Position Yourself to Snore Less

Position Yourself to Snore Less

If you have a difficult time with snoring at night, you might be surprised to find out that you may be able to cut down on the amount that your snoring by changing the position in which you sleep.  The reason why this is the case is because we often snore because the soft tissues in the back of our throat relaxes and begisn to obstruct our airways in some way or another.  This can not only cause us to snore but it may also cause a more serious problem, known as sleep apnea.  In order to overcome this problem, one of the easier ways that we can approach the situation is by changing the position in which we sleep.

Many of us that have a difficult time with snoring and sleep apnea tend to sleep on our backs or at least towards our back, if we sleep on our side.  There's no doubt that this is one of the more comfortable ways to sleep and we tend to condition ourselves to sleep in this way because we feel that we are opening the air passages more and breathing easier.  If we stop breathing on occasion because of sleep apnea, sleeping on our back can make us feel as if we can breathe but it is often a false sense of security.

One of the best ways for you to approach the situation is by teaching yourself how to sleep on your side or on your stomach.  This may be a bit difficult and many people are not willing to try because they don't think that they will be able to sleep in any other position than on their back.  It is thought that it takes up to 30 days to start a new habit so you need to make sure that you're giving yourself enough time to learn how to sleep properly without sleeping on your back.

If you find that you are constantly rolling over onto your back whenever you are sleeping, even if you try to sleep on your stomach or side, you may need to block the approach in one way or another.  Try lining pillows up behind yourself in order to stop you from rolling over onto your back.  It may just help you to be aware of this, even though you are sleeping and it will remind you to stay on your stomach.  Give it a try for a week or two, you might be surprised to find out that positioning yourself properly can help you to stop snoring.
