1. Why It Happens
If you snore, it’s because the relaxed tissues in your throat vibrate as the air you breathe in rushes past them. About half of U.S. adults do it from time to time. Things like your weight, your health, and the shape of your mouth can make you more likely to sound like you’re sawing logs during the night.
