But if you’re keeping your partner awake with your bedtime mutterings, you may be on the receiving end of whinging or an elbow to the ribs. Thankfully, even the most prolific snorers can cure their habits by changing their routine.
An ear, nose and throat surgeon at London’s Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth – recently spoke about snoring.
The expert said that while it’s “not a habit you may choose to have one you can choose to stop”. The expert then outlined some ways to combat the issue.
He recommends completing a three-step workout to open up your mouth and nasal passages before bed. The entire routine takes a few minutes and should help to prevent the problem. Curl your tongue upwards, pressing it against the roof of your mouth while also touching your front teeth.
Hold for a few seconds before repeating. Pretend you’re at the dentist and say “ahhh” for 20 seconds. This should help to open up your airways. Stick your tongue out and take a deep breath. As you exhale, make a high pitched noise like you’re gargling out the air.
