Holiday Stress Relief Is a Good Night's Sleep Away

Makers of anti-snoring device Snore Guard® offer holiday tips for a
"silent
    night"

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. 7, 2011 /CNW/ -- The joy of the holiday season is often accompanied by the stress of busy holiday preparations, financial strain, disrupted routines and family visits. One of the best cures for holiday stress is restful, restorative sleep, but a good night's sleep can be elusive.

Ranir, makers of Snore Guard, the over-the-counter device that is clinically proven to help eliminate snoring, offers the following tips for getting a good night's sleep:

--  Don't over-imbibe. That extra cup of cheer may help you fall asleep
        faster, but it also reduces your sleep quality, waking you up in the
        wee hours. Stay away from alcohol in the hours before bedtime to help
        you sleep through the night.
    --  Maintain your exercise routine. Exercise can help you fall asleep
        faster and sleep more soundly, but holiday hustle and bustle can take
        precedence. Work out early in the day so you don't run out of time. A
        workout too close to bedtime may keep you awake.
    --  Keep your room cool. It's tempting to crank up the heat to help shake
        off the winter cold, but a bedroom that's too hot or too cold can
        interfere with quality sleep. Most people sleep best in a slightly
cool
        room (around 18 degrees C) with adequate ventilation.
    --  Put your anxieties to bed. If you lie awake at night mentally making
        your list and checking it twice, stop! Keep a pad and pen on the
        nightstand so you can write down your to do list and fall asleep
        knowing you can tackle it in the morning.
    --  Prevent snoring. A long winter's nap isn't so restful when you or your
        partner is snoring away. About 45 percent of adults snore, according
to
        the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology, affecting not just their own
        sleep but also keeping spouses or partners awake, causing anxiety,
        irritability and tension. In independent clinical studies, 99 percent
        of participants reported reduced snoring and 50 percent reported
        elimination of snoring with the use of Snore Guard.(1)

"Of the many obstacles to getting a good night's sleep over the holidays, snoring is one that can be easily addressed with the proper device," said Dr. Tim Barker, D.M.D., of White Rock, British Columbia. "Snore Guard costs hundreds less than other snoring remedies, is easy to use and is highly effective in helping people stop snoring so they and their partners can get the rest they need to enjoy the holiday season."

Patented Snore Guard is available at most major Canadian retailers for less than $60.
