Silence the Snore: Top Tips for Stop Snoring Week

By Jonathan 23 April 2024


Snoring affects millions of people worldwide, disrupting sleep quality for both the snorer and their bed partner. Fortunately, numerous strategies and lifestyle changes can help reduce or eliminate snoring. As part of "Stop Snoring Week" we'll explore some  top tips to silence the snore and enjoy a peaceful night's sleep.

Snoring occurs when air cannot move freely through the nose and throat during sleep. This causes the surrounding tissues to vibrate, producing the familiar snoring sound. Factors such as the anatomy of your mouth, obesity, alcohol consumption, and nasal problems can contribute to snoring.

Tips To  Help

Change Your Sleep Position

Believe it or not, your sleeping position can significantly impact snoring. Sleeping on your back often worsens snoring, allowing the base of your tongue and soft palate to collapse to the back of your throat, obstructing airflow. Try sleeping on your side instead to keep your airway open and reduce snoring.

Consider Anti-Snoring Devices

There are various anti-snoring devices available on the market that can help alleviate snoring. From nasal dilators and mouthpieces to positional therapy devices, there's a solution for every type of snorer. Please consult with a healthcare professional to figure out which anti-snoring device is best suited for your needs.

Stay Hydrated

Dehydration can cause snoring to be worse by thickening the mucus in your throat and nasal passages, leading to congestion and difficulty breathing. Make sure to stay hydrated throughout the day by drinking plenty of water. Avoid excessive consumption of caffeinated beverages and alcohol, as they can contribute to dehydration.

Keep Your Nasal Passages Clear

Nasal congestion can contribute to snoring by obstructing airflow through the nose. To keep your nasal passages clear, try using saline nasal sprays or nasal strips to help open up the airways. Additionally, consider investing in a humidifier which will add moisture to the air and can alleviate congestion and reduce snoring.

Invest in a Quality Mattress and Pillow

Your mattress and pillow can also affect snoring. An old or sagging mattress may not provide adequate support for your neck and spine, leading to poor sleep posture and increased snoring.

Invest in a quality mattress and pillow that promotes proper alignment and comfort to reduce snoring and improve sleep quality.


Snoring may seem like a harmless annoyance, but it can have significant implications for your health and well-being. By implementing these stop-snoring tips during Stop Snoring Week (and beyond), you can take steps to help silence the snore and enjoy a restful night's sleep.
