If you or your partner snores, it could ruin your relationship. Everyone needs sleep, and a disturbance in the middle of the night can spoil the other person's sleep. At some point, you may decide to sleep separately. While this doesn't seem particularly romantic, many people do it, and their relationship doesn't suffer at all.

 

Many people find that breathing strips are an effective and fairly affordable means of cutting down on the snoring. However, some people have expressed problems with preventing the strips from falling off during the night. Before applying the strip, use an alcohol-based toner to swab the nose and surrounding area. This will allow the adhesive strips to firmly grip the skin all night long.

 

If snoring has become a nighttime concern, then it is time to give dairy products such as milk, yogurt or cheese a miss before you go to sleep each night. This is because the dairy products can cause mucus to build up near your breathing passages, and this will trigger off snoring.

 

Not eating a large meal close to bedtime is one of the best ways to prevent snoring. When your stomach is too full, it can makes it's way up to your diaphragm, thus, limiting your breathing and causing snoring. Stick with big meals at dinnertime and have a light snack instead before bed.

 

Sleep on your side, rather than your stomach or back when working on snoring problems. If you lay on your back, you have a greater chance of snoring. However, stomach-sleeping causes stress to your neck. This is the reason why the perfect position for you to sleep in is on your side.

 

It should not be surprising to read that losing weight will help to reduce snoring. This is common advice for snorers and the reasons are simple. If you have extra fatty tissue around your neck, this restricts your airway. Your muscles are weaker and your throat is more likely to relax and then, close up when you fall asleep.

 

Some doctors believe that building up the muscles in your upper throat can end snoring problems. Certain physicians tout singing as an effective way of reducing snoring, due to the build up of muscle in the throat and soft palate. Strengthening these muscles keeps them from constricting the airway while you sleep, which in turn reduces your propensity to snore.

 

As previously stated, snoring is a common sleep disorder that many deal with and just ignore. There are various causes of snoring, some more serious than others, so it shouldn't be ignored at all. Using the above tips, see what could be causing your snoring and what you can do to battle your sleeping disorder.
