Snoring is a familiar sleep disorder, which is prevalent among middle aged individuals. Snoring is often loud or harsh sound that can occur at sleep, it can be light, occasional and untroubled or it may be a sign of serious underlying sleep related breathing disorder. About half of people snore at some point in their lives. Snoring is more common in men, though many women snore. About 40 percent of adult men and 24 percent of adult women are habitual snorers and become more common as they get older. Some people are more prone to snoring because of size, shape, tension of muscles, soft tissues near the airway, posterior to the throat. Recent studies have stated that late night eating and sleepless night may relax or tense the throat and tongue muscles resulting in snoring. Since there is inadequate evidence on this, the current study aimed to analyze the impact of eating and sleeping attitudes among 100 healthy individuals between 30 to 50 years in Chennai. Eat 26 questionnaire, sleep quality questionnaire and Thornton questionnaire were used to assess all the participants. EAT-26 usually provides very useful information about the eating symptoms and concerns that are common in eating disorders. Sleep quality questionnaire is a general, efficient assessment tool suitable for evaluating sleep quality in a variety of patient and research populations. Thornton Snoring Scale assess the effects of snoring on life and relationships in various situation. On analyzing the score of the questionnaire it was found that poor sleeping and eating attitudes has an adverse effect on snoring.
