Tips To Help You Stop Snoring

Posted by Dr Sleep for Moon Mattress on

If you snore, you’re not alone: Up to half of all Aussies adults snore. It happens when air flows through your throat when you breathe in your sleep. This causes the relaxed tissues in your throat to vibrate and cause harsh, irritating snoring sounds.

Snoring may disrupt your sleep, or that of your partner. Even if it’s not bothering you too much, it’s not a condition to ignore. In fact, snoring may be a sign of a serious health condition, including:

  • obstructive sleep apnea (blocked airways)
  • obesity
  • an issue with the structure of your mouth, nose, or throat
  • sleep deprivation.

In other cases, snoring may be caused simply by sleeping on your back or drinking alcohol too close to bedtime.

Here Are Our Top Tips To Help You Stop Snoring

Weight Loss

Obesity has been heavily linked to snoring. This is due to a buildup of fatty tissue around the neck and throat area, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime if you are trying to stop snoring.

Avoid Alcohol Consumption Before Bed

Alcohol causes your muscles to relax more than they would during a regular night’s sleep. This added relaxation of the muscles makes the back of the throat close much more easily, which leads to snoring.

Keep Your Nasal Passages Clear

This ensures that you can breathe through your nose rather than your mouth whilst you are sleeping. If your nose is blocked as a result of an allergy, we’d suggest using a nasal spray. Snoring is a direct result of your airways being blocked, therefore by keeping your nasal passages clear, it should help you to stop snoring.

Quit Smoking

Smoking has heavily associated with snoring. Smoking causes several issues related to breathing as a result of the damage that it does to your lungs. Therefore, if you are a smoker and you were to quit, you will soon find that your snoring will cease in due time.

Five ways to quit smoking

 

Choose the right mattress

If your bed is too soft, or is too firm your spine doesn’t curve naturally. This again impacts your airways and can cause snoring to disrupt your rest. Consider choosing a medium-firm mattress with a memory foam or latex filling.
