Ways to Stop Snoring
Snoring can often be reduced by making some simple lifestyle changes.
Losing weight is one way in which snoring can be improved. Eat a healthy, balanced diet including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and some lean protein. Avoid refined sugars and don’t eat too late in the evening. Take some regular exercise to increase your muscle mass and reduce body fat.
Reducing your intake of alcohol can also help. Try to avoid drinking alcohol within four hours of bedtime. If you are taking medication that you think may be contributing to your snoring, talk to your doctor about finding an alternative. Stopping smoking is another way to reduce snoring and improve your health in general.
If you have allergies, keep them at bay by taking your medication regularly and avoiding any known triggers. You might consider installing an air purifier in your bedroom to further reduce your exposure to allergens.
Finally, try to sleep on your side rather than your back. Experiment with the position of your pillows. You might want to try placing one under your arms or legs as well as your head. This may feel unnatural at first but if you persist over the course of a few weeks it should become more comfortable.
