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.
