No one likes snoring or being around someone who snores. It’s something that affects around 40% of people in the world. IF you are someone who snores, or knows someone who snores give them these ten tips to get them to stop snoring:
1. Change your sleeping position
If you sleep on your back chances are you snore more because the base of your tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of your throat, causing a vibrating sound during sleep. Sleeping on your side may prevent this.
2. Stop smoking
If you’re a smoker stop smoking! Smoking can cause nasal congestion and can worsen your snoring.
Being overweight can cause you to have a fat neck which in turn increases the risk of fat pushing down on your throat and worsening snoring.
4. Stop taking sedatives to sleep
Some sleeping pills are designed to have a relaxing effect which can in turn make you snore louder.
5. Keep your mouth shut
If you know you snore with your mouth open try to keep it shut by using adhesive tape or mouth guards.
6. Raise the head of your bed
Raising your head will keep your tounge from falling back and blocking your throat
