1. Watch your drinks in the afternoon, especially around 4:00. Anything that has caffeine such as tea, flavored water, orange soda, and energy drinks all sleep stealing culprits. Stop caffeinated drinks by 2:00 so you give the caffeine you have taken the time to be processed by your body.
2. Select superfoods, light, wheat pasta with vegetables for dinner is a choice that stimulates sleep. These foods have a combo of protein and tryptophan, amino acid changes in serotonin promote sleep once in the body.
3. Sip wine earlier, at dinnertime around 6:00 pm, rather than later in the evening. Drinking late may have you fall asleep faster, but will make the second half of your sleep cycle restless – cutting deep sleep and increases the ease you wake up from sleep.
4. Take a shower early, warm baths before bedtime is known to raise the temperature of your body and make it difficult for you to fall asleep, but the bath before – when you get home from work – it will not affect your sleep and can still give them a calm, quiet moment.
