WEBE Wellness: Tips To End Snoring

When it comes to snoring, if you do it, you probably don’t care. But if someone else in the same bed does, it could be a problem.

There are a few tricks you could ask them to do to help:

First – ask them to sleep on their side. Because of gravity, sleeping on your back creates a blockage when your tongue falls.

Don’t eat so close to bedtime – if your stomach is full, your diaphragm can’t expand as much.

Drinking more water – if you’re dehydrated, the mucus in your throat thickens, and makes you more likely to snore. A hot shower before bed can also help.

Finally, try some throat exercises – for instance, saying all the vowels – A-E-I-O-U – out loud for three minutes, a few times a day, can help. Probably do that one in the car.
