Ways To Stop Someone From Snoring


July. 30, 2020

Getting a good night’s sleep is important to your mental and physical health. Sharing a bed, room, or in some cases a home with someone who snores can deprive you of sleep and put a strain on relationships. Snoring is a common problem that occurs when air cannot move freely through the nasal cavities, causing the surrounding tissue to vibrate, or when the tongue is too far back in the mouth. To prevent someone from snoring, you can adjust their sleep environment, help them change their sleep habits, and suggest lifestyle changes so everyone can get a good night’s sleep.
Use pillows to elevate the sleeper's head. Raising the head 4 inches (10 cm) with 1 to 2 pillows can make it easier to breathe and encourage the tongue and jaw to move forward. You can buy specially designed pillows to keep the neck muscles relaxed and open, leading to a reduction or elimination of snoring when sleeping. 
Keep the bedroom moist with a humidifier. Dry air can irritate your nose and throat and lead to congestion and snoring at night. If the person who snores has issues with swollen nasal tissues, it can help to sleep with a humidifier on. Keeping the air moist throughout the night can help ensure better, snore-free sleep. 
Consider separate bedrooms if the snoring is too loud. Some couples, families, and roommates decide it might be best to have separate bedrooms for sleeping, especially if the snoring is a chronic issue. It can be difficult, especially for couples, to sleep in separate rooms if one person feels guilty or resentful due to interrupted sleep. Take the time to talk to the snorer about this possibility.
