So, How To Stop It?
Snoring is deeply connected with lifestyle. In order to fix it, you have to make lifestyle changes. Amalia Home Collection have become experts in all things sleep-related. Try these self-help tips to help you to stop snoring:
1. Lose Weight
Snoring can be related to not maintaining a healthy weight or diet. Being overweight can lead to snoring as fatty tissue around the neck squeezes the airway and prevents air to flow in and out freely. For this and many reasons, it is important to have a healthier diet.
2. Avoid Alcohol, Heavy Meals Or Snacks Close To Bedtime
Avoid drinking alcohol at least four hours before going to bed. In the case of meals and snacks, three hours is enough. The process of digesting your food keeps your body from fully resting. So consider this even on a night out on the town if you need to be fully rested for the next day.
3. Avoid Using Sleep Aids
Many people don’t realize that a side effect of sleeping aids is snoring. If this side effect is preventing you from feeling rested when you wake or disturbing your partner’s sleep, then avoid these kinds of methods for falling asleep. Instead, try some holistic methods such as herbal teas, removing technology an hour before bed, or a relaxing bath.
4. Treat Nasal Congestion
Nasal congestion is one of the primary conditions that lead to snoring. Use a nasal decongestant to clear your nasal passages, so you can breathe easier and prevent snoring. If you suffer from allergies, also use allergy medication and avoid having pets in the bedroom.
5. Avoiding Sleep Deprivation By Establishing Regular Sleeping Patterns
Sleep deprivation is a common problem in today’s digital world. Overstimulation from information, screens, and online access prevent us from turning off our brains and conditioning it for sleep. Unfortunately, that means most of us are operating on less than optimum amounts of sleep. This can both prevent health benefits and cause bad ones, one of which is snoring. We recommend keeping a regular sleeping routine and forming a healthy nighttime ritual.
6. Changing Sleeping Position
Snoring is also affected by our sleeping position. This is commonly why a person only snores on occasion instead of all the time. Typically, avoid sleeping on your back and try to sleep on your side to prevent this more manageable reason for snoring.
7. Keep Your Bedroom Air Moist
Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat leading to swollen nasal tissues. This can cause snoring. In order to regulate the atmosphere of our bedroom, try using a humidifier. This releases moisture back into the air lightly which overall leads to better breathing patterns.
If you follow these recommendations, you’ll see a vast improvement if not a complete end to your snoring nightmares. It will allow you to adopt a healthier lifestyle and more sleep, something we all need more of anyway. Following these recommendations is the first step to say goodbye to your snoring nightmares.
It’s also recommended, for those who suffer severely from snoring to schedule a doctor appointment so you can have the right diagnosis about its origin.
