My dad has been a snorer for as long as I've known him and I've been told that I'm a snorer too. In fact, my daughter, Tara informed me that she could hear me from a couple of rooms away.

If you suffer from sleep apnea, then it's not a bad idea to get a CPAP machine. I know that it's helped me and I probably should have gotten one sooner. A study was done and it found that 40% of us snore without realizing it.

Not surprisingly, that increases after you turn 50 years old. If you don't have sleep apnea but snore then there are some things that Woman's World suggests that you can try, that'll have you in a deep sleep tonight.

Ways To Stop-Snoring Tonight

Make a funny face - Open your mouth and put your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Then tighten the muscles you use to swallow, so you feel your tongue tight against the top of your mouth.

Hold it for five seconds. This will improve your airway and lessen the amount of vibration that happens with each breath and will decrease your snoring.

Rub eucalyptus on your feet - Eucalyptus oil helps to clear sinuses and there is new evidence that shows that if you rub it on the soles of your feet, it can reduce snoring. Michelle Ebbin, the author of "Hands on Feet" says that when you press on specific areas, you can improve the flow of blood and oxygen directly to your sinuses.

This opens air passageways so you can breathe better and it'll help to reduce your snoring. This reminds me of the time when my lower back was bothering me and I had a massage therapist help fix my problem.

She started at my shoulders and I said, "no, the pain is lower." She told me that the pain in my lower back was a symptom and the problem was actually in my shoulders...She was right.

Try double-sheeting - The extra top sheet draws moisture away from your skin as you sleep. This will keep your temperature steady and help to stave off your snoring, so you can get a good night's sleep.

Here are some ways that will help you sleep better and help the rest of your family to get a good night's sleep too. Once again if you still have trouble snoring, it's not a bad idea to see a pulmonologist.
