We may call sleeping “catching some zzzs”, but if we are discussing HEALTHY sleep, that’s not a good name for it. Why? Although almost everyone does it once in awhile – when they have a cold or have had too much to drink – snoring, in general, isn’t cute, fun, or even ok.
Snoring is caused by resistance in the airway. This usually occurs when the tissues of the throat are so lax or narrow that air can’t pass through in a normal way. That means the amount of air getting to your lungs is decreased, your heart has to work harder, your sleep cycles are interrupted – and it all interferes with healthy living.
