Just like you don’t want to get in the way of your sleep apnea treatment throughout most of the year, you don’t want to interrupt it during the holidays either. More importantly, since you want to be relaxed and energized and ready for fun, you really don’t want your sleep to be an issue. Consider some hints that are sure to help.
Hint: Skip The Caffeine
When you drink caffeinated beverages, it can become more difficult to fall asleep at night. When you cannot fall asleep, you’re completely interrupting your rest! Ditch the caffeine, so sleep apnea treatment can work its wonders.
Hint: Skip The Alcohol, Too
When someone offers you the spiked version of the eggnog for the adults, do yourself a big favor and say no thanks. Stick with the alcohol-free version if you are interested in making your sleep apnea treatment as effective as can be.
Hint: Bring Your Treatment
You might think that it’s silly to imagine yourself in a situation in which you’re at your relatives’ house for winter holidays and your sleep apnea treatment (oral appliance) is at home in its storage case on your bathroom counter or on your bed. If you think you won’t forget to pack it, think again! It’s very easy to do. Write yourself a little list for the stuff you absolutely can’t forget (and everything else, if you so wish). You’ll find that it truly cuts the stress of holiday travel and it helps you make sure you’re on top of things with your attention to enjoying restful, uninterrupted sleep!
