They say that we’ll spend one-third of our lives sleeping. If you sleep an average of eight hours a night from birth to age 75, that is about 25 years snoozing, or 9,125 days spent asleep. Now, we all don’t get a solid eight hours a night. If you have kids, you’re lucky to get half of that during their newborn and toddler years. Or, if you have a partner that snores like it is their job, you might often be woken up while you’re trying to rest.

Snoring happens when air cannot move freely through your nasal passages and throat while you’re sleeping. One reason that people snore is that a person has too much throat or nasal tissue, or “floppy” tissue, that is more prone to vibration. Also, the position of a person’s tongue can get in the way of proper, smooth breathing during sleep. The older you get, the more likely you can become prone to snoring. Weight gain can also contribute to snoring, as well as gender. Men tend to have narrower air passageways and that can make them more likely to snore.

If you know someone who snores (or you’re the snorer in your relationship), you might want to look into a new option to cut down on the noise. Aldi UK has brought back its famous anti-snoring pillow. And for £5.99, how can anyone resist buying this? It can be ordered online or purchased in Aldi UK stores.

The pillow is made with a special S-shaped foam core that raises the sleeper’s head to keep their airways clear. This design is what helps stop people from snoring because the airflow doesn’t allow for the vibration that causes snoring. The cover is made from 100 percent cotton and the pillow can only be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Now, this product is only available in stores and online to people in the UK. If you live in the U.S., thankfully Amazon exists and you can get an anti-snore pillow of your own. It is a little pricier than the Aldi UK pillow, but still a great deal for the product. FitPlus sells a wedge memory foam pillow that not only helps with snoring, it also can help with acid reflux, back and neck pain, and similar ailments. It also gives the right amount of support for those who like to sit up in bed and watch television! The pillow has four stars and over 1,600 reviews on Amazon. Right now, you can get this pillow on sale for $34.95.

There are some other ways that you can stop snoring as well. Sometimes it can be as simple as changing your sleep position. Sleeping on your back can allow your tongue to get in the way and cause snoring, so you might want to try sleeping on your side. Practicing better “sleep hygiene” is one option as well, but it has nothing to do with your bed sheets. Instead, you should avoid a lack of sleep. When you’re too tired, this can also cause snoring, so having a more consistent sleep schedule can help. Another option is to open your nasal passages, as narrow airways tend to cause snoring. You can take a hot shower before bed, use a neti pot, or wear nasal strips to open things up a bit.
