What about coffee and sleep?

CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

You know that it’s best to skip the espresso af­ter din­ner, but what about the cou­ple of skinny flat whites you down dur­ing the day? We hate to break it to you, but caf­feine is the en­emy when it comes to a good night’s sleep, even if you’re hav­ing it first thing in the morn­ing. Why? Well, it can make it harder for you to en­ter dream land. Se­condly, for those lucky enough to nod off quickly, tea or coffee can mean a lighter sleep over­all with 3am wake­ups. Bonus (not): It can in­crease your loo trips dur­ing the night — it’s a stim­u­lant, af­ter all, and your blad­der is not im­mune. The ef­fects of caf­feine can last four to six hours (hello, buzz), but your body needs a full 24 hours to flush it out of your sys­tem.
