Is your snoring keeping your partner awake at night and causing them to be sleep deprived? Sleep deprivation can contribute to lack of focus and make them feel irritable and cranky. Even when your partner eventually falls asleep, it’s likely that your snoring wakes them up a few hours later and that same snoring prevents them from falling back asleep.
You may want to consider having a sleep diagnostic test done to understand the cause of your snoring, and if there is an opportunity to remedy it.
In the meantime, you can help your partner get some rest by purchasing earplugs to help cancel out the snoring. The best earplugs for snoring should block out most noise and should have an NRR (noise reduction rating) of 30 and above. These types of earplugs can be found online, in your local drugstore, and are available from your doctor.
Following are some suggestions for earplugs in different price ranges which are all NRR30 and above:
