Tired of Snoring? 3 Tips to Give You a Rest
The following self-care steps may help silence your snoring and allow you to rest a little easier:
- Breathe easy. Allergies can inflame the nasal passages, sinuses, and airways of the lungs, and commonly cause or contribute to snoring. Learn about simple strategies to take control of your allergies.
- Get fit. A preliminary trial found that weight loss was more important in reducing snoring than either changes in sleep position or use of a nasal decongestant spray. Find a weight loss plan that works for you.
- Stop smoking. A sleep study found that heavy smokers are more likely to snore than are moderate and light smokers, and that people who have quit smoking are no more likely to snore than are people who have never smoked. Need help quitting? Try these tips.
