Above is a picture of me in studio at Easy 101.3 on a morning where I ACTUALLY felt rested.   Unfortunately, these mornings seem few and far between these days for a variety of reasons.  Life gets busy and it can tricky to get the sleep I need on the morning schedule and with everything going on in the world, there’s a lot to keep us up at night.   I’ve noticed lately though, even on nights when I can get enough sleep, I don’t always feel rested.  So a little while ago when I heard one of Dr. Rondeau’s commercials on the station about snoring, it finally hit me, maybe that’s what’s going on.


Yes, I snore.  I know, it’s not very “lady like” but it’s my reality although it usually only happens when I fall asleep on my back.   How do I know this?   I tend to wake up the next morning to my partner’s complaints or in the middle of the night when he pokes me in the side to roll over (for the record…he’s totally a snorer too).


Anyway, let’s not play the blame game here, I did recently decided to a least check it out because if I’m not getting a lot of sleep, I should at least make sure the sleep I am getting is healthy.


So, I  logged onto Dr. Rondeau’s website to see what snoring and sleep apnea was all about…

According to research, about 60% of men and 40% of women between the ages of 40 and 60 snore. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but in some cases it can mean your airway is blocked, which over time can lead to a bunch of pretty serious long-term health conditions like irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.  All things I would rather not have to deal with.   So I’m going to do it, I’m going to make an appointment to see the folks at Dr. Rondeau’s and make sure my snoring isn’t headed in the wrong direction.


With everything going on in the world, I think a lot of people are trying to put their health first.  I’m not really into “New Years Resolutions” but I am into making small, meaningful changes to help make my time on this earth happier and healthier.  Starting with fewer complaints from my partner about my snoring!   I’ll keep you updated on how it goes.
