No one likes snoring, but it’s more than just a nighttime annoyance. Snoring affects daytime life as well, and here’s how. 


Daytime sleepiness

Studies have shown that habitual snorers are more likely to have daytime sleepiness. Those with daytime sleepiness often feel sluggish, drowsy, and fatigued throughout their day. It’s evident that these symptoms interfere with work, relationships, and school. More specifically, habitual snorers with excessive sleepiness state they feel less productive, make mistakes, and feel unable to enjoy daily activities. 


Long term health

Although snoring may seem harmless, it can be a sign of more serious health issues, like sleep apnea. Sleep Apnea is a disorder in which breathing starts and stops repeatedly during the night. Some common symptoms of this sleep disorder are insomnia, fatigue, and high blood pressure. Without the proper resources and help, this disorder can lead to serious heart issues down the line. 


Relationships

This one might be obvious, but snoring can play a detrimental role in romantic relationships. Especially if your partner is sensitive to sounds. They may begrudgingly wake up during the night due to your snoring. This lack of sleep often leads people to be less appreciative and less empathetic towards their significant other. Additionally, being kept up by snoring can affect your partner’s ability to think clearly and have better judgement, making it easy to act irritable, short tempered, and pin the blame on their snoring partner. 

A common way couples try to fix negative snoring effects is by sleeping in separate rooms, also known as getting a ‘sleep divorce’. But studies show that this leads to lack of intimacy, and in the end can be detrimental to the relationship.
