In my opinion, snoring can have a significant impact on people’s well being and relationship. I have personally witnessed a caring husband slept at 3am every night only to allow his wife to get a head start to catch some sleep. Because of that, this poor husband ages much faster than his peers, and his health deteriorates.
So, knowing what type of snorer you or your noisy partner are, may help in better managing the issue.
