Snoring is one of the many classic annoyances that provoke those mini-lover quarrels between couples. Of course, that shouldn’t be enough reason to move out and move on. But it is inevitable to get annoyed when your partner snores every night while all you want is a peaceful, quiet night after a long, tiring day. If you wake up in the middle of the night, several times a week, then it’s hard to complete the required eight hours of sleep. Wouldn’t you feel grumpy when you’re sleep-deprived? Most of us will do!
You may want to blame your partner for your eyebags, grumpiness, brain fog, and daytime sleepiness, yet, it’s not his fault either. Because who would want to be tagged as a “loud snorer” or the “worst snorer of all time”? Nobody. So, why don’t we just get to the bottom of the problem? Let’s get to know more why people snore.
Why Some People Snore
Actually, you yourself might snore at least once in your life, for example, when you have a runny nose or nasal congestion. But once it’s treated, everything is back to normal again. On the other hand, for many people, this is a chronic problem that every night, you know for sure they’re going to sleep noisily. Some underlying health issues are probably causing this.
According to Mayo Clinic, as you progress from a night of light sleep to deep sleep, the muscles in your tongue, soft palate, and throat relax. The tissues in your throat may relax enough resulting in a narrowed airway, causing the tissues to vibrate. The loud vibration causes the loud sound we know too well as a snore. The narrower the airway, the worse the snoring sound is produced.
Some conditions can be the possible cause of snoring. These include the anatomy of one’s mouth and sinus, alcohol consumption, nasal congestion, sleep position, obesity, and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Read more about that here. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea, it is important to consult your doctor as soon as possible to avoid the complications that may occur as a result of this condition.
How Smart Nora Anti-Snoring Device Can Help
First of all, Nora is not a medical device. It is rather, a lifestyle enhancement device that helps both the snorer and his partner enjoy a quiet, peaceful, restful and uninterrupted sleep each night. To date, Nora is the first smart and non-invasive anti-snoring device according to its creators and designers. It is designed to stop one’s snoring before it actually disturbs the other person sleeping on the same bed.

The Smart Nora Anti-Snoring device package comes with the Nora Bedsider, pillow insert, and a portable bag where a rechargeable battery is placed along with a mini pump. How does Smart Nora work anyway? First, you have to switch the Nora Bedsider on. This looks like a white computer mouse that you place beside your bed, perhaps on a bedside table. Next, you have to place the pillow insert under your pillow. The pillow insert is connected to the mini pump in the portable bag. You can simply place the portable bag under your bed.
As the snoring begins, the Nora Bedsider senses the sound causing the mini-pump in the portable bag to inflate and deflate the padded insert which will then result in silent and gentle movements in the pillow. The slight movement that Smart Nora does to your head stimulates your throat muscles. This enables your natural breathing to resume which then stops you from snoring.
What people love about Nora is that it works with any pillow or sleeping position. There’s also no need to wear anything on your face such as a mask or nose strips. Nora allows you to go to bed each night with ease and it’s actually adding more comfort by normalizing your breathing patterns and stopping you from snoring. Also, your partner won’t be annoyed anymore. Think about that—no more mini-fights that your snoring causes a few times or many times each week!
Nora is right for people who want to stop snoring in a pretty much normal and non-invasive way. It must be noted though that it is best to consult your physician to determine the underlying health issues that may be causing your chronic snoring.
