Many of us can really sleep soundly at night while there are others who suffer from insomnia. Some get 8 hours sleep but still feel sleepy at work. Why? Well, sleep apnea and snoring are almost the same.

When we snore too much in the night we use our mouth to breathe and not the nose. Breathing through the mouth compromises activity of our wind pipe, lungs, and the entire respiratory system. This awkward breathing style causes stress to the body and to reduce stress our body starts producing more cortisol and less of the growth hormone that helps burn fat in deep sleep. When the growth hormone is low, sugar also stays in the blood; our fasting glucose rises and in some cases we become insulin resistant too.

Our pulse rate also depends on this factor i.e how we have slept the previous night. It is very important to chew your food, smell your food before you eat; feel your food. Never eat food in a hurry. Eating food in a hurry will cause indigestion, which again will affect your sleep.
