Step up sleep with these snooz­ing se­crets

1 Eat din­ner early

Eat­ing a large meal late at night can throw off your cir­ca­dian rhythm as in­sulin lev­els will be high when they should re­ally be lev­el­ling out. Aim to eat din­ner around two to three hours be­fore bed­time and, if you feel the need, have a lit­tle snack be­fore hit­ting the sack.

2 Drink wa­ter

Wa­ter al­lows the cells of your body to work to their op­ti­mum func­tion, so chug back around six to seven large glasses ev­ery day. Sip on sleep-in­duc­ing teas like laven­der and chamomile too.

3 Eat slowly

Slow down and re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate your food to im­prove di­ges­tion. Eat­ing quickly means you’ll swal­low ex­cess air and feel bloated and more prone to in­di­ges­tion. This can ham­per sleep in the run up to bed­time.
