Selfcare To Do List (a fun one)

When you have lots to do or you are too tired to do much of anything, it’s easy to forget to look after your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Here’s a handy list of things, some of which are fun, some are practical and some are selfless but not really because, let’s be honest, it feels nice to be nice. ^_^

A great cure ring for snoring!

As anyone who has to put up with a partner who snores like an angry lion roaring will tell you, it can be really frustrating. Frustrating to the point of wanting to boot them out of bed – literally. I got a bit of a shock when my bloke informed me that I also snore “like a little dog”, which isn’t as cute as I thought and actually quite annoying apparently.

I was really pleased when another blogger informed me that Good Night Anti-Snoring Rings existed and I asked Good Night if I could put them to the test. My bloke was rather skeptical but willing and I was just plain desperate.

Good Night Anti-snore Ring

How It Works

The ring uses acupressure theory by applying pressure on specific points using two Acu-Activators which work on different pressure points S12 & HT9 located on the little finger. This works in harmony with the body’s bio rythms.

Good Night Anti-snore Ring

Info

You need to wear the ring for at least 30 minutes before you go to sleep.

Going of the Chinese belief of Yin and Yang men should generally bennefit from wearing the ring on their right hand and women on their left. If the person is a very heavy snorer however, they can wear one on each hand!

Wear the ring ONLY when you are about to sleep and for no longer than 12 hours.

The ring is not suitable for pregnant women or for people under 18 and it’s also not suitable for people with sleep apnea.

The Anti-Snoring Ring is available in three sizes Small J-P, Medium N-S. Large S-Z

Good Night Anti-snore Ring

Putting Them To The Test

After 4 nights:

“This ring really works, it’s amazing!” we are both saying.

After 5 nights:

Aaargh! Really bad night of snoring from my bloke, what the heck is going on?

After 7 nights:

Throughout the night when he’s on his back my bloke makes a quiet rumbling noise every now and then. I pressume this is when he’d normally be snoring loudly if it wasn’t for the ring.

After 14 nights:

Blissful sleep for the majority of the time. We realise the first snoring instance was because my bloke confessed he wasn’t sure he had the ring on the right way round that evening. I must admit I tried to put it on my ring finger a few times… ha ha, don’t even go there people! . The second instance was a result of my bloke consuming a large amount of beer (always a bad snore omen) and then being woken by me as I desperately tried to shove the ring on his finger. Hardly a great start to a relaxing nights sleep.

Our Verdict

Over all we are really impressed! The Good Night Anti-snoring rings which we refer to as ‘our snorings’ have become a nightly his and hers accessory. I haven’t snored once while wearing mine and I find it very comfortable. One could argue “Well you might not have snored anyway during those nights.” but the fact our snoring stopped and only returned when we didn’t use the rings correctly is a kind of default test, as I see it.

I must let my Mum know about these rings as she still hasn’t got accustomed to my Dad snoring, even after 40 years of marriage!

Money back guarantee on website:

‘If you are not satisfied that after using the Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring that it has not stopped or reduced your snoring after using the ring and wearing it each night correctly and according to instructions for a minimum of 21 days, we will refund your purchase price less the postage and packaging.’
