HOW DOES A STUFFY NOSE LEAD TO SNORING?
While there are many factors that lead to snoring - like sleeping on your back, the normal aging process, drinking alcohol close to bed time and obesity - nasal congestion is one of the top reasons.
If you’re a snorer, here’s what’s happening in your nose and throat to cause all that noise at nighttime.
- When you’re breathing normally, air flows into your nose and through your airway quietly.
- As you fall asleep, the muscles in your throat and tongue relax, which can partially block your airway.
- As you breathe, air passing through the partially blocked airway causes vibrations of the soft palate and uvula in the back and the throat, generating the sound of snoring.
- Nasal congestion can block your airway even more, making snoring even worse. Congestion itself can turn a quiet sleeper into a snorer – in fact, severe nasal congestion triples the risk of snoring!
NOT THE ONE WHO’S SNORING?
If you sleep next to someone who snores, you know all too well that their snoring can affect your ability to get a good night’s sleep. Thankfully, Breathe Right® nasal strips may be able to help. If your partner suffers from nighttime nasal congestion, a Breathe Right® nasal strip can help reduce or even eliminate their snoring. In the meantime, you can help yourself with these tips for getting a good night’s rest while sleeping with a snorer:
- GET TO BED EARLY
Try to hit the hay before your partner, so you’re in a deeper sleep when they turn in.
- DROWN OUT THE SNORING
Get a white noise maker to mask the sound of your partner’s snoring.
- ROLL THEM OVER
Sleeping on your back contributes to snoring, so give your partner a gentle nudge to get them back on their side.
- GET FIT
Being overweight can increase the chances of snoring. Help your partner get in shape and take off the weight.
