5 Tips To Help You Stop Snoring

5 Tips To Help You Stop Snoring Tonight

Did you know that there are proven methods to help you stop snoring immediately? No more restless nights. No more arguments with your spouse or sleeping in separate rooms. Individuals who snore are all too familiar with these scenarios, but it doesn’t have to continue.

Tip 1
Eliminate the presence of dust, pet hair and cigarette smoke from your home. These types of allergens make it difficult to breathe and especially bothersome for individuals who have been diagnosed with allergies. When breathing becomes difficult, air passages are restricted and this leads to snoring. Lying down at night can make these problems worse, so it’s best to rid your home of allergens and always use air filtration units in every room of the home, especially in the bedroom. Nest Bedding carries dust mite protectors and bedding made with natural, breathable materials to help keep your bedroom, mattress and pillows dust-free.

Tip 2
Use an anti-snoring device, such as the Sleep Genie from Odyssey Direct Solutions, Inc. This product is doctor tested and approved. It is made of a nylon lycra blend so that it fits comfortable on the head and below the jaw. Comfortably supporting the jaw while keeping the mouth closed during sleep is it’s primary goal. Individuals who sleep with their mouth closed do not have the ability to snore, which is why the Sleep Genie is a product that has former-snoring sufferers snoozing without a peep. Another product that can help simply is trying a contour memory foam pillow from Nest Bedding. The contour opens air passages and allows for proper posture while sleeping.

Tip 3
Sleep on your side instead of your back. Studies show that people who sleep on their back tend to be more likely to snore than those who are side or stomach sleepers.

Tip 4
If you suffer from allergies, sinus infections or have been diagnosed with a cold or the flu, try inhaling steam from hot running water before bedtime. This will help to open up the air passages naturally and allow you to breathe easier, which may reduce snoring

Tip 5
Try using two standard pillows instead of one. With your head elevated slightly, your air passages may not become as restricted. Often, passages become blocked when fatty tissue in the throat relaxes and makes it difficult to breath. Snoring is often the result, but having an extra pillow may help to curb the problem. Another effective way of raising your head while sleeping is to upgrade to an adjustable bed, available on our website at or in our Berkeley/Albany California store. An adjustable bed base will work with most memory foam mattresses and organic, natural latex mattresses, and is more effective at raising your head than stacked pillows.
