If you’re looking for ways to stop snoring, then you’re in the right place. These 12 ways to stop snoring from BRIGHT SIDE on Youtube could help you. The good thing about these is they’re natural and won’t break your bank for trying. Watch the video below to learn the following tips. 


#1 Sleep on your side

When you sleep on your back, the base of your tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of your throat. This process obstructs breathing and causes loud snoring. Sleeping on your side however keeps your throat open and this allows for better breathing.

#2 Quit smoking

Smoking also irritates the lining of your nasal cavities and throat. Your nasal passage gets congested so breathing through your nose becomes more and more difficult. This process never stops since congestion only increases with each cigarette you smoke.

#3 Elevate your pillow

Elevating your pillow can help you get rid of snoring within just one or two nights. When you lie low, you put pressure on your airway and make it harder for yourself to breathe. But elevating your head has the complete opposite effect taking this pressure off and helping you breathe steadily.

#4 Drink more water

There are certain secretions in our nose and soft palate that become stickier if we don’t drink enough water. This leads to an airway obstruction that can create snoring. That’s why drinking at least eight glasses of water every day is important.

#5 Clean your room

Allergies play a major role in snoring. Nasal congestion and inflammation basically leave your system with no other choice. So when nothing else is working, maybe it’s time to get tested for allergies.


#6 Stick to a healthier diet

Excess weight, especially around the neck, can lead to constant snoring. According to a study published in the medical journal lung India, a lot of people who snore have a larger neck circumference than those who don’t snore. Plus, the excess weight on your neck can cause your throat to become narrow when you’re lying down.

#7 Cut down on the alcohol

More alcohol means more snoring. Alcohol relaxes your airway muscles way too much leading to even further airway collapse and worse snoring. It’s better to remove alcohol from your life altogether apart from celebrations and big events of course.

#8 Take some vitamin C

One of the main causes of airway blockage that leads to snoring is clogged-up sinuses. Vitamin C can help by clearing the sinuses, boosting your immune system, and promoting respiratory health.

#9 Use eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is widely known for clearing up chest colds. Raw eucalyptus reduces inflammation and improves respiratory conditions. Eucalyptus essential oil on the other hand is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.

#10 Keep a sleeping diary

Each snoring case is different and what works for your friend may not for you. That’s why you need a sleeping diary. If you live with your partner, you ask them to keep track of your snoring. You can try anti-snoring methods each day.

#11 Use natural recipes

You can find tons of recipes online for home remedies against snoring but if you’re looking for the best, then try this recipe out. Blend two carrots, two apples, 1/4 of a lemon, 1 stick of ginger, and 1 cup of orange juice together. Simply drink the mixture a couple of hours before bedtime.

#12 Do anti-snoring exercises

Start by pursing your lips for about 30 seconds. Then, say the vowels A, E, and O out loud for about two minutes each. After this, it’s time to work on your jaw. Open your mouth and shift your jaw to the left, hold it for about 30 seconds, then shift it to the right and hold it there for another 30 seconds.
