Even though snoring is fairly common, it is still a sleep disorder that can have serious medical and social consequences. Chances are you’ve encountered someone who snores given that 40 percent of men and 25 percent of women snore while they sleep. For all those who are advocating for more serene Z’s, helping someone to stop snoring may be a top priority.
Are you trying to stop snoring, or get someone else to stop snoring? Take a look at these 9 tips for help getting peaceful sleep (full list after the jump).
- Lose Weight: Excess body weight, especially around the neck, puts pressure on the airway, causing it to partially collapse.
- Get Your Allergies Treated: Chronic respiratory allergies may cause snoring by forcing sufferers to breathe through their mouths while they sleep.
- Elevate Your Head: Sleeping with your head raised may take some of the pressure off of the airway, making breathing easier.
