Snoring Ear Plugs
If you can’t stop the noise, at leaset block it out! Snoring ear plugs are an effective, low cost way to block out many
unwanted sounds to secure a better night’s sleep, including snoring.
While you may have control over your own breathing and snoring, you have little or no control over that of anybody else. There are some times when, simply, nothing can be done. For instance the disturbing snoring or other sound maybe coming form another room or even outside of the house. Or the body may not be tuned to the normal noises of a new location like chirping birds or heavy traffic. Overtime the body learns to tune out certain sounds. Unfortunately, iun the case of snoring, the particular frequency that human’s breathe at, and the loudness of snoring makes it difficult for us to filter this sound out.
Even if you can stop your partner’s snorts with an elbow, this means you have been woken and your sleep pattern has to start again. There are four recognized cycles in the sleep pattern. You start in a light sleep, fall into a deep sleep and finally have periods of REM sleep. It is thought that deep sleep is for recuperation of the body and REM sleep (sleep associated with Rapid Eye Movement) is for the recuperation of the mind. To get to REM sleep the body must go through the other 3 phases first. This is why waking for only a short time during the night can cause you to wake up in the morning still felling tired.
You may have been in bed for 8 or 9 hours and only been awake for a minute of two several times during the night but the 9 or 9 hours of sleep are not the right kind of sleep.
Snoring ear plugs or ear plugs just to stop unwanted noise are invaluable in allowing your body to get the recuperative sleep required fro both the mind and body and waking refreshed instead of exhausted.
There are several types of snoring ear plugs available from simple foam examples to ear plugs that have small speakers to generate white noise. It is most important that the ear plugs don’t hurt or damage your ears when you are lying on your side or rolling in the night.
The most basic ear plugs are made from a type of foam that expand after you have inserted them into your ear. There are many similar brands of this popular and inexpensive type of ear plug, so its worth trying a few different sorts until you get a model that you’re comfortable with.
