Do you wake up in the morning to your angry roommate rebuking you about how noisy you have been while you were sleeping?
Yeah, you were snoring! As much as we know that you have no control over it, it is annoying for your roommate, and the even bigger problem is, it is UNHEALTHY!
What is snoring? Snoring is breathing noisily while you are asleep. It happens due to the blockage of nose and air flow through the mouth.
Though snoring once in a while isn’t really that big of a problem, but snoring on a regular basis can be a symptom of underlying health problems. It can also disturb your sleeping pattern!
Snoring may be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. This is a health problem that causes your breathing to start and stop frequently. It happens due to periodic blockage of upper airway while you are sleeping. Snoring can also be a result of sleep deprivation. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your throat muscles might tend to relax to a great extent! Abuse of alcohol and drugs can also cause snoring. A little change in your lifestyle like losing your weight or stopping the abuse of drugs can go a great way!
Adhering to a well-organized sleeping plan, not sleeping on your back, using a good pillow are some of the home remedies you can try!
