Sewing a Tennis Ball Into Your PJs Can Stop Snoring, Sleep Expert Says

Speaking to This Morning, the expert brought up the fact that an increasing number of people have been snoring over lockdown, which could partly be due to them spending more time at their desks and less time exercising.

Karl Rollison, an internationally-renowned Harley Street therapist and author of Sleep Ninja explains: “When we sleep on our backs the tongue and soft palate relax, succumb to gravity and rest on the back of the throat and make a vibrating noise. The jaw also relaxes so the lips open and the mouth becomes an organic echo chamber amplifying the sound.

“So, when we snore our heads become big, squidgy speakers playing really bad music. Sleeping on your side is less restrictive on the airways and creates better airflow. This is one of the reasons unconscious people are placed in the recovery position.”

“I can vouch for this method,” he said. “Many years ago, I cracked three ribs doing martial arts and if I shifted my position during sleep I woke up in agony, so I placed a pillow in a rucksack and wore it loosely on my back – I slept like a baby. This method physically prevents you from rolling onto your back without the pain of having a tennis ball on it.”
