Step 1: Give yourself time to digest Eat no less than four hours before turning in. Avoid any before-bed snacks, especially grains and sugars. Step 2: Digest high protein Digest high-protein food, such as meat, fish, greens, and eggs, late in the day. The amino acid L-tryptophan, which these provide, will release melatonin and serotonin for good sleep. Step 3: Calm the mind Include dairy products, broccoli, chickpeas, nuts, and seeds in your meal a few hours before bed to elevate calcium and magnesium levels. Research shows that calcium and magnesium calm the mind. Tip Always avoid alcohol and caffeine before bed, or entirely, as these can disrupt sleep. Step 4: Eat salad with fruit Eat salads with fruits, such as apples or pears, which are known to calm the digestive system. Step 5: Consume comfort foods Consume comfort foods like chicken soup that encourage fond memories and make you happy and restful. Tip Eating a light and healthy diet will keep your weight down and guard against sleep apnea. Step 6: Drink tea Drink chamomile tea with ginger before going to bed to aid and settle your digestive system. Warm milk can be a sleep aid as well. Did You Know? Did you know?
