    lol, I don't mind, but I noticed that I tend to do some light :sleep: as well. I noticed that when I'm lying in bed, it gets hard to breath (which I think is leading to the light snoring) so I try to position my pillow in a certain way and that somehow helps me breath better; but does this really reduce the light snoring or is it just a placebo effect? : /

    From this site:

    (Original post by HelpGuide )
    Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. There are specially designed pillows available to help prevent snoring by making sure your neck muscles are not crimped.
    I tried to move my jaw forward whilst trying to sleep; breathing was better but I get tired and stopped moving my jaw forward afterwards lol.

    I'm thinking of buying this pillow:

    Do you think it works?

    Any suggestions are most welcome.

    You snore when you are lying on your back, an elevated pillow like that looks like it's only usable when you're ON your back... :holmes:

    If that's the only way you can sleep then maybe it'd work, but tbh just sleeping on your side/front is far simpler.


    The pillow looks like it pushes your neck forwards, so that your jaw is kept shut. Would most likely work but might be a bit uncomfortable at first, you could experiment with something at home that does the same thing, all you'd need is some depth and a semi-rigid edge so that your neck can't compress it too much

    Some people snore even when they sleep on their sides.

    Is that snoring though, or just breathing in and out loudly?
