Snoring can undermine the quality of sleep. Lifestyle changes that can help to curb snoring:

  • Try losing weight - even just 10 pounds.
     
  • Instead of sleeping on your back, try sleeping on your side.
     
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
     
  • Don't eat large, heavy meals - particularly within about two hours of heading to bed.
     
  • Don't take a sedative, which relaxes the muscles in your throat and increases snoring.
