There are ways through which you can reduce the chances of having sleep apnea. In fact, even if you are already suffering, certain lifestyle changes can help you. The best way to counter sleep apnea is to lose weight through behavioral changes. Losing 10% of your body weight will reduce the severity of sleep apnea while drastic weight loss can even cure it.

Other changes you can make to improve your chances include quitting smoking, alcohol, and sedatives, avoiding caffeine and big meals, maintaining a regular sleep cycle, sleeping on your side, elevate your head, keep your nasal passages open, and start doing breathing and throat exercises.
