In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I have always been hyper-OCD about certain sounds causing me mental distress. For example, when someone has a cold, the sound of them sniffing obsessively makes me inwardly homicidal. Likewise, a running toilet puts me on the precipice of madness. So when my fiance suddenly became a snorer three years and eight months into our relationship, I couldn’t just call it a dealbreaker and bail-we live together and share a dog, so we can’t break up over the fact that his midnight sinus warbling are freaking killing me.
Sometimes I’ll take a melatonin before bed because it puts me in such a deep state of REM that the rumble of the truck laying next to me goes unnoticed; other times I’ll just gently roll the snorer onto his side, lessening the likelihood, for whatever biological reason, that it will last all night. A couple nights ago, I even put on his soundproof headset, but the vibrations still pummeled through so I moved out onto the couch and shivered through the night under a thin blanket like Oliver Twist. Occasionally, I’ll resort to meanness, implying during the light of day that last night’s music is probably related to his marginal weight gain. Oops. The snorer is out of town for a week on business, so I’m getting a full night’s rest, though it’s a lonely one. When he gets back, I’ll have Breathe Right strips waiting, but in the event they don’t work, I’ll need a Plan B. Got any ideas Frisky girls? I really am missing my uninterrupted dream life and don’t want to have to kill someone to get it back.
If you’re in search of a good night’s sleep, snoring ear plugs may be able to help. Unnecessary stress can be put on a marriage or a domestic partnership by noisy bedroom habits. Deep snorers unwittingly tighten the vice on their relationships night after night.
Hope is available in the form of tiny, pliable snoring ear plugs. Ear plugs are easy to find, and generally inexpensive. It is doubtful that you need the best hearing protection unless your partner snores like a shipyard, so even cheap earplugs should be able to deaden the sound they make.
You can most likely find earplugs for sale at your local corner store or drugstore. They are also available online, and usually cost no more than 10 dollars. It’s a great deal for the solace that they offer, you can try these out.
Snoring Ear Plugs Are Great for Adults and Kids
Ear plugs are generally available in many sizes, and are made of many kinds of materials. Softer earplugs made from cotton, lanolin, and/or wax may be the most comfortable for sleeping. Other designs made be fashioned out of plastic and may be a little longer, and not as easy to wear if you toss and turn during the night.
