A sleep expert has released her secret on how to stop yourself or your partner from snoring. 

Your sleeping position could help you stop snoring, which has many health benefits, such as preventing obstructive sleep apnea.

One of the easiest ways to stop snoring, is to sleep on your side, instead of your back or stomach.

Sleep expert, Kiera explained: "Perhaps the biggest advantage to sleeping on your side instead of your back is that side sleeping can prevent snoring.

"Back sleeping can often lead to worsened snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Your jaw, tongue, and other soft tissues collapse in your throat when you lie on your back.

The collapsed soft tissue narrows your airway and makes breathing more difficult, thus resulting in snoring.

Keep in mind that while sleeping on your side has many health benefits, there are also some downsides to the position.

Kiera explained: "Side sleeping has the potential to lead to bad posture as a result of twisting your body too far and shifting your spine from its natural alignment.

"To combat this, using extra pillows can help as a sleep aid. Knee pillows and body pillows are also useful to keep your body in place."
