« Jet Lag: Affecting the Brain Long after the Holiday Season is Over! | Main | Is Your Baby Sleeping through the Night? »

December 16, 2010


Thank you so much for this article! After reading it, my partner-who is a snoring sufferer- was very worried of all the terrible effects of snoring. So after his visit to the doctor we found his solution on the internet on the website-

Basically we bought an anti-snoring mouthpiece that he wears at night. My partner said that the mouthpiece was comfortable as it moulds to the shape of your mouth and it works by gently holding your lower jaw in a slightly forward position while you sleep, which opens up the airway in your throat and causes the air to slow down and flow through more freely, therefore eliminating your snoring basically from day one! From then on his snoring has virtually been none-existent and so have our worries of him getting metabolic syndrome!

Great post. I find the difficulties and choices made by couples in their sleeping habits to be fascinating. I’d love to read more on this topic.

Here’s a recent article I particularly enjoyed on couples’ sleeping arrangements:

I’d love to see more like it. Thanks!
