How To Stop Someone From Snoring
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you’ve been trying to figure out how to stop someone from snoring, you’ve no doubt spent many sleepless nights with your head under the pillow praying it would stop. You nudge them in the side and the snoring stops only to start up again right as you’re falling asleep.

Here are some things you can do to help the snorer in your life stop snoring while helping yourself to get a good night’s sleep:

• Have them change position – Often when a person snores, it is at its worst when the person is lying on their back. Encourage them to sleep on their side with the use of a pillow behind their back to keep them there throughout the night.

• Open mouthed breathing – Breathing with the mouth open will cause snoring by forcing the tongue toward the back of the throat. This can partially if not completely block the airway and cause a person to snore. A change in position can also help to keep the mouth closed during sleep.

• Nasal Blockage – Sometimes irritants or allergies can cause the passageways in the nose to become irritated and inflamed. This reduces the size of the airway, which can cause someone to snore during sleep. Encourage the person to treat the cause of the irritation to minimize the chance of snoring.

• Loose muscles in the throat or jaw – This is the number one cause of snoring in those individuals who have no physical abnormality. Over time like other muscles in the body, the muscles in the throat and jaw become weak and loose. These loose muscles hang and work to block the opening to the throat, restricting air flow. This restriction causes these muscles to vibrate when sleeping which creates the noise that you hear when someone sores. Exercising these muscles helps to tighten them up and reduce the amount of vibration and blockage.

Taking simple steps to change habits or fixing the cause of the problem can solve most causes of snoring. Working the muscles in the jaw and throat can significantly reduce the likelihood of someone becoming a chronic snorer. Opera singers use these exercises to open their throats and keep the muscles toned up for precision control during singing. These same techniques work for snorers by keeping the muscles in the throat tight and firm.

Most who begin a stop snoring exercise program targeting these muscles begin to see results within a couple of weeks. This small time investment will go a long way to improving someone’s overall health. Sleep deprivation is responsible for many other health issues as well as poor performance due to fatigue or lack of concentration. Once a snorer gets improved sleep, they may notice that they start feeling much better and certain things they do each day become easier to perform.

If your loved one has been battling snoring, encourage them to try stop snoring exercises that target the muscles in the throat. This is how to stop someone from snoring without the use of mechanical devices that can make him or her even more uncomfortable at night. Not only will they feel better, but you’ll get a good night’s sleep as well.

Natural Snoring Cures will help you and your partner get a good nights sleep.
