What sleep position helps with snoring?

ANSWER

Sleep on your side. While heavy snorers will snore in any position, people with moderate snoring tend to snore only when sleeping on their backs. One helpful trick is to sew a pocket onto the back of your nightclothes and insert a tennis ball. This will make it uncomfortable for you to lie on your back and prompt you to turn on your side during sleep. And raise the head of your bed up by about 4 inches.
