There's a song on country radio right now by Tim McGraw titled "Humble and Kind" which I feel teaches important lessons for anyone willing to learn them.

The sound of his snoring would become, as she slept, the snarling of a wolf or the roaring of a giant gorilla. If that's an issue for you and your partner, what will help reduce the nightmares is to reduce the snoring. For example, get the snorer to sleep on his or her side rather than back or to stop drinking alcohol in the evening.
