A snoring spouse = 687 hours less sleep per year per bedmate

Provided By:

(NC)-With sixty-six per cent of Canadian households saying they have a snoring partner who snores on average four and half nights a week, it's no wonder that many claim they can lose one to three hours of sleep a night. On average, that equals nearly 687 hours of sleep lost per year due to a partner's roars and rumblings.

Inevitably, the impact on the bed buddy can be significant. According to a new Breathe Right Index Report, nearly half of Canadians with snoring partners felt sleepy for up to five hours a week because of their restless slumber the night before. Not only did it dampen their mood, but it affected their quality of work (22%), timeliness to complete planned chores and errands (27%), and women's desire, in particular, to have sex with their partner (21%).

"Sleep is so precious these days in our fast-paced lives," says Dr. Adam Moscovitch, medical director for the Canadian Sleep Institute. "We already lose enough of it because of work deadlines and family responsibilities, so we can't afford to lose another hour more - never mind an average of three - because of something as manageable as snoring."

According to Dr. Moscovitch, more often than not though, the snoring can be corrected by relieving blocked or congested nasal passages, among other things. Sometimes solutions can be as simple as using nasal strips like Breathe Right, which are a drug-free option that have been clinically proven to improve air flow to instantly relieve nasal congestion. Other strategies may also help reduce the snoring like losing weight, quitting smoking, or sleeping on your side. If the snoring persists, however, talk to your doctor.
