It doesn’t take a genius to understand that snoring is not the most fun thing in the world. Those pesky noises can cause a disturbance to anyone nearby. Sometimes, it almost seems impossible to get a good night’s sleep. For those of us who are incredibly busy, our sleep is much needed. And, while those of us who love our downtime might value our sleep, others do not. To some, losing sleep might not be a big deal. However, losing sleep can be harmful. In fact, studies show that quality sleep is needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
A Good Night’s Sleep is No Game
Snoring is no game. Those who have a tendency to snore, are unable to get a good quality night of sleep. Over time, this adds up. Sleep deprivation is a very real consequence of losing quality sleep. The side effects of sleep loss are many, and affect every part of your health. One night of sleep loss is okay every now and then but a pattern of poor sleep can be harmful. A habit of losing sleep can lead to
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Increased risk for heart disease
- Problems with work performance
- Increased risk for diabetes
- Problems dealing with emotions
- Increased risk for illnesses
The risks for losing out on quality sleep are too high. Good sleep is necessary for a long and happy life. And, since sleep deprivation can affect everyone, we are all susceptible to the health risks involved in neglecting our good friend, the Sandman. Sound scary? Worry not. We all have the tools to take care of ourselves, and sleep soundly. If your lack of sleep is caused by snoring, all you have to do is play our snoring game, Soundly.
Our app is developed as a way to reduce snoring in a way that is affordable, effective, and fun. You might ask yourself, “A snoring game? Really?” Yes, really. Soundly was created by medical professionals who were sick of “band-aid” approaches to solving the problem of snoring. By researching the causes of snoring, our developers were able to better understand the root of the cause and work to get rid of snoring for good. This may sound too good to be true, but it is most certainly real. Using vocal exercises, people are able to strengthen the muscles in their soft palate, freeing their airway, and reducing the sound snoring makes. Instead of making an instructional tool, Soundly’s creators wanted to make these exercises accessible and fun for the general public. Not only does Soundly work, but it is actually fun.
How the Snoring Game Works
In Soundly, you play as a small creature being attacked by meteorites. Your goal is to defend yourself against them by destroying them before they reach you. The creature is operated only by sound. To move right you say “knee” into your phone’s microphone. To move left, you say “naw”. It may seem a little simple, but it’s easy to get sucked into the game. You can level up, and it is very rewarding to see your creature evolve and the progress you’ve made in the game. And, it’s secretly helping you tone your vocal muscles.
So, while it may have seemed strange at first, a snoring game can change the way you sleep. In a way, Soundly tricks you into practicing a seemingly boring task in an incredibly fun way. With 15 minutes a day of practice Soundly will have you sleeping sound in no time.
