Try this: 1. Sleep on the side or have soft ball on the back to prevent sleeping supine. 2.Improve nasal congestion and its management if present by like nasal saline or neti pot . 3.Alternate nostril breathing and or slow deep breathing exercise for 15-20 minutes before bedtime and morning if possible. 4. Nasal strips for some.

Stay off your back: There are many causes of snoring, but positional causes are most common. You should lose weight if you're overweight. If you have excessive sleepiness during the day you may have sleep apnea which is a serious condition. An oral appliance can help stop snoring by advancing the tongue and jaw. A sleep study is necessary to diagnose sleep apnea. See a healthcare provider to assess your risk.

Find out why: The best is to find out why you snore. Is it just when you are really tired? Or, do you have sleep apnea? The best way to find out is to do an overnight sleep study, which a doctor needs to order.
