How You Can Both Sleep Through the Night?

Much has been written about the harmful effects of snoring on the snorer, but what about living with someone who snores? Is there anything you can do to finally get a good night’s sleep? Keep reading to learn how.

Just about everyone snores at some time in their life, but chronic snoring is a serious problem for everyone. Most snorers are men; only 20% of women snore regularly.

When you married the man of your dreams and discovered that he snored, it may have seemed endearing at first. It woke you up, you smiled and gently nudged him. He changed positions, stopped snoring, and you both went back to sleep. Peace for a while.

However, after countless sleepless nights, it’s not endearing anymore. Plus, he’s most likely getting more sleep than you are. How aggravating is that?

Here’s how it usually goes

  • Progression of Events
  • Give a patient nudge
  • Cover your ears
  • Insert earplugs
  • Wear headphones with white noise or calming music
  • Go to bed earlier than your spouse
  • Lie awake, too tense to sleep, waiting for the snoring to begin
  • Give a frustrated shove
  • Scream at dear hubby
  • Feel irritable much of the time
  • Experience mental and physical symptoms
  • End up in separate bedrooms

Not surprisingly, the non-snorer suffers many of the same adverse effects as the snorer. However, second-hand snoring can cause additional, serious problems.

Adverse Health Effects

You, the non-snorer, may experience:

irritability

exhaustion

anxiety

depression

HEARING LOSS

compromised immune system

lack of concentration

hypertension

stroke

heart failure

You love your husband and want both of you to sleep at night – together. But you’re at your wit’s end. You feel like you’ve tried everything.

What You Can Do

1. Have him checked for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can be a serious sleep disorder, where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during the night.

2. If the problem is weight-related, consult a nutritionist to help him begin a weight-loss plan. If you prepare the meals, plan delicious and nutritious foods. Encourage exercise. Losing weight could help reduce snoring.

3. Many people snore because of their sleeping position, so an anti-snoring device, other than you, that can help them change positions, is a must.
