|Is Snoring Affecting Your Health?
Do you wake feeling unrested?
Do others complain about your loud snoring?
Does your spouse say that the noises you make during the night sound as if you are choking or gasping for air?
Snoring refers to the vibration sound in your throat, mouth or nose that may occur during sleep. The sound is a result of vibration caused by a narrowing airway that still requires air to pass through it. It is estimated that upwards of 45% of adults snore occasionally.
Occasional snoring seems to create little more than an annoyance to the person sleeping beside you. Upwards of 20% of people, however, experience habitual or chronic snoring.
Chronic snoring can be a symptom of a more serious condition that not only affects your bedmate, but also affects your quality of life and potentially your health. Chronic snoring can be a symptom of many disorders, one being Sleep Apnea. Apnea is defined as "the temporary reduction or cessation of breath". Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when these interruptions in breathing occur for periods of 10 seconds or longer while you sleep (with the severity of your condition determined by how many times it occurs in an hour of sleep).

Drink more water in 2012!
Your body contains between 50-80% water and needs (6-8 glasses) of water per day to function properly. While most of our daily water intake comes from foods and sources other than simply drinking a glass of water, use this resolution to simplify your water intake. Proper hydration aids in weight control, toxin release, reduces the occurrence or severity of headaches, muscle aches and much more.
To help you remember to drink more water try attaching it to tasks you already do every day.
Here is a simple schedule to show you how to easily include more water in your day.
