Snoring is a huge problem that results in one in three couples in the UK opting to sleep alone to get a better night’s sleep*. Are you one of them?
If so, fear not as there are several snoring aids out there to help tackle the problem!
This week marks the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association’s annual National Stop Snoring Week. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the bedding experts, Slumberdown, to give you the chance to win one of Slumberdown’s Anti Snore pillows everyday this week.
The Anti Snore pillow is designed with an ‘S’ shaped inner foam core, which helps encourage better breathing by supporting the head and neck. The snuggly hollowfibre filling creates soft and super-comfy orthopaedic support. The 100% natural cotton cover is delicate and cool to touch, plus it’s great at naturally regulating body temperature throughout the night.
Each day one winner will be picked at random. All you have to do to enter is FOLLOW both Sleep Council and Slumberdown on Twitter and RETWEET the competition post. Alternatively LIKE both Sleep Council and Slumberdown on Facebook. Then SHARE and COMMENT on the competition post.
The competition closes at 3pm each day (from 24-28 April). The winners will be announced on The Sleep Council’s Twitter and Facebook pages by 5pm.
Slumberdown has also given us its top tips on how to reduce snoring:
Try sleeping on your side and get some feedback from your partner as to which side is your quieter side.
Avoid drinking too much alcohol, taking sleeping pills or anti-histamines as these will cause your muscles to relax and limit your air passage.
Avoid a big meal just before bed as this will push on your diaphragm when you lie down and limit breathing. Dairy products can also cause a build-up of mucus which won’t help.
It’s also worth trying anti-snoring products such as sprays, mandibular devices, electronic buzzers, nasal strips/dialators and humidifiers to help reduce congestion. Not all of them work for everyone though, so you’ll need to experiment to see which one works best for you.
*Slumberdown carried out research with a national sample of 2,038 adults. Results were broken down by age, gender and location.
At Slumberdown, we think that a good night’s sleep is something that every family deserves. That’s why all our bedding delivers the perfect mix of quality fabrics, cuddly soft fillings and unique features to meet the needs of all the family.
We know it can be a nightmare finding the right duvet & pillows for you. Which is why we have created a whole range of special duvets, pillows, toppers & protectors to make sure the whole family can sleep happy.
To enter you must be a UK resident over the age of 18
