In the many years that I have lived in this world, I have never met a person who finds snoring to be music to their years. In fact, it has been a source of lack of sleep to many people, not those who snore, but to those around them. The main reason why you should stop snoring immediately is not because it affects you as a snoring person (most snorers cannot even hear themselves snore) but because of the effect that it has to those around you. The experience has never been great for those who have snoring roommates and it even gets worse when it is a bed mate. Fortunately, this is not something that you have to live with. A big percentage of snoring is caused by poor lifestyles. For such kind of cases, it is usually very easy to get back to your normal self once you know the causative agent. Unfortunately some of the cases will be so advanced that you will need medical care but before you get to that it would be nice to try out the following simple guidelines that apply to you.
You can start by checking on your weight first. If for example you were not a snorer before but you started snoring when you added weight, your problem maybe with you weight. In this case, you can stop snoring only by cutting on the extra weight that you have gained. Snoring as a result of weight gain is usually caused by a collapsing throat that is as a result of increased weight around the neck region. A collapsed throat leads to difficulties in breathing which results to mouth breathing as an extra source of air. Cutting on this weight may bring things back to normal. The process of cutting down the weight .i.e. exercising, will also help you strengthen your neck muscles which is a plus towards this campaign.
Improving your sleeping hygiene may also be a remedy to snoring. A human body is meant to rest after some period of activity. The main source of rest is usually sleeping. Although you may not be fully conscious when you sleep, some of your muscles will remain fully active even in sleep. Overworking of the body however will lead to tiresome all over, this also means using even your energy reserves. As a result of this, these muscles, including the throat muscles, will remain slack during your sleep hence the poor breathing which translates to snoring. To stop snoring you have to ensure that you don’t overwork yourself. Alcohol and sedatives will also have the same effect of loosening the muscles hence the high snoring rate among their abusers.
Lastly, the easiest thing on this list and also the most important is to clear your nasal passages and also ensure that they are always open. Remember, mouth breathing is the main source of snoring. Blocked nasal passages make this unavoidable. There are devices that have been made to make sure that your passage remains open especially if your nostrils have a tendency of collapsing.
