Talking to Your Partner About Snoring

If your partner snores, you know how difficult getting a good night’s sleep can be. Not only will you wake feeling restless, but your partner may not even realize that there is a problem. In some cases, snoring can lead to marriage problems. Before snoring interrupts your relationship, have a talk with your partner.

Discussing snoring is not an easy topic. Your partner may be in denial. As you start the conversation, avoid placing blame. Explain to your partner how their snoring is affecting you. During the conversation, stress how worried you are about them. Offer to work together to resolve the issue.

Now that you have had this all important conversation, ask your partner to see their physician. Remember, snoring can be caused by a serious health condition. One of the most serious conditions is sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, the patient will temporarily stop breathing. Luckily, this can easily be treated. When your partner visits the physician, tag along. Explain to the doctor what you are hearing at night. This can help the physician make a proper diagnosis.

After getting a clear bill of health, encourage your partner to make simple lifestyle changes. This includes things like losing weight and avoiding alcohol before bedtime. Whatever you do, avoid sleeping in separate rooms. Not only will your partner feel resentment, but intimacy will be greatly reduced.

While dealing with a snoring partner can be a challenge, there is help out there. If one thing does not work, keep tying until you are both getting a good nights sleep. Find a solution that works for both of you.

Top Symptoms of Snoring

4 Major Snoring Symptoms

If you have a significant other, chances are you are already aware of any snoring problems that you may have. However, if you are single, your significant other shies away from confrontation, your significant other is a deep sleeper, or you and your significant other have very different sleep schedules, you may have a snoring problem that you are completely unaware of. More importantly, this snoring could be part of a larger, more significant health risk. Snore Mart has compiled a list of five major snoring symptoms that are common warning signs.

  1. Frequent waking at night – if you find yourself waking up frequently during the night to urinate or get a glass of water, your rest may actually be interrupted by your breathing habits. The lack of oxygen and the constant noise can cause you to sleep more lightly and rise at the slightest interruption.
  2. Headaches and irritability – even if you have unbroken sleep, your uneasy rest could manifest in the form of morning headaches, irritability and even depressive episodes. If you feel the need to nap during the day in order to recuperate, it could easily be a sign that your nighttime rest is not as productive as it could be.
  3. Sore mouth and throat – one of the easiest signs of snoring to recognize is a sore throat. Snoring is a physically grueling process, and most snorers experience cottonmouth and pain in their throat when they wake in the morning. If you cannot get comfortable when you wake until you have a glass of water, snoring may be the cause of your discomfort. Similarly, if you find yourself breathing from your mouth instead of your nose during the day, the same is likely happening when you sleep, a common symptom amongst snorers.
  4. Memory and concentration problems – restful sleep benefits your brain even more than it benefits the rest of your body. Without a consistent sleep schedule, your brain will gradually suffer stronger and more frequent symptoms of fatigue, especially when it comes to short term memory and the ability to concentrate.

If you find yourself recognizing two or more of these symptoms on a regular basis, you should strongly consider consulting a physician. In extreme cases sleep apnea, a severe and potentially lethal disease, can be the source of these problems.

My Snoring Solution Chin Strap

Plain and simply put, snoring is annoying and disturbs the sleep of others unfortunate enough to sleep within earshot of it. Snoring occurs when the passage of air is hindered due to a clogged airway. Restricted air movement causes vibrations in the throat which creates the sound we all know as snoring. My Snoring Solution Chin Strap is an inexpensive, natural and simple stop snoring solution that works to “unclog” the airway so that air can flow freely- and quietly!

My Snoring Solution Chin Strap opens the airway in your throat by holding your lower jaw in a forward and closed position. Supporting the lower jaw during sleep prevents it from falling back and closing off the airway. When the lower jaw is held in a forward and closed position, the muscles and tissues that were once blocking your airway and causing you to snore are no longer restricting airflow.

My Snoring Solution Chin Strap will eliminate or reduce the sound of snoring while you sleep by holding your jaw snugly in place. Easy to put on and comfortable to wear, you and those around you can get a good night’s sleep without the use of drugs or a trip to the doctor.

My Snoring Solution Chin Strap is made from comfortable and durable fabrics as follows:
  • Body composed of 100% Polyester
  • Lining composed of 81% Nylon, 19% Spandex

It easily stretches to fit over your head and uses two elastic straps to hold everything in place, preventing it from falling off in the night. My Snoring Solution Chin Strap can also be easily worn with a CPAP machine.

My Snoring Solution Chin Strap can help you get a snore-free good night’s sleep so you can wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
