Weight loss if relevant... Some thin people snore terribly too!
Improve fitness generally
Don't go to bed exhausted
Reduce alcohol intake...in the evenings especially
Reduce smoking, or better...Quit!
Avoid allergens which block the nose...Keeping your pillow area covered when not using it to prevent pollens and house dust mite landing where you head will spend the next 8 hours. Have tests for House Dust mite allergies. Perhaps a change from feather pillows and bedcovers might be in order!
Treat allergic symptoms if they cannot be fully avoided, medications and surgery
Sleep on your side
Ear Plugs for the partner
Chin strap made of 1 inch wide elastic, split over the chin and top of the head to keep the mouth closed. An open mouth lets out much more snoring sound than a closed mouth!
Trial of Drixine or Otrivine nasal spray prior to bed to see if a blocked nose contibutes to snoring by forcing you to mouth breathe. If it does help, perhaps nasal unblocking surgery is indicated. We do this too in selected cases.
Provide your partner with a non-lethal weapon to wake you with!
