Winter sniffles and snoring

As freezing temperatures are forecast to continue into the weekend, the UK is wrapping-up to stay warm in the run up to Christmas. For many of us, we’ve already received our first surprise gift of the festive season… a cold!

But what does a cold have to do with snoring?

Well, a lot more than you may think. A typical symptom of the common cold is a nasal congestion. This can cause obstruction of the nasal passages, forcing you to breathe through your mouth which can lead to snoring.

Nasal irritation often increases during the night which can further increase the impact that a blocked nose can have on snoring.

What can I do?

  • If you frequently suffer from nasal congestion because of a cold or flu, try to eat a healthy, balanced diet and drink plenty of fluids to boost your immune system. 
  • The cold virus is contagious and can be passed-on by another person if you come into an object they have touched. Washing your hands frequently can help to mimiize your risks of contracting a cold from this.
  • The cold virus can enter your body through you nose and eyes, so try to avoid frequently touching them with your hands.

This video by NHS Choices provides some useful information on how to prevent contracting a virus.
