Stress – The Silent Secret behind a Noisy Night

Do you have a problem with snoring? You might be surprised to find out that the stress you’re experiencing is directly related to the snoring that you are doing. Believe it or not, they can work in both directions so let’s take a look at how stress affects your snoring and also how your snoring affects your stress levels during the day. By reducing one or the other, you may actually be able to reduce both in the process and either of these are things that we would certainly be able to do without.

Whenever we are stressed out during the day, it can cause a lot of different problems for us, many of which we may not recognize. Stress is very hard on the human body so it is certainly something that we should learn to deal with rather than allowing it to affect us negatively. Some of the things that it may do is to release certain hormones in our body which can disturb the amount of sleep that we are getting. Not only can they disturb our sleep patterns, it can cause us to snore regularly which will further disturb these patterns. By reducing our stress levels during the day, we will help to reduce the amount of these harmful hormones that exist in our body and to get a good nights sleep.

If we are snoring during the night, there’s no doubt that we are not going to be getting a good night sleep. Our body needs anywhere from seven to nine hours of sleep every night in order to feel good and refreshed during the day. If we are not getting this because we are snoring regularly, it can increase our stress levels dramatically. It then becomes a vicious circle where the more we stress during the day, the less we sleep at night. As a result of not sleeping well at night, our stress levels will increase during the next day.

In order to get rid of our stress and to get rid of the snoring, we may need to find natural ways of relaxation. Some of the more simple ways of doing so are deep meditation, breathing exercises and trying to think of positive thoughts whenever negative thoughts seem to surround us. It may also help if you get some exercise on a daily basis and eat a well-balanced diet.

Drop A Few Pounds for Silent Sleep

Although it seems that there is very little that can be done for our snoring problem naturally, you might be surprised to learn that by just dropping a few pounds, you can effectively change your sleeping habits. It is not really necessary for you to become lean and trim in order to overcome your snoring and sleep apnea problems. As a matter of fact, it is thought that if you lose only 10% of your body weight that you will notice a significant difference. Since many of us are carrying around 20 to 30% more weight than what we need, 10% is really a small amount to ask.

The real problem comes with making changes in your life that are going to affect your weight for the long term. By going with a program of diet and exercise, however, you can begin to notice changes within just a few weeks after starting. The real key is to make sure that you are at a calorie deficit on a daily basis. It is healthy for you to stay anywhere from 500 to 1000 calories below your target calorie intake for the day. Any more than this may put your body in starvation mode and might even cause an unhealthy reaction which would put additional weight on you and make you snore even more.

You don’t need to lose weight by dieting alone. As a matter of fact, it is important for you to make sure that you are getting exercise on a daily basis in order to help you lose weight. Why is this the case? Because by making small changes in two directions, both diet and exercise, you’re more than likely to at least hold on to one. Getting exercise can also help you with your snoring even if you do not lose any weight. Because you will be breathing deeply during the day and exercising your lungs, you may actually be able to breathe deeply at night without having a problem with snoring.

There’s no doubt that almost everybody will be positively affected by losing weight, not only with their problem was snoring but also with many areas of their life. If you would like to silence your sleep and really wake refreshed for a change, however, you can’t beat the effects that shedding a few pounds off of your body are going to have on you.
