Reduce snoring

According to the NHS, losing weight if you are overweight can help to relieve snoring.

Losing weight also brings direct benefits to heart health because being overweight forces your heart to work harder to pump blood around your body, which can raise your blood pressure, a precursor to heart attacks.

The health body also recommends trying the following self-help tips to relieve snoring:

Sleep on your side – try taping a tennis ball to the back of your Sleepwear, or buy a special pillow or bed wedge to help keep you on your side

Consider asking your partner to use ear plugs if your snoring affects their sleep

You should also shun unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking and drinking too much alcohol to treat snoring, says the health site.

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption also hike your risk for developing cardiovascular complications.
