How to stop snoring 'for good' – the 'best' and 'worst' sleeping positions unveiled

Sharing a bed with a snorer can be a sure sign you’re in for a bad night’s sleep. However, even for the culprit of the snores, there’s a wealth of evidence to suggest they may not be getting the most restful night either.

However, it isn’t just the position you sleep in which could be causing you to snore.

According to the NHS, being overweight can cause people to snore.

Ms Amini said: “Weight gain can trigger snoring, as it increases tissue around your neck and throat, meaning your airways are more likely collapse when you’re asleep.

“Shedding a couple of pounds through exercise can strengthen your neck muscles to prevent snoring and help you lose the extra tissue.”

Ms Amini said: “If your stomach is too full at night your diaphragm may not have enough room to expand while breathing, disrupting sleep.

“Steer clear of dairy products which increase congestion, and stick to high-protein foods at dinner time such as salmon, tuna and turkey which will combat mucus production and help prevent snoring.”

Finally, sticking to a set bedtime and making sure you get enough rest can ward off a noisy night.

Ms Amini added: “People tend to snore louder and more frequently when they’re sleep-deprived.

“To prevent exhaustion, improve your sleep hygiene habits by following a consistent bedtime schedule, avoiding screens before bed, and eating light, healthy dinners before bed.”
