About 90 million Americans snore when they sleep and 37 million people report that it affects them nightly, according to the National Sleep Foundation. In the simplest of definitions, snoring happens as a result of air being squeezed through a narrow or blocked airway.

“And the more you snore, the worse it gets,” says Dr. Martha Cortes, a New York City-based sleep expert and practicing dentist. “There is no such thing as snoring only — it’s a continuum.”

In fact, heavy snoring and sleep apnea may be linked to memory and thinking decline at an earlier age, according to a 2015 study published in Neurology.

But if you’re ready to put an end to “simple” snoring, try these five lifestyle changes for a more peaceful slumber.
