– Why does our own snoring not wake us up?


I did Google it but I didn’t understand.

It can. I wake myself up all the time. You probably don’t because your used to the noise just like you get used to sleeping with the TV or fan on.

Your brain really wants to react to danger, but it really wants to sleep as well. You hear enough of your own snoring that it gets classified as “not danger” so it does not interrupt your sleep.
