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?
Not surprisingly, the non-snorer suffers many of the same adverse effects as the snorer. However, second-hand snoring can cause additional, serious problems.
You, the non-snorer, may experience:
compromised immune system
lack of concentration
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.
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.
The Sleep Connection Watch will do the work for you, so that you can sleep, too! This sleep wristband will be on the alert, so you don’t have to be. When it detects a loud snore, our anti-snore watch sends a gentle, programmable pulse to awaken him just enough to prompt him to change positions. The snoring stops, and neither of you wake up. Finally!
