One today is worth two tomorrows.
If you have snoring issues that other remedies won’t treat, this could be a sign that the snoring is related to sleep apnea. You need to visit your doctor if you wake up often during the night gasping for breath, you’re extremely tired throughout the day, you struggle to focus and remember things, and your partner notices that you stop breathing while sleeping. Sleep apnea can affect your daily living and can also increase the odds of developing vascular problems.
Do not eat much or drink alcohol in the three hours before bed if you want to stop snoring. A large meal or alcohol causes the throat muscles to relax. Even if you don’t snore regularly, this may cause you to start! If you snore when you are asleep, consider blowing your nose, then spraying saline spray up it before you get into bed. Clear, moist airways will allow your breathing to become easier as you sleep. You’ll be able to breathe nasally instead of through your mouth.
Minimize snoring by exercising regularly. When you exercise, your breathing becomes more regulated, which in turn can reduce the risk of snoring. Exercise reduces your stress, as well as helps your lungs stay healthy. Too much stress can change the way you breathe, thus increasing the probability of you snoring.
