Many of us have come across at least one snorer in our lifetimes and it's most definitely irked us due to the way it has affected our sleep (you may even be the guilty culprit yourself!) And yet: what is snoring really a sign of? Is it good, bad, healthy? Is it something we should be getting checked up at the doctors? Or is it just something we can nag at about to our snoring relatives? Therefore, here at Furnitureful we’ve decided that we just had to create this blog all about the sleeping phenomen to help you folks out there also understand it too. We’ll go through what snoring is, the different types of snorers as well as what you can do to reduce signs and symptoms. So, without further ado, let's dive right into it!
So, first things first…
What is snoring all about?
Snoring is when a person emits a harsh/hoarse sound out through their throat due to the way air flows through the relaxed throat tissues which then vibrate. This is a phenomenon that can occur in anyone and usually leads to irritation on the parts of others.
What are some of the most common causes of snoring?
Common cause 1: Being overweight/obese/not in shape
Two of the biggest contributors to snoring are fatty tissue and poor muscle tone so it might be time to get out the running gear again.
Common cause 2: Age
When you reach middle age and beyond your throat becomes more narrow and the muscle tone of your throat muscles also decreases. Things to help alleviate this that an individual can do are exercise (especially throat ones) and new bedtime routines.
