Restful sleep tips and advice
Your body needs about 7-8 hours of undisturbed sleep each night to allow you to have a good day. If you are awakened continually by yours and your partners snoring, you suffer from all sorts of unpleasant things.
- You are continually tired, which affects your health in many ways
- You can fall asleep at the wheel
- You may be suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (see you doctor soon!)
- You are typically irritable
- You may be falling asleep at work
- You may be falling asleep in meetings
- Your partner is unhappy because you keep them awake
What is a good sleep routine that will help me sleep better?
- Avoid daytime naps
- Allow the non-snorers to get to sleep first
- Avoid tranquillizers, sleeping pills and antihistamines before bedtime.
- Avoid alcoholic beverages within three hours of retiring
- Eat meals on a regular schedule. Don't eat a large meal close to your bedtime. (Your body needs time to digest)
- Raise the entire bed with the head upwards
- Limit or stop using nicotine, caffeine (especially close to bedtime). Try avoiding coffee, tea or caffeinated sodas in the afternoon
- Exercise during the day (but not too close to bedtime)
- Sleep on your side rather then on your back - Sleeping on the back causes snoring in that it keeps you from benefiting from a normal sleep relax. Sleeping on the side causes a natural reflex to decongest the nostril on the opposite side, allowing easier breathing through the nasal passage. Sleeping on the back disturbs this normal reflex.
- Exercise daily to develop good muscle tone and lose weight
Important read before use!
- AntiSnor rings are only suitable for adults over 18 and should not be worn by pregnant females.
- DO NOT wear the rings if you have a heart pacemaker any other electrical device fitted.
- The ring is a small object and should be kept away from small children when not in use.
- If you believe your snoring is caused by a medical condition e.g. sleep apnea you should not wear the ring and seek medical advice from a medical practitioner.
- If you are a particularly heavy snorer and wearing one ring does not achieve the desired effect quite often the wearing of two rings (one on each little finger) will succeed.
- If alcohol is a cause of snoring the ring may not function as well as when the wearer has not consumed alcohol.
