Foods and Drinks to Avoid Before Bed

The eating habits you may have during the day can affect a big part in how well you sleep. It’s really important that you actually watch what you eat before bedtime because it could affect your sleeping hours.

Some Foods and Drink to Avoid

Caffeine can keep you up ten to twelve hours after drinking it. While you don’t need to space out your caffeine intake and sleep schedule that much, making sure that you don’t have caffeine at least a couple hours before bed will help you get a better night’s sleep.

Another big tip for a good night’s rest is to avoid heavy rich foods at least two hours before bed. A lot of foods can be spicy and acidic which can cause heartburn or stomach problems. Try having a light snack before bed if you are hungry, maybe like half a turkey sandwich or a banana.

Understandably, after a long day at work, maybe you’d like to relax with a glass of wine. Just be sure to stay away from alcohol a few hours before bedtime. Alcohol may help you fall asleep faster, but it will interfere with your sleep schedule.

Try sticking to water or decaffeinated tea before bed. Frequent trips to the bathroom can cause you to lose sleep. Caffeinated drinks are even worse because they act as a diuretic.

Knowing how to adjust your body to a normal sleeping schedule is really important and will help you feel energized and refreshed the next day.
