Snoring as a Phenomenon
Many people consider snoring extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing due to the sound produced in the process. Namely, while we are sleeping, the muscles in our throat get too relaxed thus narrowing the air pathways causing air friction and vibration we define as snoring. This characteristic sound has been claimed to prevent people close to those who produce it from having enough sleep and lead normal lives due to this deprivation. Furthermore, some sources say that this negative habit has resulted in many divorces and broken hearts, since the non-snoring spouse or partner is simply not capable of withstanding anymore of this. Also, numerous health conditions regarding heart problems as well as many others, have all been proven to be connected with snoring.
Nevertheless, this condition is often easy to be removed. A simple change of a pillow, or making a bed mattress higher in the head part may do the trick. But sometimes, snoring may have it's own benefits. The following claims mostly come from people who tend to snore, explaining the very purpose of this habit.
Confessions of a Snoring Person
Some of the people who snore often claim that this action serves as an excellent indicator of one being alive, especially after a night out drinking. Subsequently, as long as a person snores, he or she is breathing, and therefore is well.
Other people who tend to snore may find justifications for their “activity” in statistics. Namely, taking into consideration that only in the UK, more than 15 million people snore, non-snoring part of the population may end up being the “strange” minority. Additionally, people who snore perhaps only want to be alone in their beds, using the snoring technique as their means of achieving such conditions. Remarkably enough, some people recommend sleeping on your back as a great addition to your snoring capability, resulting in a wider sound range and volume, capable of matching even your neighbors who have asked for it since they have been snoring you sleepless beforehand.
Those interested in history and celebrities may be happy to know that Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln had snoring habits as well. Moreover, even Elizabeth Taylor and Tom Cruise cause people next to them plenty of sleep deprivation due to their own frequent snoring.
A Sensible Conclusion
This article may have been futile in terms of defending people who snore. However, these people may have come to these remarks due to their status of not having normal sleeping habits. Most of them have probably been forced to use jaw straps, nasal strips and other items for eliminating snoring, making them feel awkward. All in all, people who snore are not aware of the consequences of their habits. Therefore, this article may act as a plead to their defense, motivating their partners to be more understanding and selfless.
