

Remember, snoring is a physical problem. Whether you’re a snorer or live with one, there’s nothing to be embarrassed or angry about. It’s not a conscious choice the snorer is making, but a physical concern that can be remedied with a little planning.

Five Ways to Prevent Snoring

Regardless of how heavily you sleep, if your significant other has a snoring problem it is often very difficult to get a good nights sleep. According to the Vancouver Sleep and Breathing Center 59% of people claim that their partner snores. If you aren’t one of those people but often notice your partner is grumpy in the morning, there is a good possibility that you are in fact the one that snores. Snoring itself is not a serious problem but it can be associated with sleep apnea as well as simply putting a strain on your relationship. Here are just a few ways to prevent this common menace to ensure that you and your significant other sleep well every night.

1. Take care of your health

  • It may seem like a general tip but keeping healthy can help prevent snoring in most people. Obesity is a very common cause of snoring due to the amount of excess fat compressing the airway causing it to vibrate when breathing. Smoking is another unhealthy activity that can cause snoring, as well as a plethora of other more serious health problems. Working on your overall health by exercising and cutting out smoking from your routine will help alleviate your snoring problem.

2. Sleep on your side

  •  This is a more simple solution that works for some people with less severe snoring problems. Laying on your side actively opens up your airway letting you sleep snore-free. It is important to note that latex or memory foam mattresses are preferable to side sleepers since they provide the most comfort.

3. Try breathing exercises

  •  A great way to prevent snoring is by strengthening your breathing muscles. Just like musicians and opera singers, you should try simple breathing exercises to work out your larynx, making it more difficult for your throat to close up while you sleep.

4. Dental appliances

  •  There are certain retainer-esque devices you can buy that helps pull your tongue forward that will open up your airway to prevent snoring. These devices can actually help mild cases of sleep apnea as well. There is a possibility of discomfort but these devices can be fitted to your mouth by a dentist or bought over-the-counter.

5. Open your sinuses

  •  Stuffed up sinuses can be a major contributor to you or your partner’s snoring problem. If you think this may be a reason you are in luck as it is a fairly simple problem to fix. There are tons of over-the-counter medicines that will flush out your sinuses and help you breath easier when you lay down for the night.

Try these tactics to eliminate you or your partner’s snoring habits so you both can get a healthy amount of sleep each night. If these don’t work it might be a good idea to seek a medical option but before you go to that extreme you may just want to try a more comfortable mattress. Come to Mattresses for Less and look through their extensive inventory of extremely comfortable mattresses so you can catch some Z’s regardless of how loud your partner is.
