Your daily eating habits greatly influence how well you’ll be able to sleep on a particular day. There are some things you should note in order to ensure yourself a good sleep.
Keep your dinner a light one.
Refrain from eating heavy and big meals at night time, especially if you are planning to hit the bed later. Aim to have you dinner at least a couple of hours before bedtime and abstain from fatty, rich foods. These kinds of food strains the stomach heavily as they take a lot of time to digest and hence till the food is digested well , your stomach will keep you up. Additionally, try avoiding acidic and spicy foods at night as they might cause heartburn which can eventually disturb your sleep.
Reduce your caffeine intake.
Caffeine is infamous for causing sleep problems. Researchers state that a cup of strong coffee will keep you up for at least another 8 hours. If you don’t want to completely cut out coffee from your life then just avoid drinking it after lunch time so that it won’t mess up your sleep.
Lower your intake of liquids in the evenings.
In order to avoid constant trips to the bathroom during bedtime, reduce your intake of liquids during evening time so that you are able to sleep better.
