You or your partner wants better sleep at night, but the snoring won’t just go away. It’s normal, so don’t feel bad that you are the burnt of jokes sometimes. Atleast 45% of normal adults snore occasionally, while some snore every single time they close their eyes to sleep.
So here are 7 easy ways to help you or your partner reduce snoring…
1. Change your sleeping position. Avoid lying on your back, instead sleep on your side or tummy.
2. Try losing some weight. Yes thin people snore too, but the chances are lower.
3. Reduce your alcohol intake.
4. Sip on something hot and take a warm shower before you sleep.
5. Change your pillows.
Not only is snoring a nuisance, but 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods), which increases the risk of developing heart disease, Slaughter says. So treat snoring today.
