10 snoring tricks we recommend to you

Don’t let snoring ruin your relationship or a good night’s sleep. Learn some effective remedies and new ways to get your sleep back.

1. Turn onto your side

This reduces the pressure on your chin and airways, which prevents them from closing and causing snoring.

Hugging the partner is enough to turn him over.

2. Get the right pillow

The best pillow for you is the one that feels most comfortable. We advice smaller flatter pillows so your neck can rest too and your back can stretch relaxed.

Place you old pillow behind your back.

3. Fix your sleep cycle

Your snoring increases the more tired you are. But beware, an oxymoron: the louder you snore, the more tired you become.

Give yourself plenty of time to rest.

4. No Alcohol Before Bed

When you fall asleep drunk, your muscles relax and your throat tends to close. A small glass of wine releases the sleep hormone melatonin. Just one small beer makes you sleepy, too.

Avoid alcohol for 3-4 hours before sleep.

5. Turn your extra weight into muscles

Even a small amount of excess weight can put extra pressure on your neck when you’re sleeping. Find a sport you like and set yourself an initial goal.

Start slowly into your training.

6. Get outside

Fresh air makes you feel better tired. Vitamin D from sunlight makes you also happy and healthier.

Walks in the evening are also romantic.

7. Late night, hot shower

The hot steam frees you from nasal and throat congestion. Inhaling cleanses the mucous membranes in the upper airways and increases their circulation. Stubborn mucus in the nose and bronchial tubes can be blown out more easily.

8. Sorry Pizza-Man!

People who are well rested have fewer cravings for unhealthy, fatty foods. Fruit before bedtime leads to restless sleep.

Don’t eat later then 8pm.

9. Get enough sleep

The recommended seven to eight hours of sleep make you more refreshed during your day. Fact, short sleepers cause more accidents.

Get up slowly in the morning.

10. Hang your bedding in fresh air

Dust and mites quickly clog the nose. The nasal mucous membranes swell and the snoring monster is awakened.

Change your bed linen every week.
