“Al­co­hol is a stim­u­lant as well as a seda­tive,” says Guy Mead­ows PH.D. of The Sleep School in the U.K. “While many peo­ple use it to fall asleep, it is also me­tab­o­lized so quickly that it can leave the body crav­ing more.” So when we drink al­co­hol close to bed­time, we are more likely to wake up in the early hours, leav­ing us primed for a night­time anx­i­ety at­tack. As a rule of thumb, it takes an hour to process one unit of al­co­hol, so to be on the safe side, have a last glass of wine at 7 p.m. if you in­tend to go to bed at 10 p.m.
