If you are anything like me and have snored chronically for many years, you’re probably getting pretty fed up with it, as is your partner. There are however a number of useful anti-snoring devices which could help you with your condition.
It didn’t take me very long to discover that I only really snored whilst lying on my back, and this basic knowledge made finding a solution very simple indeed. I just needed to find something that would stop me rolling over during the night, and the snoring pillow was just the ticket.
These are specially shaped pillows, constructed of memory foam, which work to prevent the sleeper from rolling over onto their backs whilst asleep. They’re a very simple device, completely non-invasive, and you still sleep great when using one. The product I purchased online also elongated my neck very slightly and pulled my lower jaw into a slightly forward position which works to keep the airway clear.
After using it for a few days, my wife noticed that my snoring had reduced both in frequency and severity. She was probably more relieved than me as she is a light sleeper and my years as snoring have taken an affect on her sleep patterns.
For those of you that mouth breathe while asleep, a special chinstrap is available that can also help the condition. These simple devices do little more than keeping the mouth closed during the night by a head harness and chin cup. They look a little bit odd but work exceptionally well. They can be purchased online for not much more than $20, a great deal if it stops you snoring.
My advice to all snorers is to try a few of these devices after taking a close look at your needs, and see how they work for you. It may require a little trial and error, but to be snore free for the rest of your life surely makes these devices worth the effort spent on research and the small amount of money on purchase. I have found that it has produced a really positive effect on my life, including a reduction in daytime tiredness, more general energy, and a better relationship with my partner, who was usually more tired than I was. It’s really amazing how something that seems as innocent as snoring can have such a profound effect on your life. I have never felt better.
