Snoring not only signals an increased risk of stroke and other health issues, but it can actually make your roommate go crazy. We have listed few tips that can help you get rid of those gentle purrs to sawing logs.
1. Lose some weight.
Well some thin people also snore, so it doesn’t work for everyone. But if you were thin before and have recently gained then you can certainly blame your weight for that. If you gain weight around your neck, it squeezes the internal diameter of the throat and triggers snoring.
2. Try a nasal spray or strip.
A jammed nose or clogged nasal route can make snoring really bad by forcing you to breathe through your mouth. A nasal strip on the bridge of your nose can help open your nasal passage.
3. Get a humidifier.
Dryness in mouth and nasal passages can also trigger snoring. A humidifier can actually help you keep the room and your nasal passage moist.
4. Practice good sleep hygiene.
It is important to monitor your sleep cycle. Working long hours and not getting enough sleep can also trigger snoring. When you are tired and have a sound sleep, your muscles become a little loose which leads to snoring.
5. Change your bed sheet and pillows every week.
Allergens in your bedroom and in your pillow may contribute to snoring. When did you last dust the overhead ceiling fan and replace your pillows.
6. Avoid alcohol, especially at night.
Alcohol can create tension in the muscles, particularly in the back of your throat, which trigger snoring. And if you are drinking four to five hours before sleeping then your snoring can actually get worse. Also people who don’t snore at all normally tend to snore after drinking.
