One third of people worldwide make a new year’s resolution every year. Is banishing snoring one of your resolutions?
Keeping a New Year’s goal in mind can be notoriously difficult.

If you keep your household awake all night, we can help you achieve your new year’s resolution to stop snoring.
With Snoreeze, you can lead a happier, healthier life, free of daytime sleepiness. And if you mention your new goal to your family and friends? Your chances of achieving your resolution could increase – especially if they gift you with a late Snoreeze Christmas present!
How to keep your new year’s resolution to stop snoring
You should discover what’s causing your snoring first. That way, your resolution will become much easier to achieve. Narrow down your search with the following questions:
1) Are you snoring loudly every night?
The main cause of snoring is relaxed muscle tension in the upper airway. This relaxation leads to narrowed airways, vibration of soft tissue and the unmistakable sound of snoring. Snoreeze products such as Snoreeze Throat Spray and Oral Strips provide relief for this type of snoring, and are clinically proven to be effective for up to 8 hours.
2) Are you snoring because of a blocked nose/cold?
Colds, allergies and a blocked nose can also cause snoring as the nasal passages become congested, limiting airflow and making you more likely to snore. Both Snoreeze Nasal Spray and Nasal Strips are targeted towards providing relief for snoring caused by nasal congestion.
3) Are you snoring because you’re suffering from sleep apnoea?
Do you experience mood changes, forgetfulness or a lack of concentration in the daytime? Do you ever wake up with a very sore or dry throat? If so, you’re likely to have sleep apnoea – a sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep.
When an apnoea occurs, airflow during sleep is prevented from entering the lungs by a temporary obstruction. The obstruction is because of a lack of muscle tension in the upper airway which causes the airway to collapse. Sometimes the base of the tongue may partially or fully close the airway.
If you experience any of these symptoms, we recommend that you consult your doctor straightaway. An option to treat sleep disordered breathing is the Snoreeze Oral Device. Its adjustable design gently positions the jaw in a forward position to clear the obstructed airway and provide effective relief.
New Year’s resolutions can be difficult to stick to. But by sorting out your sleep, you can make a promise to say goodbye to sleepless nights – and hello to a healthier 2018.
