As anyone who shares a bed with a snorer knows, snoring is a bothering bed time issue that not only impacts those around you, but can also significantly hinder your quality of sleep, leaving you tired, grumpy and groggy in the morning, even though you may believe you’ve been snoring away peacefully. Here at Bold Street Beds we stock sleep products that can aid your quest for better sleep, from adjustable beds, to specialist pillows and memory foam mattresses.
This not-so-silent epidemic is an age old ailment surrounded by plenty of speculation and old wives’ tales offering unlikely solutions (we’re talking filling your nostrils with toothpaste and swilling garlic around your tonsils…). It may be wiser to target the potential causes of snoring. Although these won’t always put an absolute stop to snoring, following a few tips can often reduce your noisy snoozing habit.
It’s a well known fact that we should limit our alcohol intake other related sedatives in the evening, as this can leave us dehydrated. Dehydration causes (for want of better imagery) stickier, thicker nasal secretion, which is leads to the clogging of airways and a increase in snoring. Drinking a healthy amount of water will keep you nicely hydrated and will help ensure your airways are kept clear. In terms of food, limit foods with high fat or congestion causing snacks around bed time, as such feasts will hinder sleep and increase snoring.
Change of Sleeping Position
Lying on your back allows your throat to relax, increasing the risk of your tongue moving backwards. This obstructs air and leads to snoring. Try to make sure you stay on your side, as this greatly decreases your chances of snoring.
Reduce Dry Air
Dry air in your home can be detrimental to your nasal membranes and can damage your throat, leading to swelling and congestion. Invest in a de-humidifier in your bedroom will reduce the amount of dry air in the room and open your airways to reduce snoring.
Pick the Perfect Pillow
